I've just got back from university and found my PC absolutely sweating it's nuts off - i'm trying to type this quick to shut it down again before im risking more damage but here's how it went: It's spec is this: SN85G4V2 Sk754 A64 clawhammer 3400+ 1Gb corsair RAM 1 * 74Gb raptor 1 * 250Gb maxtor drive hmmm, dont think there's much else... I left the PC running all night last night (not unusual), it's a shuttle machine but I have fitted an extra fan and have Cool'n'Quiet installed and working so it runs coolish (not half as cool as desktop machines). I came home just a minute ago and found it absolutely boiling it's self - the I touched MSN messanger and got a Blue screen of death - I touched the heatsink attached to the CPU on the rear and nearly burnt my fingers. I instantly went into bios and saw a 94C reading from the CPU and the whole case was like a heater. I turned it off, took of the case asap and took it outside for a cool off period. I've now plugged it back in, everythings working fine but it seems to be running extremely warm! CPU temp is now 83C and rising (0% CPU usage). What can I do?! I've got a major major assignment in for uni tomorrow and I NEED my PC. It's been reliable for my 2 years here and NOW, on a night like tonight, it decides to go boobies up. Is this a software problem? would a windows reinstall possibly work? How can i narrow it down to hardware/software? I'm just about to sit in the bios and see what the temps do in there - that should be absolute 0% CPU right? Thanks!!!
