    Hey there nimjong, the thermal paste is there to aid in heat transfer from the cpu to the heat sink, or heat sink and fan. It is not recommended to run a computer without the heatsink and/or fan attached. This could result in the processor core burning out. What combination are you using, and are the fans, if any, working? Also have you run the cpu without the heatsink attached. Please provide as many details as you can.

If power on board then woking properly but working off after 20-25 mintues

20 to 24 minutes?

A) Plenty of time for the Processor (CPU) to overheat, and turn off. (BIOS turns it off)

1) Heatsink fins clogged with 'Gunk'?
(Dirt, dust, lint, hair, old socks {No}, banana peels {No)

2) Processor fan, and computer case fans dirty?

3) PROPERLY replace the Thermal Paste.
Thermal Paste looses it's thermal conductivity properties over time, so don't think you can just stir it around a little bit, and everything will be fine. Properly clean, and use fresh, new Thermal Paste.

B) Check the Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard.

(IF used.
ECS motherboard?
Since they are budget motherboards, there is a good chance Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors are used, and very few, if none at all; Solid Polymer Capacitors)

Believe the problem to be more heat (Overheat) related, though.

Continous beep on start

it shows processor gone out of order, the remedy is:-

remove the processor ... clean the white one i mean the paste
(thermal paste) then if you don't have that paste try to ask the hardware im sure they have one and grab it... don't leave the processor if it is not attach in the slot make sure to have that paste first it has time limit in exposing the processor it may cause a problem if the processor wont put back int the slot.. <the main solution is change the thermal paste then lock it up tightly.. the most important thing is just...lock it up so tight

1) Clean the inside of the computer. Power unplugged to computer, Anti-Static Precautions used, use a can of air, or two, to clean.
(Compressed air for computers)

2) Computer case open, computer plugged into power, turn the computer on, observe the cooling fans.

A) Processor: A processor may have it's fan sitting on top of the finned Heatsink, which sits on top of the processor,

OR, the fan may be a computer case fan in the Front of the computer, and uses a plastic tuned port to deliver air from the fan to the Processor.

In either case observe the rotation of the fan. See if it seems to be spinning at the correct speed. (RPM's)

See if it spins intermittently. Spins a few times, then slows down, or stops, and then spins again.

3) Check the Thermal Paste.
If the thermal paste in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, has dried up, the Processor will overheat.

If a Thermal Pad is used, remove it, fly it at the cat like a Frisbee. They are J-u-n-k.

Clean the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink, THOROUGHLY, and Properly apply fresh, new thermal paste.

This is a question regarding the Intel processor's internal thermal solution. I have a Core i7 870 processor. As a sidenote I've used it a few times to start the computer and it's functioning, but I can't...

If you have already wiped some thermal compound paste fro the processor then I reccommend you to wipe it completly from the heatsink of the cpu and the heatsink itself. The reason to this is that if you plan on purchasing another type of compound thermal paste in which have more conductivilty then you want to get the most out of it. Do not attempt to run your cpu without any thermal compound as you will damage the cpu from overheating.

Hi, I have motherboard gigabyte GA-8I945GZME-RH, why the cpu temperature over heating? although I change my cooling fan. Thanks

the temperature show in windows is not right sometimes. enter cmos setup by press del(or f2) open system helth to see the right cpu temperature and voltage. still over heating? you need a better heatsink and don't feget use some heatsink compounds.

After about 4-5 minutes of operation, the computer shuts off unexpectedly.Everything else appears to work OK, internet access, etc. It doesn't appear to be overheating, but can't be sure.

A computer that shuts off unexpectedly is most of the time caused by heat. Check if the fan in the power supply is working fine by checking the back of the computer. You can take out the CPU too, clean it properly before adding a new layer of thermal paste. In this way, the heating issue will be eliminated.

My computer screen goes black and has trouble rebooting.


If your screen goes black add no display, you need to open the mainboard and check the parts specially the processor, i think the processor overheat, that causes no screen become black, you need to remove and clean, after that you put it back, just put a thermal paste in the back of your processor, so that the heat is absorbed,

Good luck !!!
