Re: slight overheating

Check that the radiator fan is switching on and off regularly when the car is idling stationary and hot. If not then there could be a fault with the fan or thermoswitch. Make sure the radiator is not becoming clogged with insects/leaves/small children. Dont use tap water in the coolant, it can coat the waterways with limescale reducing cooling efficiency. Use de-ionized. Or suspect the thermostat, they are quite cheap so rather than gettting it out and testing it on the stove in a pan of hot water just replace it with a new one. Make sure there isn't an airlock in the heater matrix, put the heating on full and make sure it's blowing nice and warm. Of course it could just be a fault with the temp. gauge or sender, you'd need to remove the sender and place it in some nearly boiling water and look at the gauge. Good luck.

Cpu fan not turning on

must be the pulse width modulator (PWM) circuits that control the fan, I'm afraid there's nothing you can do with that unless you work for the manufacturer, but you can get converters so that you can hook the fans up to the power supply, this should be a good fix until you get a new board!

Cpu overheating

You can try to use another fan with high cooling capability. Also you can adjust the CPU temp on the BIOS setup.

CMOS battery dead and need to install a replacement. Have some external 4.5 volt CMOS batteries with a plug on them and wanted to know if I could use one, temporarily. Noted that there's a VCC pin bank...

NO, that is used to reset the CMOS. The jumper normally is in the normal position (pun intended). It is moved to the other positon which disconnects the battery and empties the CMOS. The normal voltage is 3V and although 4.5 is not terribly higher I would not recommend it. Your best solution is leave it running until you get the new battery. They are common most of the time (a coin type battery) and can be purchased at most stores as they are common to other common devices (pun intended again)

Game Sluttering

Many reasons for game to stutter. 1. Virus can slow down your pc performance - run virus scan 2. Overheating issue with processor fan - blow out the fan with compressed air 3. Overheating video card - blow out video card 4. Lots of programs running in the background - ctrl+alt+del then check how much RAM is being used and how many processors If these above problem solutions to much i would just reinstall OS and blow out the fans. 5.

Hello sir, the system zone-2 temp., always keeps flashing in red.

It is a motherboard problem. But you can disable that alarm from the BIOS. I would simply raise the upper threshold in zone two from 56 to 60 if I were you. If it still flashes red put it back to 56 and disable it.

Processor Overheating

It is important to use good quality thermal paste like Arctic Silver. You only need a very small amount on the heat sink. Too much is as bad as none at all. You care just trying to create a thin layer of thermal paste to fill in the tiny gaps between the processor and the heat sink. If this does not help an aftermarket heat sink with more fins and a better fan might be needed.

Two possibilities:
  • the CPU is really overheating; and/or
  • the motherboard is falsely sensing high temp.
Corrective measure for an overheating CPU would be:
  • clean, re-lubricate or replace the fan;
  • clean or refit the heatsink. If it is overclocked, you may need a better heatsink.
If the CPU is not really heating up abd the motherboard is sensing erroneous temp readings, then the problem may be with:
  • BIOS version, try to flash and update the BIOS; and/or
  • check the temp probe underneath the CPU, it may need cleaning or slightly bending away from contact.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Motherboard problem

Chances are the CPU fan may be running too slow, dust & dirt build up under & over the fan blades can be a big factor. CPU fan could just be going. Are you over clocking the system. (IF so buy a better heatsink & fan for over clocking the system).
To check if CPU is getting too hot. Enter the bios & go to the title, "Power" page 2-28. Open Hardware monitor & check the CPU temp & mother board temp. (Make sure the case is closed in normal running conditions).

better check the compatibility of your board first for the video card you are using
