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).

Most laptop having high temperature. Use notebook cooler and place it under the laptop...Overheating is caused by CPU..so if you can opening the CPU, clean the CPU for both cooler and CPU surface, then put into it a cpu thermal grease. This way will reduce CPU temperature.

Overheating intel 915 2.8ghz processor 50degrees

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.

Overheating although cooling fan & heatsink are ok

u r saying that the laptop is overheating. I think it is from cpu overheating right. just to make sure that it is cpu overheating, just go to the following link and download the software around 1mb which displays each and every component heating levels.
from that you can find out the exact component.

if cpu is heating then just replace the thermal interface material and the problem will be gone.
if the cpu thermal interface material is too old then this type of problems arises

I HAVE P5RD1-VM ASUS BOARD NOW COMPUTER STARTED PROBLEM

Hi,

several reasons for this.

1:) CPU Overheating.
2:) RAM Overheating.
3:) Motherboard Component Overheating.
4:) FAN not operating correctly.

These are a few things that can shutdown a computer after a few minutes, also viruses/trojans et,c.
can shut off hard-drives. and even instruct the bios to change settings.

Check that the CPU And case fans work correctly.
