I have a desktop that was just working fine, however recently it developed a problem and shuts down upon diagnosis I realized that it was overheating. what could be the problem? I can see from the status diagnosis that the fan is just working fine so I ruled out the fan, can any other thing cause the computer to overheat rather than the fan?
My computer over heats then shuts down minutes after booting
You need to check out the CPU temperature .It may be your thermal compound has been gone off and your heat sink has come down.
You will need to reset your heat sink and then to paste the thermal for re apply.
If you had paste thermal , clean the old stuff and put the rice grain of amount in middle of CPU then down the heat sink squarely onto the CPU.
Any time you pull the heat sink. You will need to clean and apply the thermal paste. You will get the solution.
