OS: Win Xp home edition
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHZ hyperthreading technology
Original cooling, no extra fans.

Ok my cpu decided it was gonna start to overheat all of a sudden, for no reason at all. Its been woring flawlessly til awhile ago when i started to hear strange beeps from inside my computer. I turned on my abit utility which checks all the fans and all were spinning but the cpu temperature was 70 C. Its been doing this now occationally, going up to 70C and starting to beep.

Do i need an extra fan? cud that fix it or is there something else i could do, i mean, its weird that this problem occurs now months after my purchase and its been working good til now. Ive opened my case and all the fans are spinning. Both sys fan and cpu fan obviously.

Thanx for any help on this.

Try cleaning the inside of your PC first. So power down, then clean out the fans and especially the PSU with a can of compressed air. Make sure you get rid of all the gunk, spider nests and rat holes in there, before you power up again. It could be that simple. Smiley
