Overheating and rebooting

Hi,

I have a heatsink and fan plus I have added an additional fan to my case. My machine keeps warning of overheating and then it rebots by itself. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

    Thanks, straight after I posted I found it was full of dust and cleaned it. This helped but is is still getting hot. I have noticed one of the clips holding the heatsink to the motherboard is faulty. I will have to try and get hold of another heatsink or at least the clips.

I recently got a new battery for my HP DV7-1245dx and it still powers off randomly. I trust it isn't a battery issue for it seems to only shut off when in actual use. Please help me with any...


Could be due to the system overheating; does it run hot?
Try using it on a hard flat surface to see if it runs better, allowing better airflow around the machine and check the fan is running, you should be able to hear it.
If it's overheating, it will shut down to prevent heat damage. Overheating can be very destructive to pc components. You'll need to open the case to get to the heatsink, fan and vents. Remove the fan and heatsink and clean. Clean all the vents with vac or compressed air. Apply a little thermal paste to the processor and replace the heatsink and fan.

How to overcome overheating issue in my desktop?


Depends on what's overheating. If it's you processor you have to replace the thermal paste between the heat sink and the processor, if it's the ram you need to make sure it has proper ventilation, if it's the hard-drives the same etc. You need to be more specific.

Have a 2.26Ghz Celeron D, Intel 865 chipset, 750MB RAM.....everything was going fine until some days ago, all of a sudden, began experiencing overheating.....the CPU temp used to be around 45 celcius...


Other than the compound being dried up, or the heatsink not sitting properly on the cpu, the only other common cause of overheating is a clogged heatsink or fan, especially if someone smokes around the computer, the best way to fix this is to use a can of compressed air to blow the dust out from between the fins on the heatsink as well as the fans. Other than that fans will usually begin to make quite a bit of noise before they begin to fail, but it is possible for them to slow down over time, as a last resort you can try replacing the fans. ( be sure to check not just the one on the heatsink but the one on the power supply and any others providing exhaust to the case) You can also try using compressed air as well as a vacuum cleaner on the power supply to increase the airflow through the case.
hope this was helpful.

Overheating desktop


Hi..It could be your processor is overheating. The cpu may be perfectly fine for gaming but it may need a bigger heatsink and fan or needs to have the dust bunnies removed.

It runs at first 10 mins then it suddenly turns off without warn?


hi this sounds like you might have either a overheating fault or the "switch" ( not a real switch more like a little silver tube looking item) on the motherboard may be at fault, you need to check the CPU heat sink and fan are up to the job, also check the graphics card if you have a separate one, it might be overheating, turn it on with the case open and just check the CPU fan see if is turning fast or even better still access the bios and go to the CPU utility and check the fan ratio there it shouldn't be less than 2500 to 3500 rpm depending on the board and CPU ok...hope this helps please vote thanks

My laptop shut down after powering out with no warning and will not restart.... Toshiba L550 screen stays black but when I hit the enter key it beeps........any suggestions


“My Toshiba laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without any warning. Sometimes it works fine for hours, sometimes it shuts down in 10-15 minutes.” This complaint we hear from our customers over and over again. About 15-20% of all Toshiba laptops we get for repair, suffer from an overheating problem. Yep, OVERHEATING!
This is one of the most common problems with Toshiba laptops we deal with.
Indications of laptop overheating problem:
  1. The keyboard and the bottom of your laptop are very hot when the laptop is working.
  2. The CPU fans are working all the time at maximum rotation speed and operate much louder than before.
  3. The laptop suddenly shuts down by itself without warning. When it just started, the laptop was shutting down after 1-2 hours and how it shuts down after 5-10 minutes of operation.
  4. The laptop works fine when it runs idle, but shuts down as soon as you start using any memory demanding applications (DVD player, image editing software, video editing software, etc.).

Solution:
If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It’s nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.
  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.

Turns off then will not turn on for about 30 seconds


This remarkable unit may have a working protection for the power. In the older machines, not saying anything just a comparison, when the power is on the filter capacitors take a charge and when shut off will need some time to discharge. If power is permitterd to turmn on at that moment where they did not dicharge to a certain level, that residual voltage plus the voltage of the power supply is suppling add them two and you might over power the PC and fry it. If the machine does not give you a problem stay with a blessing in discise

Computer reboots


Hi cool,

Is your Computer keeps on recycling from booting and never finish to load your OS?

As far as i know you got a problem with you CPU, your computer processor is overheating inside that's why it keeps your PC recycling it's power.

Try to go to the BIOS setup menu, and go to the cpu temperature and you will that your PC is heating up.

Hope it helps & give you an exact reason.

Enjoy.


tnx
