nope ...we can check in the bios...reboot and tap the delete key once per second until you get to the bios screen...search thru the bios to find the motherboard temp and the CPU temps I have to eat dinner so it will be tomorrow before I will post again

Forgive me.

It's this age thing I got going on.

Just now checked speedfan and it doesn't have my motherboard on it's list so I only can check the HD.

Hi happyrck

Since I couldn't use speedfan, I downloaded FreshDiagnose to see if it would give me the temps.

Well, it downloaded, looks pretty, a lot of information, but when I hit the sensors button to get the temps it said an erro has occured, unsupported chip detected.

Is that a bed thing??

I will just keep looking for another program to get my temps to you.

Thanks for your help on this.

Hi happyrck and gerryf

You never gonna believe this.

I was looking for something to get the temps of the motherboard and CPU. Well I was directed to the MSI site and found something that might help. The link is

http://www.msi.com.t...list.php?kind=1

I downloaded the one about temps. It installed then when I opened it, it said no monitor installed, click the box closed and got a flash of numbers. To fast to read. Thought I should restart. Well, I hit the shut down button and guess what???

That's right the computer shut off. FINALLY!!!!!

Have no idea what it did. But thanks to both of you telling me to try this or that something worked.

Thank you for all your help on this. Sorry to have been a big trouble.

It had me puzzled for a couple of days. But NOW I know never give up and keep the hammer in the closet.

Thanks again for everything

well, that is interesting...

fwiw, everest might have listed cpu and motherboard temperatures as well, under COMPUTER > SENSOR

very strange that your PC should do that....

mornin gerryf

Everest only showed temps for the hard drive.

Apparently my motherboard does not have monitoring cabilities It's a MSI-6534 and wasn't listed in speedfan nor motherboard monitor. Which I found strange too.

When I checked BIOS, under Hardward Montior Setup there's only three items, CPU Seletion, CPU FSB Clock (MHz) and Spread Spectrum.


Thank you once again for all your support. Just glad it's fixed.

you should be able to see voltage and heat under PC Health Status in BIOS and/or FREQUENCY VOLTAGE CONTROL

My BIOS doesn't have PC Health Status and Frequency Voltage Control listed.

If you would like to check the manual, here's a link

http://www.msi.com.t...p?UID=40&kind=1

Just got a cheapo motherboard, I guess.

Thanks

I agree with you. When I first read the manual, seen that and said, What the heck is going on?, but then I read the whole manual and on Adobe page 79 (pg 4-5) is the AMIBIOS that I have on my computer.

Again, I have no idea why I don't have the good stuff, but what can I do?

Further down in Hardware Montior it shows the temps but, on my computer, the only things listed are the first three items. Again. Have no idea why, but that's all on my system.

Do you think I hooked up the motherboard the wrong way back in 2001? And all this time was running it incorrectly? Dunno? But it works.

weird, I don't recall seeing a motherboard that offered two different bios in production before.....usually, a switch like that results in a new motherboard model

No, you didn't do anything wrong

the bios setup is predicated on the hardware installed and has nothing to do with you...that is just darn odd

leave it to me to find the odd motherboard in the lot.

What was it that Red Green always say.

"If it ain't broken.....you ain't trying."

Thanks for letting me know it wasn't me.
