a little more detail? system specs, current cooling, and temps? and what its doing? You can use something like CPUID to monitor all your temps.

Hi ankur16.

I suggest we do a little bit more with your processor.

First off a little warning:

Warning: Anytime any work is done inside the computer, make sure that you are grounded to the computer before and at all times while you are working on the inside of the computers case.

Permanent damage can result from static electricity discharge or ESD's which is found on the human body.

Gain access to your processor, remove the heat sink by uncliping the clip which holds it down on the motherboards processor socket. Caution: Be sure to use a tool which will not slip and cause permanent damage to the motherboard.

Once the processor and heat sink assembly have been removed, make sure there is no dust or lint inside the fins of the heat sink.

Purchase a tube of thermal compound paste this can be found at Radio Shack or Staples stores, or purchased on line. (may also be called Heat sink compound )

Clean the bottom of the heat sink which once made contact with the processor, remove any old crusty dried up grease if there is any.

If there is only a rubber looking thermal pad, carefully remove it, these pads are generic and don't adequately transfer heat!

Remove any old thermal paste off of the processor, please do this with as little pressure as possible so as not to stress the motherboard, you can use isopropyl alcohol 70% to remove the old paste, alcohol evaporates very quickly so drying time is instant.

Use a lint free (clean) rag to do this procedure.

Once the processor and heat sink are cleaned, apply a bead of thermal compound to the top of the processor making sure to apply enough to cover the chip, but not make a mess all over the entire processor's body.

Reinstall the heat sink on the processor slot, again be careful not to slip and damage the motherboard with the tool used. Make sure the heat sink is fully seated on top of the processor and is secured properly.

And that is it, recheck your temps.

Hello .

@ Bruce

I appreciate your input.No offense , but can we have a thorough diagnosis before going that extreme.Do you know any software that can diagnose my computer temperature, voltage etc other than Speedfan.


@ the_patriot09

CPUID shows the configuration and core voltage , not CPU temperature.

Anyways,
mobo-p4145 intel 845 chipset
intel celeron 2400MHZ
2 case fans

CPUID makes softwared called HWMonitor you can download and use here http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php post the temps you get back up here. However, if the temps are to high, doing what Mr. Bruce suggested would be my next step as well.

Have you tried heat sink and heat sink paste to maintain your PC heats?

I would do as mr. bruce tells you tho, just make sure to follow the intrustion and be carefull.
Also, you should post your specs for a topic like this. It allows other users to give you more specific answers...
