You have not indicated that it shuts down or makes warning noises (a warbling sound) so I would suspect the temperature sensor may be faulty. Have you removed the case cover and held your hand near the heatsink to feel the heat coming off of it? Is there a fan on the heatsink and is it spinning?i purchased new pc, and i have problem with the heat
my processor heat >>> 81-90C
1. Buying a DELL does not guarranty a trouble free computer.wesbroadway said:funny thing is i did a visual inspect of the chip about one week ago and have detected a physical hole, completely through the chip. it looks like it's melted. totally ridiculous. i'm pretty fed-up over it, i think i'm just gonna buy a dell next time. rather amazing though is that it does still work. can i post a picture of it on here? maybe i'll put the pic in my sig file. regards and thanks to ALL posters here, this is a wonderful forum.
