Heat Problems

Ive been having trouble for a while now were my pc shuts down after been using system itensive programs. I was getting round to thinking that it was my gfx card getting too hot. But I have had a few times now were my system shuts down while virus checking my PC, this process puts a 100% load on my processor during the scanning. After a while the machine shuts down, when I check the processor temp after shut down, its at about 46c which doesn't seem that high. Im using a 2.667 Intel. Any ideas welcome.

this is more than likely software causing the problem.

have you updated any drivers lately or installed any new software?

try system restore to a time it was ok,or through process of elimination remove one by one you last installed program untill its ok.

have a look in control panel/administrative tools/event viewer for clues.

also untick the automatically restart box in control panel/system/advanced/start up and recovery.now you will get an error message instead of a restart.note it down.

For an INtel 2.66 that isnt a bad temperature, i think they average at about 55c or around abouts. Do you use thermal paste on your chip? also if you are worried about your GPU getting too hot, put a small fan like a Skt 7 or Skt 3 with no heatsink and attach it to the graphics accelerator chip, it does make a huge difference to the heat of the whole machine. Of course you could consider one of those OTES graphics cards.

huggyg71 could be right as it could be a software problem, i presume u r running XP as i have a recollection of hearing that XP has a sort of protection system from stopping the cmputer from burning up by swithching off, this could be caused by one or more applications

I downloaded a system utility, which shows my motherboard has a temperature monitor. When running my virus checker the motherboard temperature increases from 37c to 49c. I turned off the shutdown option, and I get a blue screen with a page fault error. I get the following error info after restarting my machine.

Error code 10000050, parameter1 8d590a7e, parameter2 00000000, parameter3 8050da92, parameter4 00000000.

Do you think its worth reformatting my machine & starting from scratch.

I was thinking of putting a fan next to the pc blowing air straight onto the motherboard. If this takes down the motherboard temp, and it still crashes I can rule out heat. I was also going to disconnect a hard drive & see if that has any effect, Maybe I need a new power supply with a higher wattage.

i would try removing one memory stick at a time and see if it works.

then try maybe updating mobo drivers or even using an older graphics driver you knew worked and see what happens.

your temps seem fine.i have a 1.8 and at idle its around 35C(depending on the room temps)

this can go up to around 50C ish when gaming or if its a hot day.
