Is my Motherboard overheating ?

Hi guys,
I've got an (very) old PC from 2008. After I dropped it somewhere for about 2 years or so, yesterday when  my laptop broke, I remembered that I had this old rig.  So I took it out and tried to boot from a linux live USB and to my surprise it worked like a charm. 
 
However after a while I went on Youtube to watch some videos when suddenly it froze, completely. No mouse movement, no keyboard...nothing. First I thought the CPU might have been the culprit but no...then I checked the RAM (from the BIOS) it seems to be fine too. Then I installed Windows 7 on it. Downloaded SpeedFan and HWMonitor and went on Youtube again, while watching videos I noticed that one of the temperatures was constantly increasing, from 38 to over 60 and then the PC froze again at about 62. I believe it is the motherboards temperature since HWMonitor shows it as Motherboard temperature.  Both SpeedFan and HWMonitor show the same temperatures so I guess the sensors are working fine.
 
So my question is could an overheating mobo cause a PC to freeze just like that or am I just guessing wrong? And if yes, is it somehow possible to prevent themobo from overheating or I need to run the fans at 100 just like I am right now?
 
HP Compaq, Intel dual core 3.0. 2 GB RAM. 40GB HDD (internal), 250 GB (external, from broken laptop).
Thanks in advance.

Do you have a valid license for this Win 7 Ultimate  install?

 

The max operating for that Pentium D is 62.5 Celsius...I suspect that installing non-legitimate version of Win 7 Ultimate is not the right step for it.

 

I know that 2GB RAM would not give the system much resource-power, even if it were the 32-bit version.

 

Since you just installed the O/S...I see no indication that any component is overheating.

No, it's a cracked version. Here where I live I wouldn't be able to get a license for it even if I had the money to pay for it (which I don't because I work for about 200$ a month). Wouldn't pay for it even if I had the money though because I don't need it. I'd buy a cheaper version of windows if I had to. :) As a side note: You see the second hdd there? I've got a linux distro on it and the same stalling (freezing) happens with that too.

After I did some test today, I too believe that overheating is not the problem because I caught it freezing  even at 40 degrees Celsius.  Heat is involved in a way however. Since when I fired up all the fans at full speed I could watch some videos till the end and no freezing.

Could the little amount of video memory be the cause of this happening?

 

 

I know that 2GB RAM would not give the system much resource-power, even if it were the 32-bit version.

Like I said, the same thing happens when I boot from Lubuntu. So the RAM is not the problem I guess. I did a memory diagnostics too. No errors in came up.

 

Thanks for the reply.

Sorry, but we won't be able to assist you in this forum with a cracked version of Windows.  Such is against forum rules and policies.

 

"No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user.

As for your problems with your linux install...the BC Linux & Unix Forum may be able to offer some assistance in that area.

...come at me all bossy and stuff. 

You could just have told me it's against the rules of this site and I'd have deleted/removed the post myself.

 

Frankly speaking, I'm not that interested in a forum where I get 2 answers in over 2 days either. Event though You personally seemed to be a pro in this field. 

 

So, take it easy and have a nice one. Mr. Louis. ;)

As far as I know normal members do not have the ability to delete posts themselves. Louis did nothing wrong by closing that topic.

Bleeping Computer is a very busy forum, and as such your reply might be overlooked. Could also mean that nobody knows the answer to your questions.

Oh, OK. Didn't know that user can't delete their posts! And yes, I know it's my fault for not reading the rules and I apologize for it but the way Mr. Luis answered to me ...I don't know, it came over like he's looking down on me for not having the money westerns have to pay for a Windows license. 

 

Feel free to close/lock or whatever your thing is this post too. It was never my intention to troll or harass other members around here.

 

Thank You.
