Re: over heating processor

  • First, move it away from the wall, off the carpet floor, and try closing the air vent that hot air travels through into your room (not too much, don't freeze youself to death).

  • Then try taking canned air and blowing all the dust out of your computer. Only spray in short bursts or else liquid will come out and permenatly damage your computer.

  • Get a more expensive (and bigger is usually better)heatsink maybe around $25+,

  • and if that doesn't work go to BIOS (it should tell you how to get to BIOS everytime your computer boots) and disable any new technologies, like hyperthreading.

You must keep the case on so that the air actually flows like a current. opening the side case makes the case fans useless. keep the large fan blowing on it though.
Follow everthing in order and test it by playing games for an hour and taking the temp. 70 degrees celcius is actually pretty cool, so you can have it around 75-80.

A lot of things could explain this problem too, like damage to the motherboard, faulty BIOS chip, hardware incompatability, bad memory, etc. all coming back to your motherboard. If you find that its not the heat then you need to get it checked out by a computer shop.

My pc processor not hit when on the mother board my mother board is aopen mother board plaese give me salution

If you mean that your processor pins does not fit in your motherboard, then they are not compatible. The processor pins must be exactly fit the motherboard.
Besides, the processor type must be supported by the motherboard (If the motherboard is supporting P4, Core Dou, Quad, Celeron, Athlon, etc). You have to install the right processor for a particular motherboard. You have to know what particular
processor is supported by your motherboard.. In your
case, I believe it supports Pentium 4, but I cannot
give you the exact speed in Ghz, as well as the clock speed. You can ask the dealer about it.

Hey there alcouto, your motherboard supports Intel Celeron, Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Pentium D processors. The socket set is LGA775. The FSB should be no higher than 800Mhz.
