CPU was shutdown due to a thermal event (Overheating)


Friends,

I have a Intel 845GV motherboard with 2.4 GHz processor.
I have Windows XP.

After sometime after booting, the system automatically shuts down and tells that:

"The CPU was previously shutdown due to a thermal event(overheating)
Service the unit right away to resolve this"


I am not sure what i have to do now.
Is there any way to service it myself?
Or, is there any way to fix that one?

Oh! My system is shutting down............
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGH

Thank You,
Paramesh.

Visual checks:

Make sure the CPU fan is operating. If there are any other chip fans on the motherboard, make sure they are operating.

Make sure the case fan(s) is/are working and that there is no obstruction to the airflow into and out of the case. (It is sometimes recommended that you do not try to operate for extended periods of time without the case covers in place.)

Regards,

Dave

Re: CPU was shutdown due to a thermal event(Overheating)


Yeah. I checked out the fans, and all of them are working.
I am not even working fo 30 minutes, and after that the CPU was shutdown.

And when i try again, it does like that 4 or 5 times instantaneously, and then another 30 minutes and shuts down again....

Oh. NOOO.
Not again......
Rebootin..................

Re: CPU was shutdown due to a thermal event(Overheating)


Check your CPU's heat sink. It may have loosened so your not getting proper cooling. You might also want to put new thermal paste or a pad on your CPU to make sure it has good contact.

Some systems let you monitor you temps either in BIOS or through a program. If you have something like this, take a look at your system temps.

Re: CPU was shutdown due to a thermal event(Overheating)


Install an app like AIDA or something similar that may have come with your motherboard to monitor the temps of the CPU and motherboard along with the rpm of your fan.

Also, what type of heatsink/fan do you have and what is the ambient temp of the room where the computer operates?

Re: CPU was shutdown due to a thermal event(Overheating)


Eventhough the room where my PC is, is nearly always closed, i.e. windows and door closed, I still find a lot of dust if I open up my PC after 6 - 9 months.

Even with the A/C on, the ionizer on, and the extractor on when I am puffing away, the insides of my PC can get very dusty, especially where the fans are.

When I get the occasional BSOD, I know it's time to open her up and do some spring cleaning.

Also, as suggested, you should go to your Mainboard / Motherboard website, and search for the utility programs that they offer to monitor cpu / case temperatures. This is the first thing I get when I purchase a new PC, because everything about the motherboard (like model no.) is still fresh in my mind and it's easy to search for online.

How to remove dust collected in the CPU fan / heatsink is not complicated, however you will be wise to not rush it... I carefully remove everything, piece by piece and suck the dust out with a vacuum cleaner, then use a brush to clean the hard to reach places in the fan blades and heat sink before putting it all back.

Re: CPU was shutdown due to a thermal event(Overheating)


I've had pretty good luck by installing filters on the case. You can buy custom fan filters for under $10 but I'm cheap. I just use fish filter material (or you can use A/C filters) and cut out the size you need.

If you're lazy you can just tape it to the case where the air enters, or you can make a custom frame for it. My case has two fan holes in the back where the air enters (I don't have extra fans installed) so it's easy to put a filter on it. If your case is designed to suck in air from the front then you'll have to remove the plastic front cover.

Re: CPU was shutdown due to a thermal event(Overheating)


Thank you very much friends.

It seems to be a RAM problem.
But I'm not sure.

Re: CPU was shutdown due to a thermal event(Overheating)


The problem was with the power pin connecting to the motherboard.
It was not proper, and is too hot, which caused all these problems.

After that was over, the broadband connection stopped working.
The ISP provider said that there was some port problem, and now(from this instant) the problem has been rectified, and I'm back to normal.

Thank you for all your help friends.
Regards,
Paramesh.
