Please rerun Speedfan and take a Screenshot
To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop


Attach it to your next reply
Also do the following:


Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.


DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

Also on Everest in the left pane click on Sensors and in the right window Copy and Paste the information.

This will give us two programs readings on the temperature.

It looks to me like it's not your cpu but your video card is the problem.
Is this a desktop or laptop system?
Have you cleaned the inside of the system if it is a desktop?
I will await your response and we can continue from there.
Your GPU or Graphics Processor Unit is overheating.
If this is a desktop please open the side panel..looking from the front of the system it would be the left side panel.
Please check the fans inside.
There will be one on the
CPU
Second Case cooling Fan
and On the Video Card if it is a add on card

I have taken the side off, and it does need some cleaning, will have to get some compressed air in the mornning. The video card makes sense as it acts the worst and slows down the computer dramatically when trying to view pages with images and video. Could it bad a bad video card?

Pay close attention to the video card fan then.
I think that is where we are going to find some issues happening.
A can of compressed air is the best weapon. Pay close attention to the fans and make sure they are blown out good.
Also can you tell me if the video is onboard or is it indeed a add on card?

looks like an add on. however I am not too knowledgable about what I am looking at. where the vga plug is, that card although plugged into the bigger card looks like it could be easily removed.

If it is located in a slot on the MOBO then it is a add on.
There should be a fan on it if I'm thinking clearly.
Make sure when you turn the system on that it is turning correctly.
Is it making any noise or does it appear to be turning slowly?
How about the CPU fan...is it turning correctly to you?

OK MOBO fan would be the CPU fan.
Make sure this is cleaned out good.
Now for the video card...is there any way you can get a picture of the inside of your case for me?
Try to get a good picture of the video card if you can. If you have to and it is indeed in a slot remove it and try to get a picture of it by itself.
This will also allow you to reseat the card and thus make sure we are not having a connection issue with the card.
