im running a dell e7240 , core i5 4130u with 4 gb ram .
But the problem started back a while ago . i had been play BS for like straight 7 hours and the i started to smell something funny . at that time , i restarted the system and that time the cooling fan didn't worked . so , i flashed the bios and it started working . but the overheating problem is still in . just after a few sec i start the system , it exceeds 65 degrees . it stays around 80 degree to watch a youtube video at 1080 .
it may be the motherboard that causing the problem , cause i can hear a little shorting sound from it but not sure .
do you think re pasting thermal paste will do the job or will have to change the motherboard itself .
i've been doing a lot research here and there but didn't find any solid solution to this .
