Hi, I recently posted here asking why my processor has been over heating causing crashes freezes etc. The person who spoke with me was very helpful and walked me through several diagnostics including reinstalling windows. Having gone through this I am now under the assumption that it isn't any thing software related. So I am now wondering what piece of hardware is malfunctioning. I don't think it has any thing to do with my RAM seeing as I have never touched it. I don't think it is my HD for the same reason. So that leaves me with the gpu,heat sink,psu,cpu, and mother board. Can any one tell me the chances for each of these things being the culprit?Where should I start? My instinct tells me it's the psu because my pc is about 5 years old now. My specs are:
AMD 4000+ processor
460w psu
ati 9550s gpu
abit av8 mother board
2 gigs of ram
windows xp 64bit

Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

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

Yep it shows temps as being normal but the voltages are not making sense.


Motherboard Info:

Download SIW from HERE and get the Standalone English version
It will install itself and when finished

Then Click on SIW Icon to run program
On the left side click on the Motherboard directory and then on the right, copy and paste the information in your next reply
On the left side click on the Sensors directory and then on the rightcopy and paste all the information.
