1. If your computer tends to crash often after being working for a long time without reason, the cause can be overheating. 2. Make sure the access to the ventilation openings isn?t blocked and that the room is properly ventilated. 3. If the computer has a fan, open the case with a screwdriver and turn it on to see if the fan rotates properly. If not, replace it. 4. Clean any dust or dirt. The dust tends to interrupt with the functioning of the components and create static. Use compressed air (available in electronics shops).

If you?re not sure if your computer is overheating and you don?t want to check manually, you can use one of the monitoring softwares that check that for you. (for example- ASUS PROBE 2 which came with my motherboard).

Tip

CPU is overheating


Either CPU is faulty, or the heatsink has lost aderence with the CPU surface or cooling power.
Standard procedure is refitting or replacing cooling fan, in some rare occasion is the CPU, but that is uncommon and can't be tested.

Another possible cause is the temp sensor on the motherboard that is faulty.
first ensure that is overheating and check temp sensor using SpeedFan - Access temperature sensor in your computer.

When turn on my computer after a seconds the system is shutting down.. i don't know what to do, is there a problem with the processor?


A overheating CPU will shutdown and won't start up again until the CPU has cooled down.
The overheating problem (ie. thermal shutdown) is most likely caused by a faulty CPU fan or dust clogging the CPU fan and heatsink.
Check the BIOS CPU fan speed could be set too low, check the fan speed/temperature setting.
If this problem is not fixed, then the CPU will eventually fail.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely, if not then replace the faulty fan.
If the fan and heatsink are cligged with dust, loosen and remove the dust and use a can of compress air to blow away the dust.

Screen freezes and shows lots of lines - must restart everything. This is happening more often.


This can be memory, CPU, Hard drive, or graphics card, or overheating.

To check the memory, hdd, and cpu you can download the ultimate boot cd UBCD Burn it to a disc then boot to it. Use the utilities on it to test your components.

To check and track your temps you can download HWMonitor keep this running until it crashes. Once it does, reboot then open it again. The program will show you the max that the cpu and gpu reached in temp. gpu ovr 60C is usually starting to overheat. CPU over 50-60C (unless its a core 2 duo or quad then its 80C) is overheating.

To help solve overheating buy a cooling pad and have the thermal paste/pads replaced on the cpu and gpu.

If the problem persists then there is a big possibility that your gpu is heating up to much and the motherboard is starting to lose the solder joints to it.
