It could still be overheating from dust and old thermal compound.

You should clean the inside of the computer with compressed air outside and make sure you're running the latest bios firmware for your board. If the problem persists I would think about applying a new layer of thermal paste to the cpu / cpu fan.

Hope this info helps!

Thermal event issue


Overheating When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with 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 sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

After thermal event, pc will not reboot.


Buy some arctic silver from radio shack ($10). Remove the heat sink from the CPU. Apply a dime sized drop and spread it with a credit card or saving card. Attach heat sink.

Thermal event won't ever allow computer to boot at all


"Computer unplugged from power, press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of 10 seconds. let go. Do this procedure two more times. (If the Power On LED lights up, do it again) What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes. Check the Processor fan, check the Thermal Paste. Cheap as Thermal Paste is, and what it does for a job, best advice is to simply replace it. Need guidance post back in a Comment. Before beginning make sure the computer is unplugged from power, and you are FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions. Regards, joecoolvette"

Brian Packard;
"I cleared CMOS a few times (has jumper on board too) and even put new thermal grese on it....what finally did it was taking out the CMOS battery. As long as it's outl it works just fine, putting it back in causes an error again. Thank you all for your time however and I hope this post can help somebody else too."

In thermal my system fan speed has a red dot what does this mean


I believe this means you need to upgrade your CPU cooler fan!Usually it would react this way when a thermal event is takin place.In which case,your PC is getting bad thermal readings,so make sure you have proper air flow in the computer as it may be the reason for your thermal issues.Otherwise you would have to manually remove your CPU,remove the current thermal paste and apply new thermal paste carefully in the designated area specified by the manufacturer!-Hope this helps!!!-CB

Thermal Event


This is likely one of the following:

1) the thermal paste under the fan is dried up and needs to be redone
2) The case needs to be blown out of accumulated dust
3) the motherboard has an electrical problem (old capacitors failing etc.)

It could be all 3 issues.

If you are somewhat skilled the first 2 are easy.

The last one can be fixed in many cases

Gateway e-4100 thermal event


There can also be thermal sensors in your power supply, on your motherboard, and video card. Does your problem happen during gaming/heavy computing, after x amount of time, or totally randomly?

If your case conforms to the later ATX spec or some derivative thereof, don't block the hole in the side of the case.

Just some stuff I've run into, maybe you already know this!
