Windows 7: Intel 945GC Graphics Card Help

Windows 7 Professional, Windows Longhorn 4074

This is a good computer. It's the cheapest one I could find that doesn't suck: The Dell Online Store: Build Your System

Windows 7077

So, that's 2 ppl now that have suggested replacing the entire computer to fix a simple overheating problem, just so we're clear.

Shop around, if you do want/need a new computer. I had capacitor and overheating problems with Dell as well.

Still, I suggest posting your model number just in case there is recall information.

Back to the original question, his computer runs at ~120 C in Windows XP, however nothing appears to be wrong; the computer is still usable. So, the sensors could be inaccurate. 120 C ... that's high, and most processor's maximum temperatures are around 100 C. Past that, the computer will slow itself down, and possibly shut down.

Not sure if this is a great idea, however could the original poster, kurix, stick your hand around the back of your PC, under the PSU, where the processor fan should be located. You are looking for airflow and temperature. Does it feel that hot? I mean the air, not the computer :).
