    Thank you for your effort in responding - -but the
    synopsis is this: --the board is approximately 5 or 6 years in use- -and the systems of computers, the
    programs , and the net upgrades , all have changed,
    and rather than waste more time and money , --it might be more advantageous to scrap the problem,
    and succuomb to the fact, that the techonology has
    outstripped what the people have --and no longer is
    useable --and besides, - -in accordance with the information on the site, where, --programs promise to test and upgrade the various items of the computer, but how would that be possible, when the machine does not appear to even boot up --so how would any program be of use to test anything ?
    I took a previous MSI board to Toronto --a distance of approximately 90 miles to be able to get the benefit of the guarantee of a board made in California --but then they refused to even mail it back to me --and I had to drive another 90- miles to pick up the repair , that only lasted a few months, because, the Bios file was the wrong one that they put on the machine. So- -I mailed it back to them in
    California - - and said 'Keep the Junk' -
    Asus (also of California ) - -has been fairly reliable --but as for guarantees, - -that is non-existant , when the devices are sold out of country.
    The mahcine in question --was one that my son-in-law had --which was previously mine --but it quit , and I was not familiar with the exact circumstance, except to say - -that the problem is the board or the software that runs the board--not the processor , because--the specific processor is still working on a new mainboard --'successfully'- -
    Thank you again - -(most sites are not that easy to access --to find information , that might be helpful . )

When i turn on my pc all seems well for about 5 secs then the heatsync fan and the tower fan stop moving and at that point my video card fan starts spinning 5 times faster what would cause this

Following are the reasons for overheating, just take care of these things::

1. Stop Overclocking your CPU
2. Make sure your Heat Sink is placed properly above the processor
3. Clean the Processor fan, Heat Sink and other peripherals
4. Use High Speed fans
5. Use CPU Heat Sink Paste in the processor
6. Make sure your dint restrict the speed of CPU fan.
7. Use Additional Cooling Units

If such problems occurs due to internal errors then i would suggest to perform a full computer scan with pc optimization tool like PCFresher for an instant fix.

Emachine w3609 cpu overheating

Easy Fix.. Computers over heat because either a fan is not working, Dust has clogged the vents around the fans, CPU and Heat Sink or the Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has become hard or too thin to keep it cool.

Remove the cover from the computer and set it aside then turn the computer on. When you hit the power button to turn on the computer make sure you hear and see the constant blowing of the fans. There will be a fan that is on the Power Supply where the power cord plugs in and a fan on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. If not, replace it. If the fans are ok get a can of compressed air from a local computer store and blow out the dust from the fans, power supply and all throughout the computer. In order to apply Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink you will have to remove the fan that sits on top of it and is normally secured by screws or some type of latching device. Once the fan is removed you can remove the heat sink and it too will be secured by screws or a latch catching device. Clean the old paste off the heat sink and off of the area it sits on. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste to both and reassemble. Thermal Paste is available at local computer stores for under $20

My hp dx2000 starts but stops but the chassis fun stop running just after 5 minutes. I tried to change RAMS, HHD, Power supply, fun but no avail. Sometimes it stops immediately it tries to load Windows...

The heat sink may be clogged with dust and ifthe BIOS temperature sensor controls the fan speed then it may be compensatingfor the reduced cooling by the dust build-up.
Your CPU fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust.

Shutting down almost instantly when powered on, sometime runs for ever , then on a restart it just shuts down. anytime i hit restart it shuts down wont start up again unless i power it completely off...

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown

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

the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty

My computer was making loud noises, then shut down and won't restart. Could it be the fan went out?

It could be the cooling fan to the power supply but it sounds like that went completely out and blew the Zenor Diode or something in the power supply. You can test the voltages coming off the power supply to make sure. If that is what happened you are better off simply replacing it. You can get them at Best Buy for about $40 and it is a simple 4 screws to remove in order to trade them out. Make sure you have the correct connectors for the motherboard. If the Power supply is good then you lost the CPU fan. If the CPU fan went out and the computer will no longer start up you may have cooked the CPU. Again, this is something you can replace fairly easily. The fan should run about $12 to $20 depending on what model you get and what type of CPU it has to mount to. The hard part will be the CPU itself. If it has overheated to the point of burning a connection inside the CPU will have to be replaced and while it should not be soldered on the board the heat sink will be very difficult to get off and when you put the new heat sink on to the old CPU or a new one you will need heat sink compound. Runs about $1 a tube. If the CPU just overheated and shut down the PC should restart once it has cooled if nothing else till the CPU heats back up. Usually takes a couple of minutes but not long. This is actually good news if this is what is happening as it means the CPU is most likely operational and that is the expensive part to repair in an over heat situation. The problem does sound like a blown power supply though. If you have to replace the heat sink and CPU fan once you get the old stuff off and as much of the old heat sink compound off as possible make sure you apply new compound to the CPU. You do this by applying a small amount to the center of the CPU and pressing the heat sink into place, this should spread the compound evenly and thinly over the CPU area and form a bond between the heat sink and the CPU to transfer heat between them. The fan normally attaches to the heat sink and locks down on the CPU. Connect the Fan power wires into one of the power supply sockets and everything should come on when you power on the computer. While you have the case open you should take the opportunity to use canned air to blow the dust out of the case and air circulation holes. Heat and Dust are not your friends in computers. Good luck with your repair.

Power supply not staying on

Sounds like when cleaning your computer, you have also cleaned your processors heat sink and fan. right.

if you have done this then there in lies problem.
either your heat sink is not placed correctly
or you forgot to apply a new thermal interface material. because once you remove the heat sink the interface material is of no use. you must apply a new one. and check that you have placed the heat sink correctly and firmly.

Power supply

as i think ur processor over heated. or processor can dos not work fine or heat sink not installed properly. remove heat sink, and use heat sink component (a whithe colour gel. u can buy it any computer accessories shop) use it top of ur processor then attached heat sink. and connect processor fan. before installing heat sink check processor fan. then cleare CMOS by removeing battery (because this problem also can happen wrong frequency setting in CMOS setting).
