\015 I have a dell 9400 and it seems to keep overheating particularly when i\015\012play games like farmville(sorry!!!)the cpu goes up to 100% and\015\012everything freezes. My local computer man cleaned it out of all the\015\012fluff and reloaded windows and took off mcafee and put on avg but to no\015\012avail.He thought problem was softare related\015\012 Also does this when I am watching dvds or downloaded programmes.\015\012I ran a diagnostics before and it said that the video fan was not\015\012reaching required RPM and that the L1/L2 cache microprocessor dirty\015\012cache reads test.\015\012Cannot get this on diagnostics anymore- actually don't know if my\015\012diagnostics is working properly any more because after all the memory\015\012tests- which are fine, it doesn't check the rest.\015\012Grateful for any help\015

Working on a dell dimension 5150. it posts then states hardrive error, then states an alert about some thermal error(only stated this on post the first time i turned ti on) then shortly after it turns off. i can get into bios but as i look for temp readings it shuts off, doesnt give em much time to look around. I think maybe an overheating issue is involved but any insight would be nice. thnx
