    I don't know what to do about my PC overheating and i was looking for some advice. I have an attachment of the temps and voltages of my computer.

    You need to tell us your system hardware specs as what you are showing us looks fine for many systems.

    I have a 320GB Maxtor and 40GB Seagate(can't remember for sure, but doesn't really matter :rolleyes: ). ABIT KX7-333 Motherboard with an AMD Athlon XP 2600+ processor. 1GB of RAM. Running Windows XP Service Pack 2.

    One thing I didn't understand is that I have 4 80mm fans and it only says that I have 2 fans and that one isn't working. I can visually see all 4 of them working.

    In any case, 32C on an Athlon XP is a great a temp.

    Okay well that definitely makes me feel better then. But that still doesn't explain my original problem of my computer crashing over and over while playing R.O.S.E. Online.:confused: It was suggested to me before that my computer was most likely over-heating.

    Is it only during this one game?

    Might be your powersupply, or your drivers?

    What are the exact symtoms when it restarts, do you get a blue screen? Does it crash pretty fast, after a few hours? Random?

    Well it is an MMORPG so currently it is the only game I'm playing. So I can't completely answer the first question besides that it only crashes when I'm playing the game. Not sure about the power supply, I have a 350W Antec. It is very fast when rebooting. I'll be mid-play at any random spot and it just completely shuts off and reboots.

    I see from your previous thread that the problem was 'restarts'.

    You need to run sysdm.cpl and go to Advanced > Startup and Recovery and remove the check for "automatically restart". That should get you a BSOD to look at.

    In the mean time do this:

    I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

    1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
    2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last 2 or 3 minidump files to that folder. They are numbered by date.
    3 > close the folder and right click on it and select "Compress to (folder name).zip"
    4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

    This might point us to a 3rd party driver causing the error, if one exists for it.

    Since almost all bugchecks can be caused by faulty ram, I would recommend you perform this necessary test.

    The memtest86 one which both of you gave me actually. But now that I read it more I figured it out. Well sorry to split in the middle of my problem but it is getting very late for me. I'll get back to you guys ASAP. Thank you very much for the help as of now!
