Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?

I have a Gateway Profile 5.5 all-in-one PC. A few

\015 I have a Gateway Profile 5.5 all-in-one PC. A few months ago the computer shut down with a fan failure message. I opened up the PC and cleaned out the microprocessor heat sink which was clogged up with lint/dust. The PC ran great for a while and then started shutting down after a random amount of time. Now I can't power it up. About 5 or 10 seconds after pressing the power button, it shuts down. I'm going to try and monitor the power supply voltage when I turn it on to see if the supply is working (it looks OK when I unplug the PC and measure the output voltage). Any other ideas? Has anyone had a microprocessor die from overheating? Are there any common failures with the Profile 5.5?\015

Answers :

Personally I'd try applying some more thermal paste to the top of the processor.
