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.

Hot cpu and restart computer


well if the CPU gets hot it will shut down...
no ifs nor buts nor maybe it will shut down, reason being the cooling system and the fan is meant to keep the processors cool and if they over heat then the system cannot perform or stay up, it may be the fan so check into that if not run an hardware diagnostic on your system...
to do the hardware diagnostic go to;
CMD the type the chkdsk in the box and hit enter..
you can also do CHKDSK /f to fix errors or CHKDSK /r to repair errors... but those would not be with overheating and shutting down but regular chkdsk should get you an asnwer if anything is wrong hardware related...

Computer clicking inside...display flashes on and off...computer then just restarts on its own. Very unstable. Have ran the disk error option off Windows Explorer (Windows XP) as well as the file check...


open the case and see if a wire is touching a fan...

if the fans cant spin they cant cool the system and it will shut itself down to protect the processor and other systems.

Pc sht down stating thermal error. suppose processr fan not working. can this be the cause of the eror?


Most of the time you'll never hear the CPU fan. If you don't hear the normal fan sounds coming from your computer, it is most likely the power supply cooling fan. Hold you hand at the back of the computer where the power chord plugs in, while the computer is running, and test if you feel air blowing on your hand. If you don't, then replace your power supply. Make sure, when checking for a new PS that you get the correct pin count. Best to order from Dell since proprietary systems usually use proprietary parts and a generic PS won't fit in the opening at the back of the computer (alignment of the plug and the fan with the opening, etc.)

Random shut downs


Check the CPU fan it may not be spinning at the full speed or not turning at all. Check that there is not cable that is obstructing the fan blades. When the CPU over heats the machine will shutdown to save it from any damage. Then other thing to check is the power switch make sure that it is not sticky or stuck in. It also could be a memory issue but normally there will be a blue screen fault and audio beeps when you first switch on.

Try these Thanks J
