Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and have a problem.
When I first bought my computer last summer certain processor heavy applications caused the computer to reset, just as if the reset button had been pressed, after a while though the problem disappeared. Now the summer months are upon us again the problem is back, and since I've moved into an attic room the problem is even worse, this leads me to believe that overheating is causing the problem, is this diagnosis correct?
Here are my specs:
AMD Athlon XP 3000+ 2.16 GHz
I also checked some of the readings in BIOS:
System Temperature : 35°C (95°F)
CPU Temperature : 51°C (123°F)
System Fan : 0 RPM
CPU Fan : 4,326 RPM
Are these temperatures too high? I'm also concerned about the system fan not spinning. I'm not too hot (no pun intended) on computer hardware so could someone help me out on this one? If it turns out that the computer is overheating then what should I do to stop it?
Sorry about the mammoth post guys, hope someone can help.
