Cpu overheating

The cooling fins on the processor chip are plugged with dust. The fan may not be turning fast enough. If that's the case you'll need to replace the cooling fan

Restart it or get off of gamesites or things like, Minecraft, Call of Duty, Terraria, and others like those. If a game takes a little to load and after a while you can hear the fan getting louder you can do something else until the fan starts to slow down a bit.

There are 2 basic fans in Dell tower one for the power supply and the other for the Processor. If your computer is not booting then the Processor fan is most likely to be the culprit. What could be happening is that the Processor fan is no longer turning fast enough to cool the processor, so normal the processor when it over heats there is either protection to switch off the computer automatically or the computer won't boot. The best thing is to change the fan and make sure it is working properly but checking on the cables that they won't entangle on top of the fan to impede it's movement. You can easily damage your processor if the fan is not working properly.

I have a c200 1996 classic, auto. The front radiator's fan (NOT THE DOUBLE ac FANS) is not spinning fast enough to cool the engine. what is causing the weakness of the radiator's fan spin? I appriciate....

The front fan is a slow spinning ac fan, the rear rad fans are for cooling and also ac at times, if the car is overheating then you may need to check the coolant fan sensor,or the thermostant,

My pc is automatically shutdown

There are several reasons for a pc to shut down. One of the main reasons is overheating.

Did you properly put on thermal paste on the processor?

Ddi you check your processor fan to make sure its working and working fast enough to cool the proscessor?

Check all these things and if they are not done, put more thermal paste on processor and get a new fan.

If that does not work, the board may be defective and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps

All gaskets, waterpump, thermostat, radiator, heater core and coolant are new and it still runs at 230 DEG.. why?

How is the radiator cap? Are the cooling fans coming on? If so equipped. If it has a clutch fan, the fan clutch could be bad, which could cause the fan to not spin fast enough to cool the engine.

My dell inspiron notebook 6400 shuts down and starts up automatically...what is going on...I don't use a battery so its not that...just use the ac

By your description it sounds like your laptop is overheating. Many a laptop faces this issues because the Air Intake Duct is dirty, and the internal hardware.

When a processor in a computer becomes too hot, it shuts off. (More specifically BIOS turns it off) NO processor running, NO computer.

Since the opening for the Air Intake Duct, (Left front side), is on the side close to the bottom, it makes an excellent(?) location to 'inhale' foreign debris. Dust/Dirt/Hair/Food Crumbs/Lint, you name it.
When this foreign debris goes inside the Air Intake Duct it clogs it up, dramatically reducing the cooling efficiency of the cooling system.

The Air Intake Duct is connected directly to the System Fan, and this fan blows air through the Cooling Tube for the processor, and graphics.
The Cooling Tubes, One for the Processor, One for the Graphics), is about the width, and height of your little finger!

Use a can of compressed air for computers, and blow out the Air Intake Duct. (AC adapter removed,{Charger}, and battery removed)
Do NOT blow out the Exhaust Duct!

Use Short Bursts of air, not Long bursts.
You will be blowing air directly on the System Fan. This fan is only designed to spin so fast. Spinning it faster than it was designed for, can lead to premature failure of the fan's bearings.

Take a look at this,
See Number 12? That is the Processor Thermal Cooling Assembly. The copper colored S-shaped piece is the Cooling Tube.
Number 14 is the System Fan.

This is the Service Manual main page,

Would appreciate it if you would rate my answer.

your cooling fan may not be working propperly, check to see if the processor or rams are damaged

Try reformatting it and if it still stalls that your problem is your processor if it cant complete format propperly its your rams or hardrive..

BUT check your cooling fan, that system should not overheat unless the fan is not working propperly (spin fast enough or too small)
