    Yes I did look at it, and I really feel my problem is different.
    Could it be Power supply problems?
    I,m going to upgrade to a big momma P4 2-4 (whatever I can get) processor and motherboard so I,m going to be needing a new power suply anyway, But I still thhink it's weird it just started doing it. Nothing feels hot on the board, but one HD seemed abit' hottish.
    I,m right now a amd 700, 128 ram guy now with 2 HD's a cd writer, a regular cd, and a new AIW radeon 7500
    Anyway dats' my story

    1) Talking about the MONITOR overheating...not the board or cpu.

    Yes a PS issue could cause this. so could bad memory.
