Computer suddenly overheating - shuts self down.
My CPU has started to overheat. Does this come with age? The computer turns itself off, within as little as 30mins, even if it has not been used in a day.
SpeedFan says the CPU is 82oC
All the fans appear to be working. I have cleaned what i could and am waiting for a can of compressed air to arrive in the mail this week to get the dust out of the cracks.
Could the CPU need a new cooling agent?
How can i prevent the computer from shutting down? I work from home so this is my livlihood.
