Re: overheating

98% of what?
It's fine for a cpu to run at 98% of capacity, especially processing video files.

Hi My dell Precision T7500 makes huge fan noise constantly. It is the front cage fan and is a new original Dell part.

Edward Farren-Price,
The 2 video cards put off a lot of heat. The fan needs to run to keep the system from overheating. If the fan has alot of dust build up you may want to use some canned air to blow the dust off. You can click the link below to download the online service manual. The manual provides information on the location of parts within your computer.

Have you checked whether the computer your using meets CorelDraw X6's System Requirements?

Other thing is are you keeping an eye on temperature of CPU especially if it's working really hard (Just like a cars engine that runs at high end of revs eventually cooling will not be able to be enough to keep it at proper operating temperature), therefore shutdown.

OR it's time to clean fans on CPU and or Case Fans etc.

All the best anyway.

My computer automatically shuts off when not inactive for 5 minutes

Hello jeepmallabo,
The shutdown is probably due to hardware overheating. Make sure that your CPU fan is automatically increasing in speed when the processor is being used. You should hear the sounds.
It is possible that the fan controller may not be working or the fan itself is going bad. When dealing with retail CPUs, its always best to purchase an aftermarket CPU cooler.
Hope this helps!

Overheating intel 915 2.8ghz processor 50degrees

The overheating problem (ie. thermal shutdown) is most likely caused by a faulty CPU fan or dust clogging the CPU fan and heatsink.
Check the BIOS CPU fan speed could be set too low, check the fan speed/temperature setting.
If this problem is not fixed, then the CPU will eventually fail.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not then replace the faulty fan.
If the fan and heatsink are cligged with dust, loosen and remove the dust and use a can of compress air to blow away the dust.

I have a "p4 processor with 3.06ghz speed";i recently having problem of overheating and my temperature is rising to 100degree when CPU utilization is 100%.. .This all happened when i took out my heat-sink...

you should make sure that the heatsink and fan are clean and dust free, then you should clean all the thermal paste off with som alcohol(preferably 90% pure isopropyl alcohol)but 75 will work too make sure the top of the processor is clean also,then reapply the thermal paste.that should help,but if temps still run high then you should look for a better cooler.

Computer speed

There are several ways to boost a Computer and there are also several reasons why the Computer is slow, like virus, ram, temporary files, cookies, cache files, cpu overheating, motherboard dust-clogged, power supply, etc..etc..

[in most cases antivirus like Norton slows down the system which makes the system unstable. Also note that there's no multiple antivirus softwares installed on your system, if so uninstall both or all and reinstall which you think is most effective]

Well, first try with this utility....(click here to download)
Install it, run both the "Cleaner" and "Registry" cleaner. Restart your computer and check if it helps or not.
If this doesn't help, you need to check the whole system, I would suggest you to clean everything inside the box including the ram and the cpu with the heat-sink as well. Blow away all the dust on the motherboard and on the power supply unit. (you'll need to disassemble your system to do this).

It's also important to install an updated antivirus and run a full system virus scan.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Screen goes black when i try to adjust resolution sine i added optimizer for my dual core Athlon 64 X2 3800+ processor, same thing happened yesterday when i downloaded the other update,the reason im trying...

un install the optimizer, its not really that good, it just tweaks the settings of your visuals, if you want a really good converter, download Total converter, its the best converter out there and takes only minutes, can convert to any file from any file

Processor overheating

Hi have you cleaned the heatsink? Also replace the paste on the CPU, also you could try installing an extra fan on the case to increase air flow. Also check that your RAM is seated properly and any other chip and card on your board is firmly plugged in. If all this fails replace your CPU. Regards mistyman
