    Hi, my name is Mike Myatt and I have a problem with my computer It has an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+, at 2.2GHz, Socket AM2 wich is just turning off with no warning. I think this is because the CPU is overheating. Can I correct this by changing the heatsink ?
    Thanks in advance!

    When it's on, is the fan running?

    See if you can check the temperatures in the BIOS.

    When was the last time you cleaned the heat sink with air?

    If you're having heat issues, the HSF is most likely the source.
