Having problems with your Intel Pentium 4, 2.8 GHz (bx80546pg2800e) Boxed Processor Upgrade ?

Processor overheating hi my computer is starting up ok then after 30 seconds keeps shutting down.my processor fan is working but processor is very hot to the touch. please help as i don't know if the processor is broken or is something less drastic.


Answers :

I had the same issue - computer would work until the CPU got too hot and would just turn off - no shut down - I took the computer apart and found that dust had built up in the heat sink and there was absolutely no air flow - I used a small screwdriver and a vacuum cleaner to **** the debris out from around the fan and heat sink and the computer seems to run fine now - I know this a simple solution to what may prove to me a more complex problem but it seemed to work for me - good luck
