Windows 7: CPU temp way high

You know I sometimes come to believe that when women say they clean the house. They only clean the outside.. never move anything. Take things apart to clean them. The lady I got it from was alone and her husband was in Iraq. He is the high tech one i presumed.

She told me that this has been happening ever since she bought it but I don't believe it. I would have given it 4 months without ever blowing it out. I have seen some computers that had lots of dust in them and I have taken off the heat sinks but never in my life have I seen one this filthy.

There is this guy that seems to have exactly the same model that was on it that lives near by. If i can't get that one I will definitely get one very close to the one you choose. I am not looking for a high speed one, especially when this is a base modeled PC.

I say always do what works best for you, your machine, and your budget. Hope it works good for you. Some people just don't understand how important cleanliness is in these machines (or don't care).

Can you take a detailed photo of your mother board with the connections still attached....


Also... i know this is a dumb question to ask and its not like people have thermal paste just lying around.. Did you clean off the cpu and head sink and reapply the paste before reapplying the heat sink again/

I was also wondering if you kept yourself grounded as you were working inside the case?

Yup... a little device called New Balances. lol

I got it to work. Once I cleaned the fan.. it went from 67 down to 34c... but becuase the dirt has been on there for so long and hurting the fan. It messed with the barrings... I can hear the fan going but at least its keeping the cpu cooler now. I still ordered a new heatsink and fan to replace the stock one.

Sorry acurasd. I was actually addressing illway1 in my previous comment about grounding.

Glad you've got your temps down and the new cooler on order.

Another thing that caused my computer not to boot the screen up was the 5volt plug in the motherboard... usually next to the cpu.... I forgot to plug that back in and the compter powered on but not the rest of the devices on the mother board. I would just try to take a look at my connections again... step by step...

If they all look god.. You may have to take off the Heatsink... Wipe off the old paste with alcohol and make sure you don't see a burn spot in the middle. Most CPU's that burn will smell burn. Then, wipe off the old paste off the heat sink and reapply the new past... about half the size of a pea... once it heats up, it will spread.
