Without a CPU that's not much useful information.

I'm also moving this to Hardware Problems for now.

What we need to know is amongst things:
Motherboard & CPU.
What kind of case.
Where the case is.
Does he have any coolers in his case?

Little things like that. Until that time, I'd say for either a P4 or an AMD, that's not too bad a temperature, but let him try to clean out his CPU fan and heatsink, plus PSU fans.

The Athlon Palomino 1700+ will work fine up til 90 degrees Centigrade/Celsius. That's all about that. Wink

Like I said earlier, let him first try to clean his Heat Sink and Fans.
Let him try to run his PC with the side off.

But to follow up on his problem, what strength is his power supply? How much Watt?
What does his Event Viewer have to say on his power downs? What else does he have in his computer? Check this guideline for what I need.

his event viewer says nothing and he has just upgraded his power supply to 450watts so the power downs seem to have stoped.
cheers
