I Have a rather large prblem with my PC. It seems that if I leave it on for too long. It restarts.
I believe that this is a form of CPU overheating, as i have been monitoring cpu temperature in my bios, and it can reach up to 58 Centigrade in there.
The air from the PSU is hand-hot too, and i have tried moving my pc away from the wall.
TELL ME, IS MY PC DOOMED?
P.S. I have an athlon 64 2600+ running at about 2100
PPS. Every time I turn my PC on, i get a message saying the system has recovered from a serious error. This is NOT anything to do with the other problem, as I run a dual boot system, and i only face problems with one operating system. (It Is Not A Virus Either) PLEASE ADVISE
58 is a little bit high but the not fantastically so, my 2500 ran at between 40 and 55 degrees. The processor won't blow till about 80 degrees. I think the first thing to check is that all the fans are running.
Are you overclocking the cpu. Is it a sempron 64bit 2600+. If it is then it should run at either 1.6Ghz or 1.833Ghz. This might explain " Every time I turn my PC on, i get a message saying the system has recovered from a serious error." and the slightly warmer cpu.
