I7 2600K hitting over 90 Celsius under load

Q: I7 2600K hitting over 90 Celsius under load

Hi all I m a D designer and have recently experienced a few BSODs whilst rendering the cause of which seems to be the USB drivers according to the minidumps However I have also started to notice that my CPU temps are I7 Celsius under hitting 2600K load over 90 going through the roof caught I7 2600K hitting over 90 Celsius under load my attention when it hit degrees now it s hitting degrees under load - idle I have always aimed to keep the temps below I7 2600K hitting over 90 Celsius under load and have only really strayed slightly above this on particularly warm days so I m a little concerned that something may have I7 2600K hitting over 90 Celsius under load failed on my PC Setup details are i K professionally overclocked to GHz CPU fan seems to max at rpm shouldn t this go higher Asus P Z -V Mobo Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro mm Apache Black chassis fan x I ve had this PC for over years and never had this problem before I was inclined to think that the readings were inaccurate but both CoreTemp and the Asus monitoring software show the same temps I m going to lower the overclock in the meantime but would love some help figuring out why this may be occurring If you d like any further info please let me know Thanks in advance nbsp

Preferred Solution: I7 2600K hitting over 90 Celsius under load

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Might be worth checking the CPU's thermal compound. The thermal bond between CPU and cooler may be weakening. If the fans blades are not clean, they will not spin as fast due to restriction of air flow across the surface of the blade.

I used RV042 10/100 4-Port VPN Router. I've configured the dual WAN, and enable Load Balancing for faster internet. But if I accessed my IP Address is always chaging? How can I setup the router sticking to just one IP address?

A:How to "Load Balance" without changing the IP?

Let me preface by saying....taking two circuits and using them at the same time, even with protocol management from the LB is most likely not worth the effort.

But for the sake of the argument, the first hurdle you have is that both circuits need to have static IPs. What type of connections are they?

Can anyone help me figure this out?

My new GTX 670 is regularly hitting 88%-99% load when running DirectX based games & benchmarks, causing it to quickly overheat and "emergency shutdown" my (64bit) Win7 PC after about 10 minutes.

But if I use OpenGL, the GPU load (via "GPU-Z") is closer to about 8% (but doesn't look as good.)

I discovered I can keep the load below 70% by setting games to "limit the refresh rate to 120MHz", but 70% is still WAAAAY too high.

Anyone have any idea why DirectX (v11) might be taxing my GPU so badly? Thx

A:70% GPU load under DirectX but 8% under OpenGL?

Because it's supposed to? Nothing is wrong with 70% if temperatures are okay, like 90*C range.
You can turn up fan speed or cap your framerate until temperatures are decent otherwise.

So I'm running two XFX HD 5770's at 850/1200 mhz, 85% fan speed. Air flow is pretty decent, although the PSU sits a little close to the bottom card. While gaming I'll hit up to 76-77C but never over 80C. I've read a few posts and reviews and heard that these cards can run sub-90C fine, but a lot of these included users running their fan speeds at like 60% or below.

My question is : Is reaching almost 80C at 85% fan speed too high? Is it safe to run this for 3-5 hours a day/ 7 days a week?

Thanks for any info/help you can give

A:CF 5770 load temps

If your cards are right next to each other then yeah, they will run pretty hot.

It's pretty common to see GPUs running at 80-90C and they're designed to take that kind of temperature anyway, wouldn't worry about it too much if I were you. 3-5 hours a day isn't really that much compared to bitcoin miners who run 24/7.

My daughter have a laptop that she was trying to connect her son Leapfrog to it. She it connected overnight.

When I turn laptop on I can hit the [ESC] and it will take me to the black screen "Startup Menu." It won't let me do anything else but go to the black screen with the cursor. I tried to reformat the laptop but can't seem to get pass the black screen.

A:Can't get laptop to load (black screen with cursor)

Hello sir,
Could you give us some more details such as the OS, the exact process/incident after which the problem arose, and all the activities on the laptop since the Leapfrog connection?

For one, it could be plain hardware failure.
Assuming you have Windows 7 installed, have you tried performing a Startup Repair using the Windows 7 disk?
Once you power on the laptop, keep pressing 'F8' till you reach the "Advanced Boot Menu". Select Safe Mode, and see if you can boot into Windows. If you can get to the desktop, perform a malware scan.

If it doesn't help, contact your vendor's or HP's customer support/technical assistance.

Hope this helps.

A:I think my video card is overheating. HD 6850 70-75 degrees celsius

No, that is not too hot... though I would increase the cooling options, if it were mine... which it seems you have already done. What you report at 70 - 75 C is common, and should not put additional risk of failure. But that much heat is not good over time... and I would add special directed cooling.
However, since it is shutting down, that card may be reaching the end of its useful product life. If still under warranty, contact the maker or the seller for their opinions. It may be that the card is defective. Look to see if your motherboard manufacturer offers any ideas on their website for that model.
It may be that your motherboard itself is the weak link.

I currently own main sig rig with an Intel i7 950 CPU. I'm planning on building a second gaming rig for the kids. Either a i5 2500K or i7 2600K.

I'm wondering should I switch the i7 950 for either of those two?

The i5 2500K seems to be as good i7 2600K for gaming but adds hyper threading for applications at $100 more. Is it really worth it?

Would the i5 2500K be better than the i7 950?

Would the i7 2600K be better than the i7 950?

I'm just not sure. Any suggestions or comments?

A:Intel i7-950 vs i5-2500K vs i7-2600K

If you do heavily threaded processes (like video encoding or the like) then I'd say the 2600K is worth it to you. If you rarely do those types of things I'd say build with a 2500K and give the kids the 950. Also, make sure you get a decent aftermarket CPU cooler and once you have everything running stably give it a bit of an OC for a pleasant surprise - this is coming from someone who has been against overclocking for the last few years. I've been more interested in stability than anything else, but there's just no way these chips were not meant for this. Prior to getting a 2600K myself I was on an i7 930 and I really wasn't expecting a performance increase due to several of the things I had read from other people. Turns out there's no way any of these people have spent an extended amount of time with both and come to that conclusion. It's been a very pronounced performance gain after switching to the 2600K for me and I was already using some pretty solid GPUs.

Hi Guys,

Got very good inputs from the forum on setting up my network..and its working fine now.

Got one more issue where I need inputs from experts for the best way to do it.

I have got a webserver running behind a router. Now I am planning to add redundancy by taking another static IP from other ISP.

And I wish to balance my incoming load between two connections.

What would be the best way to reach this goal with minimum cosyt involved and best security.

Do I add multiple NIC card on the websers, would that help

Or is it possible to connect two router to same switch.

or would HA proxy be of any help n addition to something above.

Any pointers to a good site or tutorial would also be gr8


A:1 Webserver, 2 ISP static IPs, load balancing.. how to do it?

yes, this can work with (2x) nic's in the webserver


isp#1=== webserver === isp#2


I wish to balance my incoming load between two connections.Click to expand...

is not trivial.
As shown, the first connection (let's assume it's #1) will get the default route in your
routing table (that's in the webserver, not a router or switch). The default route is important & solves the question

where do I send the data when I don't know the IP address?
It's the DNS that does this and it will be routed to the default gateway
(see route print).

Adding a router +- a switch or two do not solve the problem.

The presence of isp#2 will only add a specific route for that ISPs gateway.
If isp#1 gateway is at
isp#2 gateway is at
your webserver is at
then the routing table might well look like


Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric [COLOR="Blue"][/COLOR] 20 1
[COLOR="Blue"][/COLOR] [COLOR="Blue"][/COLOR] 20
[COLOR="Red"][/COLOR] [COLOR="Red"][/COLOR] [COLOR="Red"][/COLOR] 20 20 20 20 1
Default Gateway:
the -> is the default for all unknown traffic
the -> would be all local traffic on that nic
and -> would be local traffic for the 10.1.2.* nic.

THERE IS NO WAY to round-robin requestes between the
192.168.0.* connection and the 10.1.2.* connection

Load Balancing is frequently done by
registring a domain name
adding two more more DNS servers for that domain
and then choosing a round-robin scheduling technique to provide a different one to every dns request.
Using as an example, there are FOUR dns servers
Domain servers in listed order: ==> ==> ==> ==>

Good guess; common symptom across multiple devices implies something higher up in the network.
I suspect you have a port problem for port 443, secured http (HTTPS://)

Using a wired connection to your router, launch a browser and enter the router IP address as if it were a URL. This will access the router config page but should prompt for the admin/pwd.

Now you need the Admin-id, password and the IP address of your router, all of which are make/model dependent - - Please post the name/model number of your router so we can continue . . .

I have been holding off on building a new system until the release of Bulldozer so I can make my final decision based upon actual comparative data between AMD's newest release and the Intel offerings. But until we know actual benchmarks from released Bulldozer chips it is impossible to say. My guess is it might meet and possibly even surpass 2500 but not the i7 2600.

Since I don't have any work to do on it yet, I decided to install a game I recently got into - League of Legends - but the problem is, I cannot play. When I start up the game, I get the error in the title... "Could not load direct3d" I have no idea what's going on and I would love some help on the issue.

Here is my DxDiag if needed:

Please and Thank You!

A:'Could not load direct3d' error for League of Legends

What kind of GPU do you have? Because you're running DirectX 11 and judging by how old all you're other components are I doubt you're GPU supports DX11. Look up the specifications of w/e card it is you have, and it should say what DX it supports.

Hi all,

I'm looking for a case for a new gaming rig I'm building, which would also be used for other computer work such as video editing. The CPU will be the Intel 2400K. The case I've been reading great reviews about is the Coolermaster HAF X. I especially like it for its side window, features, quiet fans (according to reviews) and capacity (eg for long graphic cards, big coolers, etc). But this case was released around a year ago so I'm wondering if this is has sufficient airflow for an overclocked 2600K. The reviews I read all say it has excellent cooling but that would have been tested using the CPU's and components available at that time which probably run at different temperatures as today's components. What tower cases are other people on this forum using for their 2600K setups? Or are there any newer cases I should be looking at?


A:What case for Intel 2600K rig?

What other components you got in there? What's your budget?

The HAF X is an excellent case but there are plenty of other options as well. The HAF 932 is no slouch either at about $30 cheaper. You could even do with a good mid tower chassis like the Antec 900, CM 690 II, Thermaltake V9, etc.

Other than just room, airflow and cooling cases are also about aesthetic appeal. Take a look at some cases on and find one that best suits your taste.

Note: There are some excellent case reviews here at Techspot. Don't forget to checkout those articles before you make your choice.

A:My Acer Aspire 5536 won't load Vista

Have you left any CD/DVD's in the drive or a USB flash drive inserted? if so remove them and try again. If you have a card reader check there is nothing in it and if a blank is fitted make sure it is properly inserted.

Will it boot from the OS disc?

Unfortunately, if this is not the case, your hard drive has probably failed. Run this diagnostic from the hard drive manufacturer. You will need to use another PC to download the ISO and burn it to a disk.

Identify the make of your hard drive and then use one of the links below to get the manufacturers diagnostic for ISO CD. Burn the image file to a CD, boot the PC with the disc in the drive and run the diagnostics. You first need to set the CD drive to 1st in the boot order in the Bios setup.

If you do not have an image burner use this free software to make the CD.




Seagate, Maxtor & Quantum:

Western Digital:


Toshiba Fujitsu:

Please provide the model number of your drive if it is Toshiba Fujitsu for further instructions, this does not run on Windows 7. I would suggest the use of the diagnostics from the Seagate link as this will work on all makes of drive and on any OS.Click to expand...

Im about to buy a Intel Core i7-2600K 3.40GHz (Sandybridge) Socket LGA1155 Processor, can anyone recomend a good mainboard for around 150 to pair with this CPU? I need the board be compatable with my Corsair TX650 PSU and fit in my Antec 900 case.

A:£150 motherboard for Core i7-2600K

Any LGA1155 board (server aside) will be compatible with the chassis and the PSU.
Depending upon what level of connectivity and build quality you want, 150 covers just about every mainstream offering.
Asus P67 Sabertooth . Practically bulletproof. 5 year warranty
Asus P8Z68-V PRO : If you like the idea of being able to run integrated graphics (handy if you need to sell your graphics card before upgrading to a new one).
To be honest, unless you're planning on cramming the chassis with every peripheral known to man, then you need not spend ~150 .
MSI P67A-GD53 (B3) -104. Offers just about everything with the exception of eSATA and a USB3.0 header ( which the Antec doesn't use in any case). It still offers USB3.0 through the rear I/O. If you want the USB3.0 header for a future chassis that supports it then the MSI P67A-GD55 (B3) is 120.

Motherboard type: Gigabyte GA-P31-DS3L
it has 4 memory slots (2 red and 2 yellow)

I had 2x1G sticks of this type:
DIMM3: Mushkin 991529 (996529) 1 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM (5-5-5-18 @ 400 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz)

And recently bought a 2GB stick:
DIMM1: Samsung M3 78T5663QZ3-CF7 2 GB DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM (6-6-6-18 @ 400 MHz) (5-5-5-15 @ 333 MHz) (4-4-4-12 @ 266 MHz)

Tried to connect all 3 together in any possible way but my PC wouldn't start or
reboot before windows gets to load.
I tried to pull out the old 2x1GB sticks and just put the new 2GB one and it
worked perfectly.
Now i installed 1GB+2GB and it works great but
i bought the new stick in order to have 4GB total, not 3.

Any way i can fix this? maybe i'm doing something wrong?
or could it be a bios problem? my bios version is F8 (2 updates behind the latest version)

What Operating System are you running. I had this "buzzing" on a Dell Presario 530S desktop with Vista Home Premium, SP2 installed. I ran Windows Update over and over again to insure that all updates were installed and the buzzing stopped, as suddenly as it started. I did notice, that when the computer was off, I could still hear a faint buzz until I disconnected the speakers. After installing ALL the Windows Updates even this off buzzing stopped.

Lately I have been noticing that my computer started shutting down by itself alot I didnt know what the problem was and i kept using it Now it shuts off more then ever when I start up some processes which put a big load on the cpu I downloaded a few programs and all of them showed that my CPU temp reaches on all four cores and since it reaches the tjmax comp shuts down I let my comp cool and now i started it again and the idle cpu temp is in high s and so I am wondering what is the problem is my cpu dead I used it for more than a year i have the stock heatsink and I know for sure there was that thermal compound applied however that silver thing is called So if anyone knows what might be wrong with it please let hitting any CPU Core i7 920 100C, tips? me kno Thank you processor i ghz ram gb ddr graphics geforce gtx nbsp

A:Core i7 920 CPU hitting 100C, any tips?

The first thing I would check is whether or not the cpu cooler fan is running. If it is, I would recommend removing the stock cooler and reapplying thermal compound, you will need to clean both the cpu plate and bottom of the cooler first. I've always had good luck with Tuniq thermal paste, but any brand name thermal paste should work.

If those temperature readings are correct you really don't want to run the system for any extended period of time (especially under load) until you resolve this problem.

Hey guys, I'm going to get a Core i7 2600k for my new gaming build but I'm unsure about how the turbo-mode is affected by overclocking. The stock speed of this processor is 3.4GHz which goes up to 3.8GHz with turbo-mode.

If I overclock it to 4.4GHz does this mean that it will run at 3.4GHz with turbo-mode going up to 4.4GHz? Or will it run at 4.4GHz all the time?

Thanks in advance!

A:How is turbo-mode affected by overclocking the 2600k?

From my experience with the previous Generation, if you overclock with turbo on it just increases the turbo auto clock, so turn it off, and control everything manually to get the overclock you desire.

Re: Computer turns on but does not boot after new PSU installation.

Nevermind guys, I just fixed it myself. What was wrong was that there was an 8 pin power connector not plugged into the motherboard, as my old power supply had a 4 pin power connector, and I had automatically assumed I didn't have to plug anything into it. There was a little platelet, covering the rest of the 4 pins so I didn't know I had something to plug in there.
Have this exact same problem but only have a 4 pin connecter and not another one.

I was wondering if there are video cards that specialize in taking more load off the cpu than others. I have heard nvidia cards are better at this than ati. Any opinions?

A:Any specific GPU that takes more load off CPU?

If you think about it, graphics cards specialize and do all the graphics work, while the CPU will do everything else. It would be extremely inefficient for the CPU to try and process the GPU's load, and incredibly difficult to make it work vice versa.

There are physX cards, which really don't help a whole lot, are rare to find now, and were expensive.
NVidia cards also support using a GPU as a physX card.
Not very useful IMO,

I am currently using my 7300 gs. Could it be my power supply is faulty and i cant play any games?

Hey,i think this is posted in the right forum,if not i apologize.I turned on my hp g60-214em this morning and was working fine until it suddenly turned of.I tried turning it back on,and while it turns on in that the power comes on,the screen stays black,and i cant seem to do anythng.The disc drive does not open,and at first it made a crackling sound after a while when it was turned on,but now it dosent make that sound.From what i have read else where i think it could be a motherboard problem but im limited in my knowledge on these matters.I do have insuranc but am back at uni in 2 weeks and really could do with this problem being sorted soon,the last time i sent them my laptop they took ages,Thank you,and ideas or advice would be appreciated

A:Laptop wont load up

Well the first thing is, if its under warranty then sending it back is all you can..any attempt at fixing it and you void the warranty...

That said a laptop isnt user diagnosable, it either works or it doesnt..

How long have you had the laptop..

Did it go back for the same fault before

Hey everyone,

I would like to find out how much power would be sufficient for my computer. I have the following.

NZXT Lexa Blackline Case
One Internal 500GB SATA HDD
ASUS P5Q PRO Motherboard
HD Radeon 4870 PCI-Express 2.0x16 Video card
HP External DVD lightscribe player
3 120MM case fans, 2 80(?) fans
Intel Dual Core Processor
Logitech 2.1 speaker system

The power supply I have at the moment is a Xilence 600W Gaming Edition Power supply.

Any insight on this prob. will be appreciated as always =]


A:Too much of a load?

unfortunately we often dont realize we need a larger ps until we have issues. its better to go big then skimp and risk damaging your components. 600 watts should be enough for that setup. Ive seen worse.

What the hell?

Why is my CPU temp shooting up to 228C when I OC my GPU to 547MHz / 792 MHz (VGA Mem)?? Or am I reading CPUID monitor wrong?


I just did a test, and found the CPU temp was only 53C Max this time...

What is going on? Is CPUID THAT unreliable?

A:CPU heated up to 228 deg C (load)?

Looks like a glitch in hwmonitor or something like that. If your cpu was 226 C, it would be completely fried, and you would have probably smelled something burning or melting. I mean, that's 2.28 times the boiling temperature of water.

This isn't my first system build, but it's my first one in 3 years.

I've got a i7 920 (D0) with stock cooling. I initially used the factory thermal paste, but was getting even higher temps. I just applied Arctic Silver 5 (using their instructions) and i'm still getting temps I consider pretty high compared to all my AMD builds in the past. I'm using a GB UD3R Mobo and my case is an Antec P180 which has pretty good airflow over the CPU.

I'm worried I've got a crap CPU? can I exchange it at Microcenter worse case scenario?

any suggestions?



p.s. I'm using Real Temp 3.00 to monitor the temp.

A:New build w/ i7 920 Running hot (55c idle and 91c load with Prime95)

Couple of questions, did you remove all of the old thermal paste before applying the new? and are you overclocking?

I haven't used Arctic Silver 5 before, but i've heard there is a cure time.

Just got a TC4200 tablet laptop and installed windows xp on it. Those of you familiar with the model know that it has no cd drive so I had to move the HDD to another laptop to do it so I know the install was good. However when putting the harddrive back in after the HP load screen but before it enters the xp load screen it goes to a black screen with a flashing white _ cursor similar to a dos command but with no text and I cannot type. I have no idea what the issue is nor how to solve it. Any suggestions?

As an extra note I tried the other laptops HDD and it gave the same results so that rules out the harddrive as an issue.

A:OS wont load Black screen

Matthew said:

You're probably missing essential device drivers for your laptop's hardware (which would have been installed had you ran the setup on your system). Use an external optical drive enclosure or a flash drive to install XP with the HDD in your system.

Alternatively, if you can get into Safe Mode you might be able to provide the system with drivers manually. You could also probably get away a repair install of XP, but this too would facilitate an optical or flash drive.Click to expand...

trying this nowish just gotta download sdk so I can use a flash drive as I dont have a external cd drive.

Second I do wonder if this is the correct solution as it never gets to the XP load screen so it doesnt have a chance to realize its wrong. Although dont get me wrong I hope its the problem as its an easy fix...

Are you talking about booting from the hard drive?
Age of the hard drive will make a difference... if it is a Hitachi, Maxtor, or TriGem drive it could be bad.
First test is to see if it will boot in <SAFE MODE> by pressing the <F8> button repeatedly once per second as soon as she presses the on button. If it works in safe mode, then she likely has a bad video graphics card or bad driver.

I just bought and installed a complete computer ( Asus P5Q with a Intel Core2Quad Q9550 2.83ghz).

I just booted up the computer and the CPU temperature in the BIOS is 99 celsius.

I didn't add any temperature paste on the CPU since there already was some paste on the heatsink but I had some problem to insert correcly the heatsink on the board.

Do you have any ideas of what could be the problem?
Do you think I should add more temperature paste on the CPU?

I will remove and put the heatsink back tomorrow as soon as I can.

A:CPU Temp at 99 celsius

It may be a defective motherboard... 99C would melt through the board. It wouldn't hurt to clean off all the thermal paste and apply a clean thin layer of fresh paste

I've recently purchased two sticks of PNY 1GB DDR PC3200 RAM. I did the system scan at and thats what it advised as my maximum.

I have an old Compaq Presario SQSXE1 which previously had 2 x 256 PC2100 running fine.

I installed the ram one at a time. Put in 1 gig, works fine. Put in the 2nd stick, Compaq screen comes on, the memory check in top right-hand corner goes up to 2gig, but then goes to a black screen and windows does not load.

I have tested both sticks individually in both slots, works every which way. I have put both sticks in at the same time and switched them, same results.

I'm not sure what information you need from me but I'll be happy to try and get it if I can. My knowledge of computers is unfortunately minuscule.

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

When I turn on my laptop everything is distorted, the normal load screen has some funky colors in the background and some pre-loading stuff (think it's the bios) looks like it's bleeding (the letters have some lines above and below them) then the screen goes black and the computer wont finish loading (no windows load up sound and when using keyboard hotkeys I can't turn off my computer). However, it will load up in safe mode (though, it has the same text distortions till it's fully loaded) I don't know how else to explain it.

I have a dell XPS m1710, nVidia graphics card (pretty sure it's 6800gts or something like that) and I've had a few problems with my display drivers already. However, this problem happened while trying to update from SP2 to SP3. I uninstalled SP3 and reinstalled SP2 but that didn't work.

Any ideas?

Hello everyone,
Basically my WD external makes a clicking sound when plugged into my system and prevents the system from booting up altogether. When I unplug the drive from USB, my computer boots up fine (mostly). It almost seems as if the external drive is not getting enough 'juice' to boot up completely but my new system with 650w PS does not include any power-draining peripherals.

Is it possible that my external is corrupt? Does the clicking always indicate failure? Could it indicate lack of power?

ALSO, the room in which I have the drive in tends to see a fair amount of dust plenty of which has made its way onto (and into) the MyBook casing. Is it possible for dust to get inside the casing and ruin the drive?

Thanks for any input.

A:WD external clicks upon bootup, prevents XP load

It can be n issue with the USB plug
Yes dust can cause lots of issues
It's best to test it in another computer to confirm

I have an HP Pavillion a1025cc. Our power flickered last Sunday and this computer decided not to work after that. It would power on go to Windows screen and then we would get a "boot disc error". I ended up getting a new hard drive and installing it. I then used the recovery discs to reload the original software. Everything appeared to go well. Then when I got to the "restart or turn off" choice of the recovery discs, regardless of which option I choose it will not completely load. The farthest I get is to "wait while windows loads" and then I get a flashing cursor on a black screen that will stay on for hours. I put the hard drive in another computer and it worked fine. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help.

I've built a new system for myself and for some reason it shuts down when I try to install Vista. I noticed that in the bios settings that the CPU is running at 92 Celsius, maybe that's causing the problem?

I tried re-seat the heatsink but that didn't work, it's still running at 92 Celsius although I didn't try installing Vista after that. Does bios tell the true CPU temperature?

Will I have to buy a new heatsink? But why isn't the original one working?


A:New system E8400 running at 92 Celsius and shuts down when istalling Vista

Sounds like your heatsink isn't on properly. It should be completely firm and not shake, wobble or jingle in any way.
Next it could be because you have no thermal compound on, so the heat isn't transferring correctly, but if you bought a brand new processor & heatsink, it comes with stuff pre-installed on the bottom.

Hey, recently I've been working on overclocking my CPU, and I noticed (both in task manager and in speed fan) that one of my cores (on my Q6600 quad core processor (65nm)) is always under an 80-90% load even when it's just idling, while the rest of the cores are under a very low load. I am running 64 bit vista. Also, it takes much longer for whichever core is under a heavier load to finish a stage (of calculations or whatever) in the multi-core prime 95 stress tester. I have closed all programs that I can, except for symantec anti-virus, which you cannot close all the way (at least to my knowledge). Is this normal? And if not, what can I do to fix it?

A:Core 2 Load

This is more of a Windows question, but here is a starting point:

Look into Task Manager. In the process list, look for any processes that are using up CPU cycles. That's the first place to look. If you DO see a process that is consuming large amounts of CPU time, you'll have found your culprit. If you haven't, there's a more serious issue, which could be anything from a bad driver to bad hardware. Post back here after checking it out.

Hey guys first time poster Won't Load PC Up here So I guess my dad was trying to install an external DVD burner and when he plugged it in and put the driver CD in the computer froze and after restarting now nothing will come up on the monitor The computer will turn on but the PC Won't Load Up light on the monitor remained orange as if no signal was coming in After waiting a day the computer would turn on with the keyboard plugged in but it was not responsive to the ps keyboard when it was on the desktop couldn t bring up the task manager or anything with ctrl alt delete and then when you plug in the usb mouse it freezes again and goes back to the no display I m thinkin maybe a USB problem or something The external burner is USB also Can t get it to go into safe mode I don t think it s taking input from the keyboard at all The lights on the motherboard and case turn on with the power but that s it PC with XP with SP I believe a pentium fairly new computer maybe years old or so Does anyone have any ideas about this nbsp

A:PC Won't Load Up

Does the system boot up properly when the external DVD drive is disconnected? You might have to disconnect all USB devices until the system loads windows and then go in and reconfigure each. I'm pretty sure you can't put the driver CD in the actual external drive until it's configured... that might be why it froze up. In order for those drives to work, certain drivers must be installed before they can be used so... put the CD in one of the computer's internal drives and try it again. If nothing works, the drive itself might be the problem.

Ok when my computer is on and under no load my video card is at 47, the second I turn on WoW, it's increasing to 80-91.. I'm using a ATI Radeon X850 series. I'm thinking it might be fan control but I have no idea how to access this. And i was using ATI Tray Tools.. and when i closed it.. it went back to 60 under load.. which is not great.. but okayish.. so I'm think ATI tray tools had some default fan settings .. and if anyone knows how to check the fan settings please help lol

A:Really big problem, temperature at 91 Celsius

That doesn't make sense. The fan controls are in CMOS (press delete at the first screen when you start your computer to access CMOS). That's if there are any fan controls.

You could look and see, but I'm not sure that's a fan issue. It sounds like a misreported temperature. In the past most people used Motherboard Monitor to know the CPU temperature, but it appears it's no longer in development and I've not found another one yet that reports temperatures somewhat accurately. Although, there is Speedfan, but I was told that it was flaky.

I recently was forced to reformat my harddrive and reinstall Windows xp. All went well except now I have 4 error messages in my system readout. My chip sets Intel 82801 pci bridge and my Intel 945G pci express won;t load.

In the system it list it cannot find drivers for multimedia controller, simple pci,etc,etc.

I have looked all over the net for these drivers with no luck.

I have a Dell XPS 400, with Windows XP SP2.

Thanks for any help.

A:Can't get my chipsets to load

Go to the Dell support site and download and install the drivers for your model computer

I have a Nvidia GeForce4 mx 440 card. After repairing my computer from a "Win32.Worm.VB.TB", I found that I still have a few issues such as the one in the title line: could not load OpenGL... I have reloaded the drivers from the Nvidia website, but nothing has changed.

I have a Toshiba Protege 7020CT that i am working on for my daughter. It had no cd-rom or disk drive so i ordered the docking station that hasnt arrived yet. Now the laptop would load up with windows 2000 just fine. So i took the hard drive out, put it in my laptop and added windows xp and a few programs. it works on my laptop just fine, but when i went to put it back into the Toshiba it doesn't load up. The only thing is does is show a black screen with a blinking line at the top. I put windows 2000 back on the drive and the same thing. Anybody else with this problem that can help me fix it. Thanks

A:Laptop wont load

swapping back and forth is a bad idea -- do this ONLY to extract important data.

Why? Each computer has unique components, especially the onboard devices.
These require unique software drivers and getting a system to run from boot to
the windows login screen still requires many of these to be exactly correct for the

Place the drive where it belongs and then fight thru the issues to get things straight.

You are now going to need the OEM CD that came with the laptop and perform a
Repair or Recovery opperation by booting from the CD.

Insert the CD, boot the hardware, and hit the key for BIOS setup.
Make the CD the first device and save settings. This will reboot and run the
CD setup.
