my house burned down and I was given a nice Emachines T3958 (pretty new) by my church. I have labored over this following problem about 40 hours, starting with about 20 quality antispywr-malwr-AV progs, and throw my hands up!

The factory fans just run AND run and RUNNNNNNNNNNN constantly, I move to another user account or standby, they just RUN. Driving me bonkers.
Please guide me down the path of quietness :)
Thanks, this forum is the best!

Click the HWMonitor link in my signature, take a snapshot of it open, and attach it to your next post.

84 C is very hot for a CPU to be running... I'm thinking you're fans aren't running correctly. Unplug the case, take apart the side cover and clear out the dust with a lint-free cloth and a can of compressed air (be sure to use it lightly, as it's bad for the environment and can be dangerous if used incorrectly).

Fans will not help an overheating CPU. A new heatsink will do the trick.

Diabillic, unsure where to go from here, to do a new and better heatsink fan.
Maybe something with a V12 in it. :)

The heatsink might be looking clean but your thermal paste might be dry and not doing its work.

The only way to check that is to take it off and if you do that you will have to reinstall new paste so be sure to have paste handy if you do.

Also if the fan is noisy then the fan might not be turning properly (bearings ect)

If the heatsink is clean and operating properly, you may just need new thermal paste as alreay stated.

I would recommend Arctic Silver.
