Looks like the CPU heat sink has been gathering dust, rendering the cpu cooling setup ineffective. It needs better ventilation.

Have a look at this thread.

Options:

+ Clean the CPU Heatsink
++ Better ventilation for the PC Case
+++ Add fresh thermal paste
++++ Better CPU Cooler

i have dusted the heatsink and i think i properly applied the thermal paste..i have encountered the problem while tinkering the fan..when the fan is vertical it slows down and when it is placed horizontally it goes the normal speed.so for now i placed my cpu horizontal..can i have your say about this?maybe i should get i new fan?coz i have cleaned the fan.

The fan should only mount one way
Any way of posting a picture of what you did?

I am still trying to picture in my mind what you just said
Nothing good comes to mind

"horizontally to the ground" means the CD drive is facing up, correct?
Where is the power supply fan, on the back, discharging to??

I believe he means he set the case on its side with the motherboard closest to the floor, like you would if you were preforming maintence on it.
