The temperature reading of 262 degrees f is incorrect, think of it this way if it really was running this hot it would have keeled over and died long ago. The reading at 80 degrees is very accurate, use this one for reference purposes. Ignore the reading of 262 degrees f.
Thanking you

Got an ACER 7530G with a thermal isue. After some time it shuts immediately down. Seems to be a thermal processor problem. Fan is running, no dust inside. Processor temperature is between 52deg. C and 66...


If the fans are spinning then you need to take off the heatsink and ensure that there is paste between the heatsink and the CPU (its a golden or silver color normally). If not, go buy thermal paste.
If there is paste, then the heatsink was not placed properly on top of the CPU. Even if 3 corners are properly inserted and only one is not properly done, this can certainly cause overheating.

TOO HIGH TEMPERATURES AT MY LAPTOP ACER ASPIRE 5735Z


When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

I turn on the computer and it may run some times for about 10 or 15 min. and then shut down i was wondering if i need a bio's update or what i have two hard drives in the computer xp pro on 1 and vista...


It could be overheating. After it shuts down, restart it, and enter BIOS SETUP, and look for a "PC Health" or "Status" entry on the menu. If you're lucky, it will report the current CPU temperature, and the speed of the fans, and the settable temperature at which it will shut itself down.

Check the capacitors on the motherboard -- any capacitor with a "dome" on top, instead of perfectly-flat, is a leaking capacitor that is intermittently failing.

Automatic shutdown over heating


Turn the computer off.
Remove the side-panel, to expose the motherboard.
Turn the computer on.
When you see PRESS <blah> TO ENTER BIOS SETUP, press the <blah> key.
Use the "arrow" keys to move around the BIOS SETUP menu,
looking for any "system health" menu-entry.
Press the "enter" key to select that menu-entry.
It should report the current motherboard temperature, and the current CPU temperature,
and the temperature-limit, beyond which the motherboard will force a shutdown.
It may also report the speed of the power-supply fan, the case fan (if installed), and the CPU fan.
Also, take a look at the fans, to confirm that they are spinning.
Replace any non-functioning fans.

I have a hp slimline 3100. the cpu fan runs fast everytime i open a program or play a cd. it speeds up the slows down. sometimes it runs really fast, then the computer shuts down. whats going on?


This is an indication of overheating within the PC. Open the PC case and clean all the air vents. Take the heatsink and fan off the CPU and give it them a good clean. Put the heatsink and fan back on to the CPU and start up the PC. check that the fan on the heatsink is running smoothly.
Also, make sure the vents on the power supply are clear and the fan on the power supply runs well.
If you go into the BIOS setup, you may be able to monitor the fan and the CPU temperature.

My cpu fan spins very fast than normal and makes a lot of noise. I use hp d530 cmt- 3.06GHz


Most fans are "temperature-sensitive" -- if it is sensed that your computer is close to over-heating, the fan will run at full speed, very noisily, to try to cool it.

So, shut it down, and disconnect the AC power.
Remove the side-panel.
Purchase a can of compressed-air.
Give the computer a "blow-job", to remove excess dust,
since the layer of dust is acting like a blanket,
keeping heat inside your computer.

I have a HP M1270N Media Center PC. The CPU Fan


The CPU fan is designed to run constantly to prevent the CPU from overheating. The speed depends on temperature condition of the room; slow in cold and fast in a hot room. However if you suspect that it runs too fast them try re-seating the CPU. WARNING: Re-seating should only be done if you are know how to do; don't experiment.

If it is running noisy, you can apply one or two drops of machine oil to the fan's spindle.

Other reasons include deposits of dust; use a blower to remove dust from the heat-sink.

To make sure you CPU is not in a critical state, log in the BIOS and in the hardware monitoring tab check the CPU temperature. It should be near 60 deg Celsius or 140 Fahrenheit.

One thing more, do not apply thermal grease in excess; its a conductive compound and can short the motherboard if it melts and deposits on the motherboard due to high CPU temperature.

PC shuts dowm


It sounds like your computer is running to Hot>
You can check the temp. in tour Bios if you just want to see how hot it is running
I usually will run the computer for awhile and the reboot
and and before then press F4 or sometimes F2 to then go to setup
From there you bios will be there and you can see if your fans and the cpu temp and your Video cards temp..Which could be also getting too Hot and if you tweak it or if the Fans on the boards are covered in dust this will cause it to heat up. That goes same for the Cpu Fan too.

Note Please do not make any changes to your BIOS and don't Save anything

Thank You

Toshiba 4010 is giving me a "warning, problem with the cooling system message" Machine gets real slow. How can I inhibit this message, I have it on a cooling pad?


The electrical components in a PC generate heat, and fans inside the PC help move the air to keep the components from getting too hot. Excess heat will cause the fans to run constantly, damage components, and limit the speed of the CPU. All of these problems with high power and high heat will cause applications to work slower than normal. One of the main functions of the BIOS is to monitor the temperature and adjust the operating conditions. While the sound of the fan running all the time can be annoying, it may the first clue that your PC is running as efficiently as possible. To help your PC as cool and as efficiently as possible, do one or more of the following corrective actions.
  1. Update the BIOS
  2. Keep air vents clear and clean
  3. Minimize disk operation
  4. Minimize CPU operations
  5. Check whether FAN is enabled in BIOS
Thanks Rajesh
