Sorry for hijacking this thread but I have a similar problem. For the past month I've noticed my WinXP desktop will shut down without warning. I ran Speccy in startup to keep a check on temperatures, I also have HWMonitor which shows the same temperature.

 

System Spec:

 

Operating System
Windows XP Professional 32-bit SP3

CPU
AMD Phenom II X4 955 76 °C
Deneb 45nm Technology

RAM
4.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 669MHz (9-9-9-28)

Motherboard
Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. GA-MA790XT-UD4P (Socket M2) 36 °C

Graphics
DELL IN2010N (1360x768@60Hz)
4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 (Gigabyte) 31 °C

 

Now when the CPU temperature gets to 80 °C it changes to a dark red. I've kept an eye on the temperature and it does creep up even though there is nothing running. Yesterday I saw it went to 117 °C.

 

Now my system 6 years old so I bought some CPU thermal compound not the Artic Silver. Over the weekend I de-dusted the unit and applied the thermal compound. On startup the CPU temperature is running exactly the same and it still shuts down.

 

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Check to make sure you have ample air flow. I messed around with my fans and found that I had a third one that was blowing air back in the case, raising my temps. Just one check to check into; also look up proper air flow within your system. It should flow front to back and not get pushed back in the case.

I remember I joined the OverClockers forum shortly after I bought my system of them. I've asked the same question on there.

I've noticed that Speccy has stopped reponding with a Cannot initialize SPC dll error you can Google this but I don't see any solution. I've reinstalled it but it still shows the same error on CPU, RAM, Motherboard and Graphics. I've done a search for cpu.dll but nothing shows. I've search my laptop for the same file but nothing shows but that Speccy works as it should.

 

My Avast antivirus has stopped responding as well I've done a repair but it still won't start or scan anything.

 

As for the cooling problem its running at 53 °C after lowering the overclocking in the BIOS, but its been overclocked for the past 6 years without a problem.

Your CPU maximum operating temperature are 55C - 62C

Your CPU VCore should be around 0.85V - 1.4V.

 

If you cannot get your temperature drop down, then i highly suggest you buy a new cooler.

FWIW:  The Speccy thing...happens and I can't really say why it happens.  I could guess that maybe running chkdsk /r would help it, but that would be just a wild guess why some systems run into this situation

I ran a full scandisk on startup.

I uninstall Avast with the special avastunistall in safemode and reinstalled Avast but it still won't show.
