Your cpu is overheating, because of dust buildup in the fan area. You need to blow it out with compressed air ($4 at Walmart). If that doesn't help, then the cpu fan may need to be replaced. Good luck, hope this helps.

Thermal event won't ever allow computer to boot at all


"Computer unplugged from power, press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. let go. Do this procedure two more times. (If the Power On LED lights up, do it again) What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes. Check the Processor fan, check the Thermal Paste. Cheap as Thermal Paste is, and what it does for a job, best advice is to simply replace it. Need guidance post back in a Comment. Before beginning make sure the computer is unplugged from power, and you are FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions. Regards, joecoolvette"

Brian Packard;
"I cleared CMOS a few times (has jumper on board too) and even put new thermal grese on it....what finally did it was taking out the CMOS battery. As long as it's outl it works just fine, putting it back in causes an error again. Thank you all for your time however and I hope this post can help somebody else too."

I have a Dell GX270 running Win XP Pro SP3. Couple of days back when I started the computer, it gave me an error message which says "Thermal Event and so fort". Press F1 to continue and F2 to run...


Yes system board capacitors near the processor that have bulges and are leaking are signs of burnt out capacitors. This can cause a computer to randomly freeze. My Computer was checked by a dell certified tech that had similar freezing options.
Please replace the motherboard and make sure when installing the processor you use thermal paste and use an anti static wristband so that you don't by accident burn out any other components.

Error reading event file


The EVT files include the event log messages as they are stored by the system. Each message is composed of an ID (that is, the message itself) and a number of insertion strings. The IDs are translated into strings through the use of messages DLLs.

All the application event logs messages DLLs are defined under the following registry keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\ Application

All the system event logs messages DLLs are defined under the following registry keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\ System

For example, the TCP/IP service's message DLL is defined under the following registry entry:
Key = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\ System\TcpIp Value = EventMessageFile REG_EXPAND_SZ %SystemRoot%\System32\ netevent.d

Therefore, all the TCP/IP event log messages are defined in the DLL netevent.dll.

When the user double-clicks an event for which the message DLL is not defined in the registry, the message string cannot be displayed and the following message is displayed: The description for Event ID (51) in Source (aservice) could not be found. It contains the following insertion string(s): ... Below is a description of a way to read the system event logs of a computer with WINS on a computer without WINS. This sample can be adapted for any application or system component.

WARNING: Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to reinstall Windows NT to correct them. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Registry Editor can be solved. Use this tool at your own risk.

The following operations are required:
  1. On the computer with WINS, run REGEDIT and select the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EventLog\ System\Wi
  2. On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File and select a file name (for example, Winsreg.reg).
  3. On the computer without WINS (for example, the one used to read the system event logs of the computer with WINS), run REGEDIT. On the Registry menu, click Import Registry File and select the file Winsreg.reg previously saved on the other computer.
  4. You should now have the following registry entry on the target computer (that is, the one without WINS):
    Key = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ EventLog\System\Wins Value = EventMessageFile REG_EXPAND_SZ %SystemRoot%\System32\ winsevnt.d

    You now need to copy the file defined in the EventMessageFile registry value in your System32 directory. If X: is mapped to \\wins_server\admins$, you can run the following command: copy x:\System32\winsevnt.dll %SystemRoot%\System32\winsevnt.dll
    Of course, the file may be copied somewhere else, but in this case you need to edit the EventMessageFile registry value manually so that it points to the directory with the DLL.
  5. Close all the instances of the Event Viewer and rerun the Event Viewer. You should now be able to dump all the WINS events.

Every time i start the pc there is a thermal error message the sound of three beeps then shut down unless pc is left off 48 hours error message.


Thermal event are serious, (too hot) make certain of your fan/fans are working. Clean out the dust that has accumulated. Use you computer in a cool environment if possible. If the error continues, purchase some Arctic 5 ceramic paste take off your heat sync apply a very thin coat to the bottom of the heat sync (after you clean it of course) replace the heat sync.
Also pull out the ram (memory) and reseat it.
This should take care of it. If not please ask again.

Gateway e-4100 thermal event


There can also be thermal sensors in your power supply, on your motherboard, and video card. Does your problem happen during gaming/heavy computing, after x amount of time, or totally randomly?

If your case conforms to the later ATX spec or some derivative thereof, don't block the hole in the side of the case.

Just some stuff I've run into, maybe you already know this!

D300a shutdown


With the message you are getting on your screen,there are couple things you need to do.First thing you need to do is make sure your cooling fans are all working if they are your next step is to go out and get a can of compressed air to clean the heat sink on the processor and any other cooling fan that needs to be cleaned before doing this unplug your computer to be on the safe side.If the heat sink looks clean you may need to remount the heat sink using thermal paste.Remember after cleaning your computer try to clean it often this is one thing that most computer user's overlook.
