, that is common on forums and sometimes makes you look like your just copying other users to get the post count up even when you are not
! A simple way to solve this is to check if another member is posting by looking at the bottom of the topic and if a member name is in italics
, it means they are posting. If they are posting, wait until they have posted and see what they posted. If it was the same thing, either leave it or back up and support what they have to say. Sorry to get off-topic!
, I would say that the most likely problem is dust build-up. You should clean out your computer every 3 months or so, to make sure that it is free from dust. Also, make sure that areas surrounding your PC are cleaned from dust aswell. This will stop the amount dust from going into your PC via the intake fans. Another thing that you can do is the put a thin cloth that isn't thick, over the intake hole of your PC as this can help prevent dust from getting into your PC by filtering it. If your PC has lots of dust build-up, especially over the CPU and the heatsink, this can trap heat over the CPU and cause it to heat up quicker and overheat it aswell. If your CPU is constantly being overheated, it can cause your PC to turn off randomly, shorten the life of your CPU, cause performance problems and also damage your motherboard aswell as the chance of burning components in your PC.
Also, just for reference, this is a tutorial we have on BC about cleaning your computer from dust, found here
