I have a Pro Series Proteva computer thats about 8 years old and the problem i'm having is that it starts to make noise that sounds like it should but about 3 times louder, then at some point the monitor turns off like the power saver does then 2 seconds later the computer turns off as if the power went out. If anyone know's of a possible cause then please help me. :thumbsup:

Take the cover off the computer and check to see if any of the fans are loose. This includes the CPU Fan make sure that it is not loose but that it is still on the processor, if you decide to remove the fan and heat sink make sure you do not clean off the white silicone gooey stuff it is there for heat transfer

If you take off the fan on the processor you must clean off the old, dry paste on both the processor and the heat sink and replace the thermal paste.

If you do not your processor will be destroyed as soon as you turn the computer on.

This problem can be caused either by a heat problem or a failing power supply. Both can be checked using SensorsView Pro.

Allowable voltage ranges:

+3.3: 3.135V to 3.465v
+5: 4.75V to 5.25V
+12: 11.4V to 12.6V

The processor temperature should stay below 60C.

You should also check if any part of the computer is damaged or burned, that sometimes causes computers to shutdown. I had a very old computer and one day it automatically shut down and i couldn't turn it on again. When i took off the cover of the computer i found out that RAM and a bit of the motherboard was burned. Therefore I needed a new computer.
