Im having an issue with my pc !! :tazz:

after being on for a short while the fan starts to get louder, and then the monitor and next the pc shuts down, it restarts when i press the button, but again after a short time it shuts down ( roughly an hour or so).

There are no errors recorded in event log,so i have no idea what the issue is.

Could it be a hardware problem rather than a software one?

would it be wortrh reformatting or can it be sorted?

your help is appreciated

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then sensor

Give it a minute then note the temperatures

Minimize Everest and it should display the temperatures in the taskbar

Keep an eye on them, especially when the fan gets louder
