It's obvious that your computer faces cooling system failures. if you can manage on your own, i suggest you do the following:

1. detach the cooling fan and its heat sink and check whether there are some dirty that prevent direct contact to the processor.

2.clean the dirty and get the cooling system back to its position. make sure that the sink firmly touches the system processor.

Whirlpool single/double oven NO HEAT AFTER SELF CLEAN

Problem: you have just cleaned your oven
now the unit won't heat at all.

Solution: There is a thermal cutoff in the very back of the unit
take the unit out of the hole
take the back panel off
you will find to the upper left the thermal cutoff
it's a round component with 2 wires going to it either 2 orange or 2 red wires
take it off if you have an ohm meter check continuity
if you have no continuity it is bad

Tip: Go to FRYs or maybe home depot
The stuff you need is called FREEZE IT
with gloves on or just stick the component on the ground upside down
spray the FREEZE IT to the back of the component till it turns white
get your screw driver and tap the back of it a couple of times
check for continuity if you have regained continuity
put it back on and put unit back together
You should be back in business
if you cannot find FREEZE it try sticking it in the freezer overnight
then tap on with screw driver/check continuity
if the continuity never comes back then you are going to have to replace that part.
But for the most part this usually works.

System freezes on boot up

hi there,

did your system to press F1 to continue. not try to go on BIOS setup. on booting process press F2 or Delete tab. and then click on safe mode if the booting will continue to run. come up a confirmation if you continue in safe mode click yes. and then work on that system for a couple of minutes, and then restart you pc.

you have too many start up programs. that why it will freeze during start up.
