Those temps are very high.

Don't go over 72C, this is the Intel recommended max CPU core temp.
Intel Core™ i7-920 Processor
Your CPU will throttle down before it reaches 72C core temp.

Check if your CPU cooler is loose.
If it is, tighten it up, you will likely have to remove it.
If/when you do, clean the CPU and cooler contact surface with alcohol and a clean dry lint free cloth or coffee filters work well.
Get some good thermal paste, Arctic Silver 5 is highly recommended, if you haven't done this before try to get some help, this needs to be done correctly or the results could be worse.
It needs to be a very thin layer.

You can run the HDD diagnostic from a CD or USB memory stick, boot your computer from the CD/USB device.

Alright. I'll check out the fan and such today.

I was finally able to successfully run the windows backup overnight. I had noticed that the computer was having a good day yesterday, so i started it at 8 PM last night and it completed sometime in the night.

I'll be running the WD HDD test within the next 10 minutes.

essenbe, good link, thanks.


Darksider94, let us know the HDD test results.

You should remove the CPU cooler, clean the old thermal paste, apply new thermal paste, re-install the CPU cooler.

Then, Run RealTemp check idle temps first, if they are in the upper 20'sC to mid 30'sC, then run Prime95 to see where the high temp levels off at, don't let it go over 72C.
It should run Prime95 in the low to mid 60'sC at the most.

Let us know if you have any questions.

I'm getting so pissed right now. I just went through 2 discs and can't make the damn disc bootable so that it'll run the program when i put the damn disc in. I'm using CD-R discs.

I haven't run the test yet because of this....

If you downloaded the ISO file, you can use an iso burning software like imgburn, or just click on the ISO and Windows disk image burner will open, just click burn. If you downloaded the .ZIP file, right click on it and select extract, in the extracted file you will see the ISO. Follow the same procedure. Put the disk in and restart the computer, at the Dell logo screen push the 1 time boot options key (usually F12 for Dell), use the up down key and select your Cd/DVD drive and press enter. It should boot from the CD. You have to burn the ISO to the CD to make it bootable, you can't copy it. I hope this helps.

I've been using Nero to burn it as a bootable CD-ROM with the ISO. I'll try again with Windows Disc Image Burner then. And yeah, i was doing the F12 and choosing the right drive. It just wouldn't do anything.

Nero should have worked as long as it burned it to the cd.

If the CD is not working you can run the HDD test from the OS with the Windows version.
