HP PC shutting down randomnly
« on: May 02, 2012, 06:48:40 PM »
Hey I am unfortunately back but fortunate to speak with the pros again!  :smiley:
Like I said, my HP PC just shuts down randomly. It also sound like a jet trying to fly away lately. Sometimes after it turns off, it doesn't trun back on unless I suck the juice out first then turn it on again.
Please help!  :wink:

Motherboards will power off if the CPU gets to hot. And most cpu fans start blowing at full speed when hot.

So you have it shutting off, and the fans going full speed (Why it sounds like a jet), and you cant power it back on till it cools a little.

Have you checked the CPU temp yet?

Go into the bios and see if it has a hardware monitor. If it does it should show the temp.

HP might be F10

If it doesn't show the temp we can try to find a program that will show it. :wink:

All temps look great except the last one.

The video card temp is showing 99 c with is over 200 f.

But I dont think that is right, no way the system would even run with it that high lol But it is always possible.

Is the video onboard or a card?

That might be the problem right there.

Keep the temp program open and run some video and see if the temp goes up. If it does you found the problem :wink:
