Default Motherboard warning sound overheat

HI everyone and a happy new year to all

I have a problem with a Foxconn MoBo that I have just fitted , it keeps making a buzzer sound and the CPU Fan goes flat out every time I try to download a youtube video or if I have more than one browser page especially 2 ebay pages , it just seems to buz quicker when using a lot of graphics , I have tried a PCi-Express video card and it makes no difference .

The warning temp in the bios is 70 the highest I can set it .

MoBo : Foxconn 946 GZ MA , CPU 3.00 GHz , Ram: 2 GiG , Windows 7 Ultimate .
PSU : 500W .


tks

spike

Open up the computer and check all connections on the mobo. Check RAM slots and other card slots, make sure everything is correctly in.

make sure you used new thermal paste, the heat sink is properly seated in the 4 holes.

Thank you all

I seem to have sorted the overheat problem , when I had the MoBO out I was just looking around it where the CPU heat sink sits in the board and I noticed that the board where the 4 legs are clipped into had a slight bend in it as if the pegs where pulling to much on the board .

what I done was released 2 legs in opposite corners and the board seemed to have pulled back level .
put everything back in and booted up and running a video the fan speed increases slightly but no overheating and no buzzer going of so it seems to have fixed the problem !! .
