Rise in cpu temperature

Movie dvd's and some games such as chess cause a big rise in cpu temperature with the result that the computer freezes or stops working and then refuses to reboot until it cools sufficiently. I use a pentium 4 with 3.2GHz cpu, Kindly help me fix the problem.

Re: rise in cpu temperature

You need more air movement through your case. Add bigger case fans (front and back) and a better CPU fan

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.

I have a HP Proliant ML350 G6 running MS Small Bus. Server 2008. It will freeze up 3-5 times a week which holds up work loads. What might be the cause of it freezing up so often? Thanks,

HEAT, is a big factor. That is a mighty Xeon Server Quad Core CPU and when it gets to work it gives off heat.

You need to make sure that the chassis is well ventilated, install some fans to keep it cool. Clean the heatsink and surrounds of dust. Use a vacuum cleaner.
Also scan the system for Malware and Virues, these pieces of code simply get the computer to do a whole lot of nothing usefull to you. Find them and delete them. Usually a good cleaning will get it operating efficiently and effectively, giving you a responsive and productive computer system.

Take care!

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.

Amd phenom faulty

Replace cpu fan , failed cpu fan might have caused CPU stoped working. If you are sure about the CPU fails then replace the CPU. If the problem seems continues after that too, then PC might have failed to boot due to other reasons. What shows on the screen once you power on the computer? There could be , motherboard , or harddisk faults too. Try unplugging other parts and see if the computer boots from CD or USD flash or floppy drive!! Once you know that motherboard works then replace the CPU. There could be BIOS setup problem. Did you check the BIOS for harddisk is set properly.

AMD Athlon 64x2 brisbane 2.9 ghz fans too loud now WHAT TO DO!!!

If you have no heating problems,and you used good cooling paste ,for resplace the CPU ,only loud problems, you can leave the original copper core cooling fan.first reset the pc, when you see the Welcome window of the motherboard (ASUS FOXCOMM, BIOSTAR ECT) click delete repeatedly, you will enter the bios setup, very carefully,only looking for (cool and quiet) and check this, you can also need to check the CPU temperature ,,normal is 35 C to 45 C ,(if the temperature is over 50 C,reistall the CPU and used new cooler paste) ,then you give scape. save the changes and restart the PC, now the motherboard fan speed controlled, as required, only spun faster when you really need to cool the prossesador, such as a very graphical game ect, really going to notice a big change cpu fan sound, if that cool and quiet and had been activated o this is a factory PC like DELL ,ACER ,ect ,and have no change, you can buy a new cpu fan on e-bay very cheap,like factory amd 64x2 6000 cpu fan and for no will have more trouble

System hangs up frequently

Might be a loose RAM (memory stick). Try removing it and then connect it again properly and see if it solves the Problem.

My x box wont play any of my games

If your xbox won't play any games it probably isn't a disk problem. More likely a hardware problem. Its very unlikely all of your disk are equally dirty or unreadable. You can also check a movie dvd since the xbox 360 will also play standard movie dvd disks.

If none of them work ....its not the disk its the xbox.

As far as cleaning them goes there are several "cleaners" available, that basically just wipe the disk surface, you can do the same thing with a lint soft cloth.

Rise in the Temparature & Processor Fan's Speed

Games and graphics place a huge demand on the RAM (memory) and processor. It is for this reason that gamers buy expensive video cards with huge amounts of RAM inbuilt into the card (The cards are almost computers in their own right).

Your processor has to deal with a lot of information when you watch dvds or play games .. it works damn hard ... hence the heat .

Your best option is to fit an additional cooling fan (computer shops have them in stock). Try removing the side of the computer casing to allow more air to circulate. Die-hard gaming enthusiasts add all sorts of extras to their computers .. water tubes to circulate water .... that sort of thing.

Your processor will become hot .. that happens in all computers. It's EXCESS heat you want to avoid. As a general rule of thumb, a processor's ideal temperature is 40 degrees C, though they do go beyond this temperature at times, without adverse effect.

First of all. Pentiums are infamus for this, they overclock them to get faster CPU's and they dont get the right heatsinks for them and they over heat.

Do you have system fans?

You should have as many pushing air in as you do out to keep a constant displacement of heat.

Second of all, Go into your bios and see if itt has an option for a temperature Alarm for the cpu. If it does, turn it on.

If the Alarm is going off after running it for a while then you have a problem, the machine will shut off to protect the system.

IF its not going off then you may not be having any problems and your just fretting. Mine runs at about 50*C and is constant and never has problems with heating for 5 yeears now.

You tend to want the out fans at the top and the intake fans at the lower part of the case because heat rises up and is more easily displaced that way.

Good luck.

Cpu overheat

Todays CPU fans are set to automatically up their RPMs if the processor overheats or is overtaxed. But the trick is when the fan itself is not cooling enough but rotates and makes this sound like a heicopter. Since you see it turning, you may not realise its cooling is poor. The best and long last solution is get a brand new fan and install it. The baby will stop crying.

Good luck.
