    Are these temperatures normal ? I checked around on the internet but everyone had different answers all over the forums. Do you think the fans are not working correctly ?

    (i used everest)
    motherboard: 35 C
    cpu: 20 C (this seems quit low..i didn't see anything this low on any website)
    cpu diode: 38 C
    mcp: 68 C


    Info:

    OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
    Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+, x86 Family 15 Model 79 Stepping 2


    thank you :D !

    the lower the better, to a point.

    They seem fine to me, the 68C seems a LITTLE high, but i'm not quite sure what you mean by mcp...

    My temps are as follows

    Motherboard temps
    32C-42C

    CPU temps
    21C - 24C (idle)

    HD temp
    31C

    GPU temp
    81C

    Software apps often return flaky info regarding temps. Check your temps in the bios and post those here.

    Another option is that many mb makers have monitoring software ie asus has asus probe, gigabyte has easy tune, etc. If you have one of these boards, download the latest version of the software and install.
    mcp=media comm processor ie it is part of an nvidia chipset motherboard.

    I'm so glad to hear that!! a week ago my computer screen would freeze up completely, or just go completely black. after closing it manually, if i turned it on immediately, the screen would just be black. but if i waited a while it would open normally...but then close again, so i was guessing it had to do with the temperature.

    the good news is i haven't had any problems for days now ! i should probably take extra precautions..

    You may have other problems. In the bios where you checked your temps, you can also check voltages. Check the 12V, 5V, and 3.3V values and post those here. If those are OK, download and run memtest There are detailed instructions on the site for making the boot CD so if you do not know how to make a bootable CD from the iso file, read through the instructions.
