How To Fix Overheating problem?

TIP: You should click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system speed.

Overheating problem? is the name of the error that contains information about the error, including the reason why it occurred, which system component or application was malfunctioning that caused the error, and other information. The numerical code in the name of the error contains data that can be decoded by the manufacturer of the faulty component or application. An error using this code can occur in many different places in the system. Although the name contains some details, it is still difficult for the user to find and eliminate the cause of the error without specialized technical knowledge or the appropriate software.

From the Forums

A user in the forum details it further:

The scans took twice as long and the system overheated. Your CPU fan helps draw heat off the heatsink on your CPU but the chamber can't vent the hot air fast enough. EDIT: I forgot to mention that watching videos on my PC also isn't as good as before and it is choppy when in full screen.   No question, it's overheating. I'd suggest, if you have't already, add a "system fan".

You've probably have surpassed the threshold of software you can run on your system without needing more cooling. Hey everyone. The second "system fan" helpe evacuate the chamber. Current installed software gets larger with updates and newer versions a 2 to 4 times largers.

I have tried: - Reformatting my HDD. - Checking for malware with various tools such as : HijackThis, SmitFraudFix, Nod32, Malwarebytes anti-malware. - Updating Direct X. - Downgrading and updating video drivers. - Reformatting my HDD using: Built in Disk Defragmenter, Auslogics Disk Defrag. - Checking my HDD with built in disk checker and TuneUp Disk Doctor. - Testing my RAM several times with Memtest. - Running with only 1 RAM module and switching with the other one. - Cleaning the fans and heatsinks on GPU, CPU and Northbridge. - Replacing Thermal Paste on all three of them. - Cleaning the slots. - Leaving the case open while running. - Disabling and removing my Sound Card. I am having some issues with my PC lately. The problem is : All my PC games lag constantly, both offline and online. Repost if this isn't a solution. -- Andy  

My step-fathers computer started crashing on anti-virus scans because the detections rules were twice as large as when he initially bought the computer. Consequently, you system runs a lot more software which generates a lot more heat. My BIOS shows 70°-75°C CPU temp which is most likely the problem. Basically, you add a second fan at the vent in the back of the chassis.

It is possible that I have overlooked something while doing this so please, any kind of advice will be appreciated. Games that I played flawlessly before now lag, even the older ones like Freelancer for instance.

What causes Overheating problem?

If you received this error on your PC, it means that there is a malfunction in your system. Common causes are incorrect or unsuccessful installation or removal of software that could leave invalid entries in the Windows registry, the effects of a virus or malware attack, an incorrect system shutdown due to a power failure, or another factor in which a person with little technical knowledge accidentally deletes the required A system file or registry entry, as well as several other reasons. The immediate cause of "Overheating problem?" is a failure when one of its normal operations is properly started by a system or application component.

GPU overheating (PSU problem?)

All the original parts are still there. When I play any game and monitor the gpu temps, the temperature reaches over 100 degrees C in seconds flat. I've read many things on replacing the thermal sink or paste, but I have now clue how to go about doing that, or what it looks like on my gpu.

Looks like the Aspire M3641 uses 250W power supply. It never continues.

- It hangs at the title screen, then goes through everything normally till it gets to the vista 'microsoft title screen'; the one with the green slider indicating that it's doing...

One of several things can happen. Found specs for ED7200A & U3702A, both has 250 W PSU, so I'm guessing all M3641 uses it. All this is making it very annoying to boot up, since it can take up to 2 hours, counting all the reboots I have to do. After a while the blue light indicating activity starts burning, it never goes off, and my pc doesn't boot.

- It hangs at the title screen for a while, then proceeds through all the usual stuff to a black screen with a single _ blinking in the top left corner of the screen.

After a short while it continues and boots like it should. Either;
- It hangs at the very first screen I get, the Acer 'title' screen. I got a systemspec list for your information

CPU overheating - PSU the problem?

However I remember this problem not happening with my old PSU. Can a lower voltage PSU cause problems with a CPU overheating? My old PSU was 500w and my new one is probably half that. The problem has been happening for a while but I can't remember the exact time/date.

It automatically restarts the machine when reaching 70c (which I understand is the maximum temperature for the CPU).I am aware that this problem has occurred to other people using the AMD Athlon 64 processor.

Problem with something overheating??

This leads me to believe something is overheating??? The machine on boot up (even in safe mode) was sending the monitor an error message either "No Signal" or "Signal frequency is out of range FHxx FVxx Please change signal timing" ....I posted in this forum and got told it was probably my graphics card. Could it be the processor, Grpahics card or motherboard maybe overheating? I gave it a good hoover the other day and got a little dust out but in general it looks clean?

I'm using a 3+ yr old Mesh AMD1900Xp standard home PC desktop and all was fine until recently. I then tried with my normal monitor and all again was fine enough for me to get into normal windows (not safe mode)....THEN after about under 1 minute again the picture signal went dead! ****! This week I got my old grpahics card from a 7 year old machine and tried to put it in the new machine (wrong fitting though!) so i thought I'd have one last go with the old I pressed F8 on boot and got into safe mode and amazingly all seemed fine!!

Tried the other monitor and again "no signal". It seems strange that I leave the machine one week after the last problems then I try today and it works first time!?!? Anyone else any ideas?? Black screen then 'signal out of range' error message.

another overheating problem

I really need to do something about it but im out of ideas, and i dont want to spend any money on it.

Ive gave my bro my old 2600xp. Ive tried the stock AMD cooler and a coolermaster jet7 and they both get poor results.

Any1 got any ideas i can use to cool this thing down?? Now ive put it on its running at close to 60C all the time, and that is underclocked to 1.6gig so i know it will fry if i put it normal. Try artic silver 5

Serious overheating problem

I now have a beside fan on it and on desktop it is about 60C right now, but when i play video games (World of Warcraft) it can run at a worrying
90-100 degrees celsius, even at lowest quality in the game options. I havent checked the Processor fan, but i can if needed and i can also upload a picture of my case if anyone would like it. I've noticed some scary temperatures on the catalyst control center. With the bedside fan on it, the temperatures aren't too different than that of with the side case on, which is also 90-100.

The power supplt is Purepower 680W and im not sure of the motherboard specifications. You can change it to set it dynamicly or others, just choose the temperature and set how fast fan have to spin in %. succes

It is a 512mb video card with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual core processor 4800+ and 2x512mb of ram, and so far although the performance hasn't seemed to be affected...

CPU Overheating problem

p.s. Also how big are the case fans, and are they turned up ? Edit: Also forgot to ask, have you checked the Motherboard Chips to see if they are overheating? The first time I noticed this problem was when I was watching a Twitch stream using Google Chrome, and I had a few other tabs opened (9gag, YouTube, Facebook) and all of a sudden I got BSOD, the dump process went up to 100% and then the whole PC just froze so I had to manually restart it.

I had a svchost.exe virus located in Windows/Temp folder which according to VirusTotal was a BitCoin miner. Upon booting I got a message saying "CPU Temperature too high, please enter setup". I turned off my PC and waited a while, turned it on and this time it booted normally and when I checked the temp using HWMonitor, it was sitting around 50-55 degrees idle with cpu usage at 5-10% which I think is weird (btw my room is cold since I only turn on the heating when it get's below 0 outside). and how did you apply it?

an even thin layer enough to cover the chip fully but not too much so that it's overflowing on it? So I did and I saw that the temperature was around 85 degrees celsius. What brand is the thermal paste that you bought ??

Do any of the fans make noise? (Could not be performing at maximum rates)

for your CPU fan is it also running optimally(no noise, fully cleaned out, not bent)? Cheers

Just a question about thermal paste and fans:

Overheating problem (another one ;))

I have looked inside and fiddled around making sure everything is screwed down correctly, and im sure the sound is coming from the PSU. It normally runs at around 55 degrees. Its seems to be running well with 3dmark scores about 10500. You'll need to take a look inside your case with it running to see if you can find out which one is making the noise.

I have an MSI MS-6382 motherboard and 512MB ram. Sometimes it gives me a headache! Does this sound right?

I recently upgraded to a Creative Ti4800 GFX card. Today i had a temperature warning and it peaked at 70 degrees celsius and im sure this is too hot. Ever since i have had the machine (about a year) a high pitched whistle can be heard from the case. Could the PSU be knackered?

I have an AMD Athlon 2200XP (1800mhz) machine from Time computers.

Is overheating my problem?

Any ideas? The card worked great for the first few days and then I began suffering these debilitating FPS drops. I just ordered a Zalman CNPS9500, and I'm hoping this is the problem, but figured I'd ask if anyone saw anything else wrong?

This card should be able to max out settings for such a low resource game as Warcraft.

First off, relevant system specs:

Intel P4 2.8 (Prescott)
ASUS P4C800 E Deluxe (BIOS .1016)
1024 Dual Channel DDR
Leadtek Winfast A7600 GT 256MB AGP
Stock Intel CPU HSF, used Arctic Silver
Idel temps: 59C Load Temps: 73C (may be the problem)

Anisotropic Filter: 8x
Anisotropic Mip Filter: On
Anisotropic Sample Optimization: Off
Antialiasing Settings: 4x

Basically, when playing World of Warcraft, my frame rate drops from 35 FPS with settings on medium to 15 or lower when I enter any graphics intensive area. How good is your case circulation?

My GPU never gets hot.

I know Pressies run hot, but I&...

Odd Overheating Problem

any suggestions?

Have you cleaned the dust bunnies out of it lately? i am not sure if the crash was caused by the overheating, or if the crash actually caused the overheating.

All the internal components of my (old, free) Thinkcentre are running extremely hot.

both the case fan, and power supply fan are running, and I've used SpeedFan(i think thats what it's called) to crank up the case fan to full power, but the temperatures keep rising. it recently crashed (i wasn't there, don't know how it happened) and i had to reset the bios, and i lost but i was able to fix that. this is a recent development, i used to be able to leave it on indefinitely with no worries of overheating. That is the first thing I would do.

the components become too hot to touch, especially the hard drive, which struck me as odd. E

GPU overheating problem

My computer has 4 GB DDR3 RAM and a 2 GB nVidia gt 540m graphics card and is more than capable of running the mentioned games but for some reason the temperature shoots up the game begins to lag a black screen appears and the Laptop just powers off. Could you mention the possible reason for this problem and the solutions for it as well.Thanking you,Achyuthan

Oh and the model is a Lenovo Z570

The laptop is just 6 months old as well.

   Whenever I play any graphically demanding game like NFS:MW 2012 or Darksiders or Black Ops 2 the GPU temperature immediately shoots up to upwards of 90C.

possible overheating problem

Have I bought a faulty card, or is this what pny graphics cards are like? The galaxy graphics card generally runs at about 38 degrees while on the desktop. This isn't too bad in itself but whenever I try running a game (skyrim for example) it generally overheats and kills my computer within half an hour (last time I tried it it took about ten minutes). With that said, for testing purposes, use a single card.

Oh also, I've noticed that the temperature varies rapidly when I'm playing a game. While I'm running skyrim it'll run really hot (generally in the nineties within five minutes) but as soon as I minimise the game it'll shoot down to the mid to low eighties within a second. As it's new, contact PNY. After that it'll slowly reduce down to it's apparent normal running temperature of 50 to 60 degrees.

No offense, but do you really think all PNY cards overheat and fail?

Also, how effective are those seperate gpu coolers you can buy on amazon for example, would it be worthwhile looking into getting one of those? Sounds like you have a faulty card or a case with really poor airflow (and/or too much heat build up from other hardware).

I recently got a pny nvidia gts 250 with 1 gig ram, i've got it in an sli config with a galaxy gts 250 with the pny gpu as number 2.

They will want to troubleshoot and will RMA if it's faulty. The card generally runs at 60 degrees while on the deskt...

pc overheating problem

for the beep code error messages meaning. Before you turn your machine on again ,you might want to try and figure out why it overheated in the first place.It only takes seconds to fry a CPU. Are all fans running?Clean/reapply thermal Paste to CPU/heatsink.

what is wrong

Do a search here or at the web of the manufacturer of your Bios, Award ,etc.

Help With Overheating Problem

And what is your motherboard? How is your pc slowing down? (And who told you to clean your HSF?)
Have you tried to overclock it, or? And have you done any changes to the hardware lately? If you don't know the celeron type, just give us which motherboard you are using, and aprox time of when you bought the cpu...

If your motherboard were 70C, you'd have a very noticable problem. But before you run out and buy one, let's get into a bit more detail. But that's still a bit hot. (though not too bad, if my memory serves correct)

The easiest way to do something about that is to use a more efficient HSF (heatsink).

Last, what type of Celeron is it? So it is much more likely that it's the CPU running at 70.


It used to be unbearable, it would overheat for no reason and i couldnt stand the fan problem.But now when i run high end games the performance has increased massively.And games such as CSS doesnt even START UP THE FAN!! restart your computer and enter your bios settingsturn of the option for always keeping the fan on!STEP 3I know this is going to sound stupid... no sound no nothing.programs such as autocad run perfect, no fan is worked at all... I was right I can not explain to you how warm my laptop constantly was, the fan WAS ALWAYS ON...

after hours of research and fearing the fact of losing screws and my warranty if i opened my laptop open, i figured there had to be another way. dead silence.I REALLY DO HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU GUYS! 

Yes You are right! I vacuumed each side for about 1-2 minutes each moving the vacuum around.Im telling you, that you need to do this.And that's it...

it barely works the fan i was so shocked... i have a completely overheating free laptop now.

Ok guys, this is pretty exciting... It's actually True and Worked!!

And i managed to solve this in 3 easy steps. I made an account just to tell everyone who is having this problem and hopefully it will help them the way it helped me.STEP 1  If you haven't already, UPGRADE THE BIOS TO THE LATEST VERSION!THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!!STEP 2After installing the bios update,...

I think I have an overheating problem

Is there a real "freeware" software anywhere that I can check this?

The Free version of HW Monitor works great:

Fan/overheating problem

My cpu would run at 135 degrees Celsius when IDLE. Then a simple usage of the CPU would cause the temperature to spike above 220 again Celsius and the computer would just turn off. I took off the back panel (the largest one with a semicircle out-dentation) and where the strongest fan air is coming out and it turned out my CPU had absolutely no thermal paste left.  I don't know whether this is the same problem that you are having but I cleaned my cooling fan and cleaned the die on the GPU and CPU and the respective copper heat sinks, reapplied new thermal compound and the commputer is running at 90 at Idle (which I have no idea whether this is where it should be, but 45 degrees cooler than it was). Adam

Trying to determine if I have overheating problem

Is there something I could (or should) do to get my temp cooler? I was careful to apply thermal paste, clean out case, attach the heat sink and fan. I am attempting to attach a Belarc report on my system. My MotherBoard failed last week and I had to buy a new one and install it.

I am using Windows 2000 since Microsoft would not validate my XP OS that came with my emachine. I am more accustomed to MBM but it does not seem to support the model of MB that I have. When I re encoded a small video file (took about 4 mins) Speed Fan showed core temp as high as 54c. I am using Speed Fan to monitor my systems temperatures.

Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated. When I use the computer to do "normal" things (read e mail, browse the web, etc.) Speed Fan shows the Temps CPU 40c, Core 48c, System 39c, Aux 42c. Speed Fan says my cpu fan is running at 2872 rpm average. I got scared and did not do anymore until I can find out what to do.

I want to be able to encode some much larger video clips but I am afraid to try. Sandra will not install. When I try to anything else that is "heavy duty" the temps go up so high it frightens me.

I am concerned my computer may be running too hot. Do not know if heat was what caused old MB to fail. says some dll is missing.

When Speed Fan shows Temp at 50+c it also shows that little flame when helps to panic me.

Overheating/Misreading Problem

Is there a way I can make sure it is right? First off, I found this little FAQ sublink on the side of the page that relates to my problem, but I'm not sure if it is my problem:

I believe this is the problem I have, but I am not 100% sure. Lastly, is it safe to do this when my BIOS is reading that high of a temperature, even if it's false? I checked in the Asus Probe configuration, and it auto configured itself to the A7N8X motherboard, which is the one I have.

Here is the post that I made on their forums, so I don't have to retype everything:

Alright, I've been trying to fix this problem on and off for about 3 years now, so my mind is a little cloudy. Here are some things I've tried: Bought a $60 heatsink/fan that looks like a darn jet engine, bought the Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste which is supposed to be the best kind, bought a $30 fan kit that mounts to a PCI slot with 3 fans on it,and tried switching PSUs with no luck. I use Asus Probe to monitor my CPU temperature and it says my CPU is at 41~50C, whereas my BIOS says is running at about 75~81C. just kidding.

I have an A7N8X motherboard with an AMD Athlon XP 260...

G530 Overheating problem?

Austral summer, it's 35C here, and my dear G530 is getting really hot when running CPU-heavy stuff, i'm using it over a firm and flat surface, the fan is spinning, the heatsink looks clean, but it still manages to reach crazy temperatures (a few minutes ago it reached 85C!) until i go and underclock it using the cpu speed applet and kill all the heavy processes, still, the whole thing gets very hot to the touch. Is it normal for it to reach such temperatures? If you want to clean it yourself i think in the computer shops you could find small bottles with compressed air and try to blow the fan from the outside, otherwise it would be best to handle it to a Lenovo certified service provider, so they can test it for you and see if the problem is there. Regards, Delfy

Sometime when the fan is dirty (there is a lot of dust on it) it cannot ventilate the CPU properly and this is causing the CPU to reach crazy temperatures and often even damage it (together with the motherboard). Does anybody else experience this? Solved! Go to Solution.
