Question about Computers & Internet
The machine boots itself up fine i'd use it for maybe 4o minutes then it suddenly looses power. id wait a few minutes and id power it back up and it would shut down after another few minutes about 10 minutes. if i leave it off for a few hours it will run a little longer. ive just put a new fan with heatsink, the fan runs fine at start up and continues to run. the yellow light on the front seems to blink alot but im not sure what that means. some one told me its the power supply but im not sure because it does turn on the machine. it doesnt seem to overheat, but it did overheat before so i installed the new fan. please help me id appreciate any advice.
I think the problem is with your processor heating. just download the following utility and see that the processor temp is not going above 65 deg. if so then check the heat sink. your fan is not correctly placed. also when replacing the heat sink did you correctly put the thermal interface material.
check your cpu heat status with this tool...
if the heat is very high then try to replace the heat sink or see that it is fitted correctly

Hi there. When you turn on your system, enter the BIOS setup screen. Depending on your BIOS, you may have a section that tells you the PC Health Status. If you do, you can check what temp your processor is, and it may even let you adjust the warning temp, (it may be set too low). Some BIOS's will shut down a machine automatically if this temp is reached, to save the integrity of the system.
Yes, you may have a faulty power supply. Try testing it with another and see if the same thing happens. Also, make sure that your power supply is connected to your motherboard properly. Easiest way is to just disconnect it from the motherboard, check for any bent/broken pins, then just click it firmly back into place.
If you need me to clarify anything, just post a comment.
