Shortly after start up, my emachine running xp, monitor looses signal, the fan on top the heatshrink/cpu shuts down. I've cleaned the machine. when I start up and go directly to system bios, the machine will run for without shutting down but shortly after starting windows xp it shuts down again. The fan on the power supply continues to run. Any ideas what I should do?

Hi Darylp.

If the fan on the CPU is malfunctioning, then the CPU is being overheated, you should replace your heat sink/fan.

The cpu fan continues to run as long as in system bios. However, shortly after exiting sys bios to windows, it shuts down. Is it still possible that the problem is the cpu fan?

its not the cpu fan because it works in bios and not in windows. so either ur cpu is overheating because windows uses alot more power then just the bios. more power= more heat.
