This only happens when I am rebooting my system! Since this is the only time they are at normal operating temp (50-55c idle). Usually this hasn't been that big of a deal but this morning while trying to install updates the fans spun down too soon since windows unloaded the driver causing them to overheat and crash my updates. Then when trying to do the initial restore it happened again. I finally got the system to stay on long enough during the recovery period so I can get back into windows.
This issue started happening right around Christmas, I haven't changed anything on my system. I noticed one day when working on linux livecd that the fans weren't spinning on my graphcis cards since the LiveCD distro didn't have sufficient driver for fan control. Which caused the system to reboot before I goto to the Gparted utility to install Mandrake. Since then it reboots randomly as stated above.
I don't know if flashing the ROM will help control the fans or not but my BIOS has no control over the fans in the graphics card just CPU, Northbridge, System.
Any other suggestions??? I am short of propping up a 20" box fan to the side of my case for when I need to do work in DOS, or anywhere else that may not have fan control drivers for my cards.
