    Default Alright, I need some serious help with this

    I bought this computer about 2 and a half years ago, ever since I bought it it presented a problem: Overheating. I got it fixed a couple times and it worked fine, though they never told me exactly what was wrong. Then a couple of months ago it started overheating wherever I wanted to play something, even a GBA emulator made it overheat(though it could stay on for days if there wasn`t anything "heavy" runing). The return of the problem made me send it to the place I sent it last time(and where they managed to fix it), but the guy there told me he couldn`t find any problems and sent me the computer back. Now, behold, the computer came back WORSE than before. It just turns off after a few minutes, it doesn`t even overheat before turning out now. I already tried replacing the power suply(originarilly 450, now 500) and it`s still the same. I`m totally lost, as the cooler seems to be working fine. Please help me.

    Uh.. that sucks. If it is really overheating and keeps on switching off by itself, it might be that there's something wrong with your cpu. They've got a feature that prevents them from overheating to the point that's dangerous to them. When a certain temperature is reached, they switch off by themselves. If you can get another cpu, maybe you can try replacing it.

    Even though the cooler works fine, does the air surrounding the case feel too hot? Does the case itself have adequate ventilation?

    Memory is another possibility, bad RAM can cause these problems as well... but worst is a bad motherboard.. which is also possible...

    I guess the worst case scenario would be replacing your motherboard and / or your cpu.

    What about reformatting your computer and then getting a new cooler (or getting more coolers than just the one[s] you already have)?

    well if you changed your power supplyer, then all I can think of as a possibility is that your mother board has some kind of manufactoring problem. or maybe is your graphic card the one causing the problems. it could even be your processor fan.

    That's the kind of issue that requires you to bring it to a computer store where any decent technician (like me) will swap all the parts around to see which piece is the culprit.

    Tedious controlled swapping... aaaaah, fun fun.

    You ever tried just yanking the side of the case off and letting it run that way?

    Do that and see what happens. At the least, maybe you can save a few bucks on your heating bill.
