Re: computer going to sleep

Right Click on the desktop and select properties.
Click the Screen Saver Tab
At the bottom, click on power.
There you can select from a variety of power schemes and when your system will go into standby mode.

(Note these are Windows XP instructions, if you have Vista, let me know)

How do I connect the fans on a cooler master storm trooper. I have an extra 2 pin connector and am not sure if I missed something.

Hi, depending on how many fan plugs you have on your motherboard, you may need to get an adapter that goes from the fan plug to a molex plug..

Laptop shuts down during gaming

It most likly a heat issues I got one just like yours and it runs way to hot running 720P videos when I run 1080p forget lags and skip or hit dam near 200F. Use SpeedFan to monitor the tempature. Get a laptop cooler with a big fan in the middle that where the intake is for the laptop and it exit on the left side. Make sure you blow out dust from the exhaust and intake area. I am currently looking for ways to keep the fan going full blast all the time to keep it cooler longer fans are cheaper to replace not CPUs and mother boards

test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) Ide/Sata make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly

make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust

hope this helps

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!

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.

Dell Inspiron 1525 keeps overheating and switching off.

Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.

Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.

If you really must do it there are some
good guides here.

An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.

Do this outside with glasses on.

You may also want to remove the hard drive and ROM drive.

Take a
peek here for more ideas of what is involved.

There are a few are tips for various things in there.

DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand.

To make newer laptops last longer between cleaning a good 3 fan cooling pad is suggested.
never use a laptop on soft surfaces as the ventilation can act as a mini vacuum cleaner and encourage dirt build up.
Soft surfaces also block the vents causing fans to run more and burn out sooner.

Hope this gives you the information you need

Temperature too high! goes up to 90 C, when working intensively. Coolers not fixing the problem! No way to reduce frequency in bios lower than 3GHz.

get an ohter cpu fan, then apply thermal paste or heat paste the kind you get from radio shacks, or car sound shops, the thermal paste they use on the car amps is very good, it will bring the temp down to atleast 50

You either have poor cooling from a bad cooler fan, dirty heat sink or dry thermal paste or too much voltage supplied to the processor. Try to clean the dust from your computer inside. Make sure a cable or other object is not preventing the processor fan from turning.Find you processor's voltage and go into the bios and make sure it is set for that voltage.If not set it to that voltage.Let me kow how you make out.

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.
