This indicates that the Processor is getting too hot. When the Processor gets hot the computer is programed to increase fan speed to cool itself down. To solve this problem you will want to install a chassis fan in your computer's chassis, either bringing freash air into system (intake) or as an exhaust blowing air out of your computer system. Purchase them at your local computer store they are inexpensive and are a great asset to your computer system.

Another option that will help the most is to clean the processor fan of dust. Dust accumulates over the heatsink and prevents the cool air from cooling your processor. Remove the dust with a vaccum cleaner and a paint brush. Do it in a very gental manner as you don't want to damage the fan blades. In some cases it is possible to remove the fan and get at the dust that way.

Take care!

Why my dell dimension 8300 audio jacks dont work?

If the on board audio jacks don't work, then go to your local computer store the online store that I like and buy a PCI Sound Card that goes into one of the PCI Slots on the desktop.

You can find one for less than $20. The link below will take you to the site. When it opens up just type PCI Sound Card in the white search box and press GO. When the search results return they show the most popular, sort the list down by Price Low to High. Whichever one you select read the details on it to make sure it will work with your operating system. That's the only criteria you need to worry about. PCI slots are universally standard, so if it's a pci it will fit in your pci slot.

Setup pc for audio recording

Records at the highest bit-rate you can (320 is the best for CD audio), keep the gain at a medium setting (too high creates clipping, too low will drive you crazy with volume), and try to set at minimum dual channel (stereo). You may have pre-set options for this, most are dependant on what you want to output.

If size-of-file is an issue, simply decrease the bitrate, but leave all the other settings the same!

Hope this helps!
