First of all. Pentiums are infamus for this, they overclock them to get faster CPU's and they dont get the right heatsinks for them and they over heat.

Do you have system fans?

You should have as many pushing air in as you do out to keep a constant displacement of heat.

Second of all, Go into your bios and see if itt has an option for a temperature Alarm for the cpu. If it does, turn it on.

If the Alarm is going off after running it for a while then you have a problem, the machine will shut off to protect the system.

IF its not going off then you may not be having any problems and your just fretting. Mine runs at about 50*C and is constant and never has problems with heating for 5 yeears now.

You tend to want the out fans at the top and the intake fans at the lower part of the case because heat rises up and is more easily displaced that way.

Good luck.

As far as a solution goes it would be hard without trying multiple things.

The first thing I would do would be to re-seat the ram modules and make sure they are in the correct position. In my opinion this sounds like it is the problem but it may not be as well.

Other than that go back to the old setup completely and do things one by one until you run into the problem again.

My Dell Inspiron 1525 keeps turning off while being used. It is usually when trying to play a online game or on Facebook. Could it be overheating? The keyboard seems to be getting a bit warm, but not any...


Download CPUIS's hardware Monitor (http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php it's free). Install and run. If the CPU temp gets higher than 60 C when idle or 85 at any time, you ahve an overheating issue. If CPU tem reaches 100 C, windows will shut down.

You may need to clean it up if you haven't done so in a while. Turn the laptop off, remove the AC charger cord and the battery. Remove the bottom cover and blow compressed air from a can (compressed air cans can be bought at Walmart, Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc.). Be sure you remove all dust and lint. Check the fan can be easily moved with fingers. Replace cover, battery, AC charger cord and restart laptop. Check temp again.

BTW, if you're running 3D games, online or not, get yourself a desktop. Laptops are a bad choice for gaming, since videocards can reach 100 C during some heavily demanding 3D games.

Computer crashes when playing games


you have ruled out the video card
and since cooling does not seem to be an issue on you cpu, your next step is to switch your power supply
after that one is ruled out,
your next replacement is your motherboard.

good luck man!

My notebook heats a lot!!!!!!


Hello, here is the deal, AMD and INTEL both have CPU's that have low heat. In your case you would have to buy a new laptop to switch from AMD to INTEL. The laptop motherboard take's only one socket type, for exp.. you would have to get another TURION at faster speeds or less speeds in the same socket family. Try to keep the vents open, sometimes the vents for the air from the fan come out the bottom not the back. You might want to invest in a laptop fan stand.

OVER HEATING


Hi,

Two possibilities:
  • the CPU is really overheating; and/or
  • the motherboard is falsely sensing high temp.
Corrective measure for an overheating CPU would be:
  • clean, re-lubricate or replace the fan;
  • clean or refit the heatsink. If it is overclocked, you may need a better heatsink.
If the CPU is not really heating up abd the motherboard is sensing erroneous temp readings, then the problem may be with:
  • BIOS version, try to flash and update the BIOS; and/or
  • check the temp probe underneath the CPU, it may need cleaning or slightly bending away from contact.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Motherboard problem


Chances are the CPU fan may be running too slow, dust & dirt build up under & over the fan blades can be a big factor. CPU fan could just be going. Are you over clocking the system. (IF so buy a better heatsink & fan for over clocking the system).
To check if CPU is getting too hot. Enter the bios & go to the title, "Power" page 2-28. Open Hardware monitor & check the CPU temp & mother board temp. (Make sure the case is closed in normal running conditions).
