How does my temperatures and voltages look?

How does my temperatures and voltage look? Are they ok? Don't most computers have a safety thing where the computer will reboots or shutdown before it overheats? I know my old computer did, when there was to much dust.

Here is a screen shot

The temperatures look fine but the voltages are all over the place. Check your BIOS for 3.3V, 5V and 12V rail.

In the last week or so HW monitor has been giving false reading for some members.

Do as Boozad suggested and post results.

Unfortunately, Dell doesn't have the voltage in their bios but I have a suspicion what is causing it and it might be normal. I have my system over a year. I am trying to find a Linux tool to confirm the voltage. Lm-sensors does not work for voltage on my system.


Can a surge protector cause the voltage problem?

That's what's probably causing it.

You have a Dell desktop with a Dell motherboard and you can't see the bios volts and temps. That sure doesn't make any sense. I have never owned a Dell so I really don't know.

It is all-in-one desktop. It is a hybrid of laptop and a desktop. It has wifi connections.

The dvd/cd burner driver works like a laptop you can auto eject the drive but you manually close the drive back.

Update, thread solved. I found a few tools both windows and Linux. Voltage information is not available through normal methods. I guess I could ask over at the dell forum later if there is any tools to see the voltage correctly and thank you both.

Hi everyone, about 3 weeks ago I got a random BSOD whilst alt-tabbing out of a game (DOTA2) something I'd done quite a few times before with no issues. I scouted around and noticed mention of bad nvidia drivers burning out cards. These were the drivers I had installed so I rolled back to...
