Hello i´m stuck in a very bad situation, i try to use my PC, but it only will remain on for about two minutes and then shuts off, then i try to turn it on again but it will remain on less and less time, until i just cant even get to windows. Then i let it rest for 10 or 20 minutes and then again the same situation i´ve described above.

I checked the PSU and it seems ok, i even changed it for a new one, but the situation is still the same.

I can´t make a ram mem test because it shuts off first, don´t have enough time.

I checked the temperatures at BIOS when i start the PC, this is the status right after i turn it on:

CPU Temp: 75 C, 167 F. (it´s a Pentium D)
MB Temp: 29 C, 84 F.
CPU Fan speed: 3276 rpm. (is this too slow????)
VCore Volt: 1.216 V.
3.3V Voltage: 3.32 V.
5V Voltage: 5.107 V.
12V Voltage: 12.032 V.
Q-Fan: Disabled.

And this are the readings just a minute or two later (without even going to Windows yet):

CPU Temp: 93 C, 199 F.
MB Temp: 38 C, 100 F.
CPU Fan speed: 3276 rpm.
VCore Volt: 1.216 V.
3.3V Voltage: 3.32 V.
5V Voltage: 5.107 V.
12V Voltage: 12.032 V.
Q-Fan: Disabled.

And then the PC just shuts off.

Are these temperatures very high? if so, what could be happening, i don`t have it overclocked or something, and in the room the temperature is not so high, it is hot, but acceptable, i´ve been in worst temperatures with no problem at all.


I hope someone can help me, thankx!!!

Problem solved!

The problem was that the heatsink was improperly seated.
Now is running cool!.

Thanks!
