If the CPU Fan is plugged into the wrong post on the motherboard, it won't read the temperature or thermal indicator. Make certain it is plugged in the pin port called CPU/Fan.

There is a problem with AMD CPUs overheating. If its overheating then please don't use it b4 eradicating the cause. It may permanently damage it thermally. Clean the heat sink and recheck. If the problem still persists, touch the heatsink and feel if its really hot or not.B'coz the sensor on the heatsink might be giving wrong information to the system. If nothing work, then replace with a water cooled heatsink.

Hope the procedure works.

It sounds like you have a couple of potential problems. First it could be the fan is not working due to failure or not being plugged in properly. Second is that you need to put Thermal Paste between the processor and the heatsink. If you have not done this before, I suggest seeking out a friend that has to help out. There is many kinds of thermal paste and not one is universal. Find out the one that the CPU manufacturer recommends.

Fan not running , cpu very hot.Will that cause the fan not to run and laptop proline m548s switching off?


Oh nooooo !! If your fan never turns on, then get the problem fixed, but please don't continue trying to use the poor computer.
A CPU can get hot in less than a second, and if used without suitable cooling will eventually kill itself. Your computer turning itself off is a built in safety feature, but this usually only happens when the CPU is already dangerously overheating (when I say dangerous I dont mean it will explode or go on fire, I only mean it will damage the CPU beyond repair inside).
Some fans only start spinning when needed to save power/electricity/battery so those types have to wait until a certain temperature has been reached in the CPU before it will start to spin, which can make it appear that the fan is broken.
The first thing to check before replacing a fan is see if its blocked with dust/fluff - for towers or laptops, but laptops tend to be far worse for collecting fluff.
Make sure all fluff is removed from the heatsink area of the fan assembly, it should be completely clean all over - the fluff will collect in the heatsink fins.
If that's all ok (and this should always be done anyway), check that you have some kind of heatsink compound between your heatsinks base and the CPU - this is essential on most computers - the compound helps take heat from the CPU onto the heatsink to spread the heat away - and the fan helps keep the heatsink cooler.
Another thing is, as its a laptop, make sure that wherever you use it, you don't have any air vents being blocked up. Many many users have them on a lap, or cushion etc. and don't know that the air vents underneath are then blocked, causing massive overheating problems soon.
One of my most common jobs is to clear all the fluff from air vents on laptops, so that's what I would check first though. I get many that have a solid wall of fluff insde, some as much as 1cm thick. Some even have damaged CPU's from the heat as the owner has kept turning it on again and again, but actual damage is very rare :-)

Fix OVERHEATING Notebook


This is one of the most common problems with Toshiba laptops we deal with.
Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A135) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

Does it boot up into windows and allow you to work on it before it shuts down? Or does it shut down during the boot up process?

It sounds like it might be running hot or you have a virus or infection that causes it to shut down.

One sure sign of a computer that is running hot is to try and restart it as soon as it shuts down. If it's running hot it will not restart until you let it sit a while and cool off, then it will restart successfully.

Three things that will make a computer run hot:

1) Dust - Dust inside the computer, dust clogging the vents, fans, cpu and heatsink. Solution- Remove the case and take a can of compressed air and blow out the dust.

2) A Fan not working. Make sure the cpu fan works and the fan inside the power supply. If not replace them.

3) The Thermal Paste around the cpu and heatsink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Remove the fan that sits on top of the cpu and heat sink, remove the heatsink, release the latch that holds the cpu in the slot and remove the cpu (remember how it goes into the slot). Clean off the old thermal paste then put the cpu back into the slot and put the latch that holds it back on. Put a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the cpu. Turn the Heatsink over and remove the old thermal paste from it and apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste. Put it all back together and reboot.

Download and Install MalwareBytes and run a Quick Scan.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

On a little load ups turn off with in 3 minutes


Are you getting it to load up to windows completely? If so and it shuts off withing 3 minutes maybe you have a virus or infection.

Try booting up into Safe Mode to see if it shuts off or stays on.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity) and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. Open your internet browser and download and install MalwareBytes.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk.

You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

If you machine still shuts off after 3 minutes maybe it is running hot.

3 things that cause a computer to run hot.

1. Dust, dust in the vents, dust around the fans, cpu and heatsink.

2. A fan that is not working

3. The Thermal Paste around the Cpu and Heatsink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool.

One sign of a computer overheating is to turn it back on immediately after it shuts off. if it will not power back up and stay on then it is running hot. If you let it sit a while then turn it back on and you are successful, then it was running hot.

Hi, maybe he was over heating, open your tower and look the fan of your CPU and POWER SUPPLY. Did they work? If yes, did the dirt on the heatsink of the cpu hide the heatsink? If yes clean it and make a test!

My AMD X 2 4000+ Windsor is overheatting


Hi, you shouldnt even switch on the PC if its running at that temperature, machine will be restarting and shutting down on you.
If you just bought it, you should take it back to the shop.
Otherwise you need to remove the old heatsink and fan and apply new thermal paste to the cpu and resit the heatsink, if its still running very hot over 50c you will probably find the cpu has been damaged.
