Why “Over Temperature” message is shown during boot time?

I am using DDR2 RAM and 2.5 GHz processor.

When my computer boots,  it shows the "Over Temperature"  message.

After sometime my computer turns off.

If I open RAM and insert RAM, my pc will start for one time.

Again the problem occurs.

What is the solution about this?

Most likely the causes are: Maybe the CPU fan is now working properly, try checking it, usually it should spin around 300 rpm in full loads, maybe in your case it must have been spinning around 1200rpm.

You can also check the heat sink maybe it was not properly installed when the processor is being installed, Try also checking out the settings of the Bios it might limit the CPU fan to its full work potential due to an acoustic setting, that can cause overheats and temperatures goes high up to 90 deg Celsius.

I also recommend to upgrade your CPU fan and might as well check your motherboard if its doing fine.

I think it's your CPU so i want you to boot your computer and then enter the Bios and look through it till you find temperatures and system voltage and check it and give me what you will find to give you direct solution of this problem

This problem in your computer has nothing to do with your RAM. RAM is used basically for storing temporary information and mainly used by the applications to load the files and store them temporarily for faster accessing. The shutting down of the computer doesn’t concern this device.

The Over Temperature message that you see on your screen points to your processor. Generally, when a processor gets overheated, your machine will just automatically turn off. The processor overheats because it doesn’t receive enough ventilation to cool down and maintain the temperature at a certain level.

This problem is usually caused by a faulty cooling fan. If the processor’s cooling fan doesn’t work properly, obviously the processor will reach its peak temperature and will then overheat that results in turning off the whole system. The shutting down of the system is automatically done by the system board to avoid any possible damage to the processor. You can temporarily solve this by placing an electric fan at the back of the CPU.

This will force cool air to enter the CPU and adds ventilation to the processor. If your computer shuts down because it overheated, let it cool down for a couple of minutes, put an electric fan in front of the CPU, and then start again the computer.

You should also replace the processor’s cooling fan to avoid further incidents.
