Default Please Help Me!!!

my computer wont stay started for more than 2 min... i am on my friends pc atm.. for sumreason my p4 2ghz with a gigabite 8x mobo will not say started up!! i think it has to do with the chipset the fan with the gigabite logo on it (the the cpu fan) is clicking and not moving as fast at it should... i dont have a temp sensore on what i think is also called the nothbridge (chipest) so i dont know how hot it i... but the side of the hsf (for the chipset) is prety hot to touch... could that be my problm??? a new chipset fan / better one? i dont overclock so that isnt the reason for restarts... pls help me... my friends is sick of me being at his house 24/7

go to comp usa or bestbuy and purchase a PS tester for around 10$ . Did you put the computer together ? It sounds like your CPU heatsink fan is going bad from what youve described.

it was the norhbride fan... i took of the crummy gigabyte 40 mm fan and sat a 80mm fan on my vid card pointing right at it and it works better but it still crashes underload... i have to get a better one...

What are the temps in your bios? Did you just build this system or have you run it for awhile?
i am still having this problem... my idle cpu temps are 26-32... but i dont have a temp sensore on my nothbridge... if my hdd was overheating could that be a problem?? cuase i think it might i touched it and it was rather warm... is that normal?

It may me your ram i had faulty ram and when i opened a program that required a lot of ram it would just restart. I also thought it was a heating problem but it wasn't. Try mem test 86. If not ram then it's just a general heating problem.
