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.

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

Model gx5shdxvbd03 keeps freezing up

I have a similar Samsung side by side refrigerator and last year had the same problem. i.e. the fridge side ices up.
In our case this eventually led to the circulation fan to stop working and the temperature to rise, all food spoiled. This was caused by the defrosting heating element failing due to a faulty sensor within that component.
Samsung are very aware of this issue and direct contact with their customer services resulted in an engineer's visit and a free of charge repair. We also were given a voucher for the loss of food caused by the failure of the fridge.

My computer shuts down while im playing a game

This laptop was not designed to be a games machine, so the stress on the CPU will be quite high, generating a lot of heat. If the fan is unable to dissipate the heat from the cpu, but more importantly from the graphics chip, the laptop will shut down to stop damage.

What I suggest is that you open up the laptop and clean the area around the heatsink and fan and inlet grille, even a mild build up of dust and fluff will cause the temperature of the laptop to rise 10 or more degrees. Eventually overheating will cause the graphics chip to unsolder.

Whenever I play a DVD, the playback seems a slow both sound and video. Not sure if I need to clean it or what? I have a Lenova 0769 running XP Pro Version 2002 SP 3.

If it is your cd-dvd rom, or your dvd's, your movies would skip, freeze, like any other movies players such as a scratch dvd played on your home dvd player. So,
did this happen before any updates to your o/s, such if you are using windows media player to play your movies?? If not, it could be a software issue, where some updates will bring your programs up to date, but uses more cpu/memory and even your GPU (graphic processor) and thus cause your movies or video to play back slowly because your computer hardware is underpower to handle the up to date versions., or it could be vise versa where your program will needs an update to the newest version to play. (Usually like adobe, java to watch youtube or online videos). You might want to see if you can play with another program and see if you get different result, or maybe undo your update to previous version.

After about 30 - 60 minutes the picture starts to freeze. The frozen picture resembles that of a chess board type montage. It starts with a stop start freeze which progresses until it is totally frozen....

The high rate of refresh on today's displays results in alot of heat.
The fact that your system works for an hour or so before going goofy indicates that it is overheating.
A fan directed to the back of the tv for heat disipation will usually do the trick.
Also take off any of the decorations around the TV that might hinder airflow.
That said, your tv should be able to withstand general application use without going "goofy".
If you are still in your warranty period, I would have it looked at.
Good luck

My computer turns off and on again for a few seconds. (this time it will bootup) when i pressed the power button. i already change the ram to 1gb but the problem still occurs. What can i do to fix this...

It may be owe to software problem 1, the virus "shock" virus attack will prompt system will automatically start in few seconds. From the remote control you Trojan program all the activities of the computer, including let your computer restarts. Remove viruses, trojans, or reshipment system. 2, the system files damage system files destroyed, as the KERNEL32. Win2K DLL Win98 features, the font list below such basic execution system files destroyed at startup, system will therefore cannot finish initializing and forced the restart. Solution: cover installation or reinstall it. Hardware problem: 1.Chassis power is not enough, dc output is pure, the dynamic response sluggish. Users often ignored or assembling businessman, using cheap price of power supply, so is the largest system of automatic restart suspicion. (1) the power output power shortage, when run large 3D gaming occupy CPU resource of software, the CPU needs power supply, power is not caused by overload protection, stop the power output. After the output power to stop, load, reduce power restart. Due to the protection of the recovery/time is short, so we are hosting automatic restart. (2) power dc output is pure, pure dc power supply of digital circuit requirements, when the power output of too direct, the harmonic content will result in digital circuits, performance is often work to crash or restart. (3) working load of the CPU is dynamic, on the current requirement is dynamic, and the dynamic response speed quickly. Request Some of the poor quality power dynamic response for a long time, could also lead to crash or frequent restart. (4) high-end graphics update equipment (large disk/video card/equipment (increased), after the hard disk) / burners, power supply of original beyond rated output power will cause the regular crash or restart. Solution: now in high quality high-power computer power. 2.The memory chip thermal stability, incorrect or damage to restart the system memory problems to restart the system of risk. (1) the poor thermal stability of memory, boot can work normally, when the memory to a certain temperature, temperature is can not work normally, which leads to crash or restart. (2) memory chips, slightly damaged, also can pass on self into the system, when the operation can be some big software throughput will restart or crash. Solution: replace memory. (3) memory of CAS value too small can also lead to instability caused by system memory, automatic restart. General had better use the default Settings, don't roll change yourself. 4.The CPU temperature exorbitant or the cache damage (1) the CPU temperature exorbitant often causes protective automatic restart. The basic reason of high temperature is due to poor cooling chassis, CPU, the CPU is undesirable reasons: the heat radiator thermal conductivity low, radiator material with a foreign body between CPU interface (1) for quality assurance, fan speed is low, the fan and radiator dust too much, etc. And P2, P3 motherboard CPU temperature probe damaged under the mp4 or within the CPU temperature detection circuit on the mainboard damage, the BIOS BUG in a special conditions of temperature, the CPU CMOS setup to protect low temperature, etc. Can also cause protective restart. (2) of an internal CPU, level 2 cache damage is CPU common fault. The extent of damage, or can start, when running into the system, the software (some throughput big media player, games, 3D graphic) will restart or crash. Solution: in the CMOS setup of shield (L2) or level 2 cache cache (L1), 1 or replace the CPU. 4.AGP display, PCI CARDS (nics), cat restart automatically (1) the external card or poor quality work not standard, AGP/PCI bus signal misoperation cause system RESET to restart. (2) and graphics, loose network system may cause restart. 5.Parallel, USB access is serial, fault or the incompatibility of external devices restart automatically (1) the fault or not compatible with the parallel damage, such as printer, a foot of short-circuit, USB equipment damage of short circuit, signal level sutural definition, opaque, etc. (2) hot swaps external devices, shaking, cause signals or power instant short-circuit. 6.Mainboard failure In case of automatic restart motherboard is rare. Generally RESET circuit are associated with a fault, Socket weld is empty, slots, contact undesirable, Individual chip, capacitance elements such as damage.

My plastation 2 grand theft auto san adreas cd freezes


Typically when a game or movie skip or freeze on the same part everytime there is something wrong with the disc itself.

Make sure you check the bottom very well, clean any finger prints, grease, dirt ect. Also look closely for scratches. You can purchase a disc cleaner at most places that sell dvd's or music cd's.

Its very unlikely that the laser is the cause, as you would have the same problem with any other disc you put in it.

Post back if you have anymore questions or comments and I will be happy to assist you. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Motherboard...and freezing

the portion between CPU and CPU sink must be clean, to work well for CPU cooling. So remove the fan gently and clean the surface of sink which touches on the CPU, also clean the CPU surface which touches on the sink.

hmm regarding connection if you can post a picture of your board i will mark on it where to make connection.
