hey first thread so if its in wrong spot i tried :D well computer crashes when ever i give it some tasks which uses a bit of thinking ie converting avi to dvd or simply playing a game i downloaded a program that reads out all the temps and soon as i do somethin the temps skyrocket it is really really bugging me. I got the computer off ebay 3 months ago 2.4Ghz duo celron 1 gb ram 80 gb hdd, it has integrated video which works alright but i dont think its video car injecting heat as there is no complex graphics when converting avi to dvd.

I have put 2 fans on the case one bit one on the back and a smaller one on the side

Any help would be appreciated

Perhaps look to see if your CPU heatsink and fan are full of dust. It happens after a while.

Just be aware, if you're going to remove the CPU heatsink there's a very specific process to put it back (namely spreading a thin layer of thermal-conductive goop between CPU and sink). If you're going that way, google search and make sure you're comfortable with putting it back together.

sorry i cant see that being a prob as it has done it since a had it, the guy said its a bios programming error and that doesnt count as a return

there must be somethin that can be suggested to reduce heat? the cpu fan should be fine as its a pretty new comp would another stick of 1gb ram do the trick?i am close to throwing the pos out the window its virtually useless and it getting worse
