    My Dell Dimension 3000 is overheating, I took a look inside it, the two center pieces, which are metal, (not quite sure what they are called.) Are very hot. Usually if you let it go for a couple hours you can go on it for about an half an hour or an hour. Checked fans. they are running. the two pieces just seem to be getting hot.

Two possibilities:

  • the CPU is really overheating; and/or
  • the motherboard is falsely sensing high temp.
Corrective measure for an overheating CPU would be:
  • clean, re-lubricate or replace the fan;
  • clean or refit the heatsink. If it is overclocked, you may need a better heatsink.
If the CPU is not really heating up abd the motherboard is sensing erroneous temp readings, then the problem may be with:
  • BIOS version, try to flash and update the BIOS; and/or
  • check the temp probe underneath the CPU, it may need cleaning or slightly bending away from contact.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

The Xbox 360 E has green light turns red on console... New power supply & taken out disk drive & same issue...

RLOD... Red Light of *****... I have worked on MANY XBox360s, PS3s, and PS4s. The reason you are getting the red light of *****(aka Red Ring of *****) is due to your graphics and Central processing unit over-heating. One suggestion that may get the unit back up and running is to get compressed air and blow the unit out real good.

A second suggestion is to have the main board re-flowed(Graphics Processing Unit and Central Processing Unit are heated to the point where the solder points that holds the GPU and CPU onto the board hot enough to get the solder to re-attach to them) but would only advise taking your unit to someone who knows how to re-flow boards of this nature. There is a variance of about 75 degrees that separates a re-flow from a total board melt down.

A DIY way of re-flowing a board is to get some lead-based solder and check and see where the melting point is. You can use a hair dryer though, they don't usually get hot enough to melt the solder and ruins a good hair dryer. Temp should run between 550-625 degrees when re-flowing. You can take a real small piece of solder and put it on top of the GPU and CPU and watch it until it begins to melt. At that point, remove the heat gun and wait at least 30 minutes before you try and do anything with the board.
**PLEASE NOTE THE WHOLE BOARD NEEDS TO BE WARMED UP BEFORE YOU APPLY HEAT DIRECTLY TO THE GPU AND CPU.** This will ensure your board doesn't suffer from cracking that can occur during the re-flow process.

Lastly, go to a Radio Shack or a computer shop and get some Artic Silver thermal paste. You can also get it off of Ebay, Newegg, etc...
Remember to remove the old thermal paste from the heat sink, GPU and CPU with isopropyl rubbing alcohol as, this has dried out and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Last shutdown due to thermal event

When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (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 this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

Launch start up repair

Im not sure if you are wanting to get to start-up repair or trying to get rid of it
If you want to access it, Boot system and do a hard nshut down. Restart, you will have the option to Launch start up repair or to start windows normally
If you are getting the option screen unwanted, this is primarily due to improper shutdown.
Whenever you shut down always try to use shutdown, restart options in taskbar.
If in the event you are stuck and need to do a hard shutdown try pressing Ctrl/Alt/del simultaneously
to access task manager.
Here you can end processes hung up or do a proper shutdown

PC won't boot

processor may be heat up check it
  • Dust acting as a thermal insulator and impeding airflow, thereby reducing heat sink and fan performance.
  • Poor airflow including turbulence due to friction against impeding components, or improper orientation of fans, can reduce the amount of air flowing through a case and even create localised whirlpools of hot air in the case.
  • Poor heat transfer due to a lack of, or poor application of thermal compounds.

    Intel DG965RY CPU Overheating

    Check the clamp of the cooling fan. If the clamp is not engaged, heat sink didn't take the heat away from the micro processor causing CPU over heating.

    Won't boot up. Get a message early on in the process that says the following file is corrupt or missing: Windows\system32\config\system Recovery disk won't boot either


    This problem usually occurs due to an ungraceful shutdown, ie battery died before the laptop completed it's shutdown procedures or due to a failing hard drive.

    Try booting the laptop and pressing F8 repeatedly. When the black and white screen pops up you can try booting into safemode/Command prompt. If you get in to the Comand prompt, type, CHKDSK /F then restart the computer by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del all three at once.

    When it restarts it should go into disk checking mode, let it run and if it's only minor damage this should solve the problem, if that doesn't work, put your windows recovery disk into the DVD drive and boot the laptop, when it starts asking you questions try running the REPAIR install and this may solve the problem.

    If neither of the above work you may need to recover the laptop to factory settings(same disks) but should backup any important files you have saved first. If you do not know how to do that already I would advise seeking a pro for at least that portion as it is easy to accidentally wipe out all of your files.

    Hope this helps FixYa,

    D300a shutdown

    With the message you are getting on your screen,there are couple things you need to do.First thing you need to do is make sure your cooling fans are all working if they are your next step is to go out and get a can of compressed air to clean the heat sink on the processor and any other cooling fan that needs to be cleaned before doing this unplug your computer to be on the safe side.If the heat sink looks clean you may need to remount the heat sink using thermal paste.Remember after cleaning your computer try to clean it often this is one thing that most computer user's overlook.

    Instantly shutdown

    This sounds like it could be a heat issue. When you're in windows, you're using the processor more than if it just sits idle in BIOS. Using your cpu creates more heat. Make sure there is no dust in the fan or the heatsink on the cpu. Also, remove the heatsink and clean the old thermal grease compound off the heatsink and cpu and reapply fresh thermal grease.
