Hi Freeen, Yes indeed 68c to75c is in the range of frying the cpu and needs to be corrected immediately. Several thing could cause this problem. 1. The inside of the computer builds up with dust. Pop the cover off and look, if you see alot of dust built up on the cpu heat sink (small square of aluminum fins on the mother board) buy a can of Canned air (walmart $4-$5) and blow all the dust out. 2. the cpu fan could have quit working( replacements can be found online or at Radio Shack) 3. The least likely, the computer got a bump, drop, kick, fall, that has jarred lose the heat sink on top of the cpu (Radio Shack has heat sink compound, Quick Silver I believe is the name, and don't buy the cheap $3 tube, spring for the $12 tube, it is worth it if you need to heat sink your cpu) 4. The one you can do nothing about is that the cpu has an internal short in which case you could replace the cpu, which involves the above steps 1, 2, and 3 for safe measure. Hope this helps

My system suddenly hang when we restart it, monitor does not get any signal. After when we get rid hard drive motherboard was working. on other system my HDD is working fine.

This is usually dust clogging up the CPU cooler.
When the owner of the PC forgets to clean the fins and the fan of the CPU cooler it plugs up with dust and dirt and looks like the inside of a vacuum cleaner.
There is not enough airflow and thus not enough cooling, so the CPU overheats and the safety circuit shuts the CPU off until it cools down, and the CPU will not reboot the PC until it is cool enough that the safety circuit can reset.

First step remove the CPU fan and check the fins of the CPU cooler. If they are clean, the problem is usually somewhere else.

My system worked properly for last 10 months. but before couple of day system is shout down instantly, i tried to start it again, but after the bios screen shutdown again & again................ after...


maybe the time you install os you did not install properly, or you make an online windows update,
you need to check what application you installed last before you encounter that problem, if still appearing the problem got device manager and disable the "automatic shut down on system failure"

thats it

good luck

Check the RAM modules, reseat to make sure it makes proper electrical contact.
Check the RAM specification and motherboard specification. Is the RAM module the correct type for the motherboard
If it still does not boot up, check the RAM module - take it to your friendly computer shop to test.
Check the CPU, make sure it is seated correctly and locked into position. If possible test the CPU in another motherboard to see if it is faulty.
