Thread: Computer Stops

  1. #1

    Default Computer Stops

    Hi, after spending time on my computer, randomly it stops working. the cdrom and cdrw become inactive, the monitor cannot get a signal, and the only way out is switching off at the wall. ctrl-alt-del, and the restart button don't work. both lights stay on on the front of the computer. then the computer will not work again for another 45 mins without the same thing occurring.

    could this be an overheating problem? power source? is there a cpu temp monitor out there i can download? HELP!

    Looks suspiciously like a thermal problem. Have a look though the grille at the back of the power supply and see if that fan is going. A dead fan on the CPU might cause a terminal stoppage. :-(

    If the PSU fan is OK, tweak'e's Sunday news gives a link for Cpu Cool temeperature monitoring programme.
