PC Powers Off

  Legslip 21:24 26 Mar 2008

Friends PC is a Fuj-Siemens 3.4Ghz Pent 4 with 1gb Ram running Win XP. It will run for half an hour or so and then completely and suddenly power off and does not restart until power button pressed. I have installed Everest but don't know much about the software but it reports temperatures as follows:
M/board 40 C
CPU 100 C
Aux 30 C
WDC ? 43 C
Not sure if this is source of problem. Any ideas?

100c for a CPU is way to hot i think thats your problem,look see if the CPU fan is still working or blocked full on dust and give it a clean.

yes, your cpu should normally be around 50c possibly maxing on 70c but 100c is way to high

....CPU fan is working but is dusty. B....y marvelous, comp. air can is empty. Will blow tomorrow and update.

100c! Chance would be a fine thing. My system cuts out at 64c!

As you say, get the comp air going.

Just to add to this;

If the cpu has been replaced recently,check the old thermal paste has been removed throughly and new applied.
