A friend recently put a computer together for me, as I have no idea how too. Anyways, about 10 minutes after using my computer I get these small green dots to form uniformly on my monitor, as the computer continues to run the the dots turn into lines. It just seems to me, a person with no experience with this type of stuff, that once the computer warms up it starts to effect possibly the video card. I talked to my friend over the phone and he told me to buy a case fan, I did. There is only one spot for the fan, on back wall of the case. I installed it, but to be honest I don't know if it is suppose to blow out the back of the case or back into the case. Doesn't make a difference since I have tried it both ways and the green dots/lines have came back. Does is appear my computer is running too hot? If so what are my options?
My friend is going to take a look at the computer in a few days.

thanks in advance

I'd suggest you stop using that PC until it's looked at. Sounds like it has an overheating problem or alternatively has a faulty display card. But it could be that the processor has been incorrectly installed, without adequate thermal transfer compound used between chip and heatsink.

Impossible to be specific, because there are quite a number of possible causes.

I Have Intel P D 2.8 Dule Core My Temps Are 30c Idle And About 40c Loaded Processor Case Is 34c And 87f Which I Think Is Good

I dont think you can have an average operating temperature for a processor because it varies greatly on the individuals setup. Your temps sound mighty fine if you ask me.

I would estimate about 10-15* c higher for idle and load if you are on air. Maybe even higher for load temps.

My Friend Has The Same Setup As Me Accept Stock Heatsink And Fan His Temps Are 104f 110f Under Load Is That Too Hot? What Is The Hottest A Pentium D Should Run? How Hot Before It Overheats?

Max temps for Intel Pentium D (dual core)
Pentium D 820 (2.8GHz) 63°C
Pentium D 830 and 840 (3.0-3.2GHz) 69.8°C

Typically, when it comes to cpu temps, all units are kept to °C to keep things standard so we don't have to convert between the two.

But your friend seems fine with his temps of 110*f ==>45*C. As long as your under about 55-58 under load i think you have no need to ever worry.
