Yeah, if u can fry an egg on it the case must be getting close to 100 degrees celsius. I would turn it off.

Well. Still. Turn it off for at least 1 hour just to be safe. Go read a book.

You could try pointing a fan at your computer to cool it off a bit if you leave it on.

Find out what the hell's causing the heat, don't just leave it.

in addition to the fan perhaps take a side off...just be careful nothing gets inside...but also that could mess up the air circulation so just monitor the temp

If it is that hot, i dont think he really has any circulation. definitly take the side off until you get some fans

i turned it off for soem time (it is blisterring hot here anyways).

it wont do a clean start , so i hit reset and tried to start again, would not do it, third time i got trough to the screen which gives al lthsoe options

start normal
start in safe mode

.....


i managed to get through, do you guys think the fact that i had been running my comp for so long had some effect on it.

oh yes, when i was trying to shut down the system, it wold not do shutdown using start a few times, and then ultimately it did shutdown (after a few more tries)
