Emachines T2958 overheating and shutting down

\015 I get this message and an alarm goes off when i turn on my pc ... also it shuts down after a short time ... can you help?\015

Answers :

Your computer is automatically shutting down to prevent damage to the CPU because it is getting too hot. This can be caused due to a malfunction fan, heatsink, or dirt inside the CPU.

Remove the side cover of the CPU. Using a can of air (which can be purchased at most electronics departments), blow out any dust inside the case, paying specific attention to the fan and the heatsink mounting the CPU. Also blow out all vents and anywhere else you see dust. Do not shake the can of air and keep it as level as possible. If you do not have a can of air available, an air compressor will work. Alternatively, you may vacuum the dust up with the hose of a vacuum cleaner but do not use any attachment with brushes on it.

If the inside is relatively dust free, check to make sure all the fans are functioning properly. If the one on the CPU is not, then that fan will have to be replaced.

And one more thing, please give this solution a fixya rating. Thanks! :c)
