Are you sure the reported temperature is correct? How are you getting this indication? Is it through the Hardware monitoring in the bios, where the system would be under little load?

Have you checked that the heatsink is getting that hot? 136 degrees c is enough to blow the chip and I would have thought the computer would have shut down. placing your hand near the heatsink should tell you if its getting hot even without touching it

I would be inclined to download a hardware monitoring programme that will confirm the temps that you appear to be getting. If the chip is not running that hot it may be a faulty sensor.

To help resolve this, I would reset my bios to the defaults to eliminate that area first, then check my heatsink and fan to clean any dirt or dust build up. I would also try another chip to see if the same problem occurs. It COULD be a faulty chip

If the above produce no results, and your motherboard is set to defaults, then I would seriously consider swapping out the board.

I don't know what cooling fan and sink you are using but the Precott P4's used to generate a lot of heat and ran ay 75 degrees on a standard cooler, certainly recommend a copper bottomed or Arcic cooler pro type

    it was read in bios, and yes it does shut down as a fail safe, that was the highest temp recorded, al so i used a digital thermometer witch read at 128 c after shut down. its only just cropped up, its strted to run slow the other day :/ can be a virus as i run ubuntu, with care might i add, im not a noob with pc's i have a b-tech and national deploma in IT and have studded pc's for years... this has me and colleges stunned

    Has me baffled too..
    Firstly the virus issue. Yes it could be a virus, however, the sort of virus that attacks hardware has not been seen for a long time. I do recall viruses that changed the operating voltage of the hard drive causing the reading head to blow holes in the disc, but this was long ago in the days before windows and in the era of 5.25 floppies.
    I have moreover seen very liitle in the way of viruses with regard to Ubuntu
    I,m still inclined to suspect either a power issue, with a fluctuating voltage controller, where the computer is producing its own overclocking on its own. How or why I know not, as I have never seen this before. OR, before we call in Mulder and Scully, there is a distortion on the bottom of the heatsink, so thet no matter how much thermal paste is applied, the gap is not allowing for efficient heat transfer. Only by checking the bottom of the heatsink and lapping it on an engineers bed will you be able to see if thats the case.
    I'm assuming that you have alreasy checked the voltages of the 3.3, the 5v and the 12v trails in the Bios to see they are not more then 7% out of range? My thoughts are that eliminating the PSU as the first step would be the way to go, as this is the cheapest component to test, followed by replacing the CPU heatsink and fan and as I mentioned, testing the bottom on an engineers bed or by a tri-square to see the base is flush.
    After which, I would assume its down to motherboard power controller issues.
    Keep me posted though, this has me intrigued

Freezer temp. keeps rising

try to turn off the freezer and adjust the temp. settings to a minimum.. Make it 20 minutes for your fridge to turn off before you turn it on. If the temp. keeps on rising, refer to your freezer manufacturer to repair the thermostat inside of it.

The ac is not working properly. It goes from cold air, to hot air. I charged the ac with R134 coolant, but is not helping. What is the problem?

If your unit is cooling and heating ok make sure the mode your on is not an automatic mode as this makes the unit change between heating and cooling to maintain set temp select either cooling only mode or heating only mode this means once set temp is reached unit will stop until it notices a rise or drop in temp and will come on again in your set mode

ONN N15235 motherboard, which is a 775 socket. I am currently running a Pentium E2160 on its but its pretty slow so I bought an E5400 to replace it. When I changed the CPU over and started up my computer...

The LGA 775 processor socket doesn't matter, calderwooddu.

It's up to the motherboard chipset, and the BIOS program, and version, of what that Foxconn N15235 will support. I would go back to the Pentium Dual Core E2160, use CPU-Z from, (Free), and see what the motherboard chipset is, first.

(Motherboard chipset: The Northbridge, and Southbridge chips. Chip is slang for I.C. Integrated Circuit)

The Northbridge chip is what determines what Processors are supported.



Since the E2160 is built upon the 65nm technology, and the E5400 is built upon the 45nm technology, the Northbridge chip of the Foxconn N15235 may not support the E5400.

With the technology change are also Instruction Set changes. Plus other parameter changes. The BIOS program, and version on the Foxconn N15235 may not support these, either. Sorry to be a bummer.

Not a solution per se, Yet.

Need to know what computer this Foxconn mobo is out of. (MOtherBOard)
OR, if you get the computer operational again, let's use CPU-Z to see what the motherboard chipset is.
Need help in downloading, and/or installing CPU-Z, post in a Comment.

No boot and CPU overheat warning siren. The CPU fan appears to be working. This old computer was recently packed up and moved, but booted once after the move.

Although the cpu fan may be working, the alarms are set to a temperature setting, so if the heat-sink that the fan is mounted gets clogged with dust ,dirt hair etc.. the processor temp rises and the alarm goes off. And in some cases if the user doesn't shut it down within a certain time period it is shut down automatically.
When you boot it up, the temp might be rising to that setting faster than the operting system can load.
Try a vac to clean it / or compressed air to blow it out

Blowing hot air all the time

There is a door that opens to the heater core.When the vacum control in the dash gets old the diaphram gets to flimsy to close one port so it puts vacum to all ports.Therefore there is not enough pull to engage the vacum motor to move the trap door.Change the switch in the dash. Check to make sure that there isn't an obstructing object in front of the door before you buy a new switch

Black Screen appears and Windows restarts itself when on

if you press F8 do you get the menu items that you can use the up / down arrows to navigate ie to select safe mode etc ?

If so select the option to disable automatic reboot on error and hopefully it will give you a blue screen of death and you should be able to post back with that error as it is or google it and it should tell you the issue.

CPU max temps are set too low in bios ( check those and set them to a reasonable temp )

driver issue ( corrupt graphics card driver )

Or the power supply is not powerful enough to power the motherboard and everything else ( post back with power supply rated wattage ) and what you have hardware wise - have you installed any new hardware recently ?
