    High CPU usage on startup?

    Hi everyone, When turning on my PC, CPU usage rockets up to 100% for a few minutes. This has caused the PC to shut down on multiple occasions because (I'm assuming) the CPU got too hot (limit is 100 degrees). The main culprit of this is a task called "Windows Compatability Telemetry," which...

    Over the past 3-4 months my computer has been having some bad crash issues. I need help determining whether the issue is because of overheating due to having to use my brothers oldstock cooler (which has very little thermal compound on it) or if the problem is driver related. It all started...

    Vacuumed the top of my monitor and now it turns off

    Okay so I was vacuuming my desk and the areas around it and the top of my computer monitor looked dusty so, without thinking, I vacuumed the top of the holes and a lot of what I think was dust came out and it made a strange whirring noise. My computer was still on but I turned it off straight...

    Computer shutting down

    Recently my computer (dell xps 1800 running windows 10) had been shutting down and upon investigation, the fan was dusty and wasn't connected correctly- pieces had been broken a few years ago and glued back on, but the glue melted and the thermal compound had worn off. I got a replacement fan...

This happened to me before but only during the hot summer, never at 21 degrees Celsius room temperature. Well now it won't turn on...
