Question about Lenovo IdeaCentre B305-10052
I have lenovo IdeaCentre B305 10052 pc, it has cpu on backside of monitor(PC is called as ALL-in-one Desktop). My pc automatically shutdown on opening few application (like browser, vs2010)due to overheat, i have cleaned my CPU fan recently but problem still exist. My friend has advised me to apply thermal paste on processor, but this is all in one desktop i don't know much about it, please anyone suggest some correct steps to overcome heating problem and where to apply the thermal paste
You are correct. The machine will shut down or Blue screen if it over heats. The over heating can be caused by the Heatsink on the CPU or GPU not providing a good enough heat conducting channel for cooling. Cleaning the fan is a good start, but also be aware of where the PC stands, is there sufficient ventilation for example to extract the hot air?
Being an All -in-One will make more difficult. But check if all electrical connections are secure as the power supply can also cause your machine to shut down and the power supply fan should also be cleaned.
To apply Thermal paste you have to dismantle the machine and get to the Motherboard. I suggest you take it to a repair centre as the dismantling can be difficult in these units.
