We bought our PC a MEDION at ALDI UK last November (2004, so still under warranty!) and the PC always started up very noisily, but then the noise level died down. Since we had a trojan, problems with Norton Utilities 2005 and a lousy PC repair centre (!) the PC is noisy ALL the time (the fan doesn't seem to slow down anymore!).
I browsed other similar posts and their replies and checked with the EVEREST program the temperature of the PC before and during the running of an antivirus program (as recommended to somebody with a noise problem). Here the details:
MEDION PC – Nov 2004
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 2
CPU Type Intel Pentium 4 550 3400Mhz (17 x 200)
Motherboard MSI MS-7091 (Medion OEM)
Motherboard Chipset Intel Grantsdale i915P
System Memory 512 MB
BIOS Type Award (10/28/04)
Temperature “normally” whilst Antivirus running
Motherboard 45° C 46°C
CPU 71° C 74° / 76° / 82° / 87° / 88°C
GPU 59° C 60°C
GPU Ambient 49° C 50° C
WDC 41° C 43° / 46° / 47° / 48° C
CPU 4327 RPM 4441 RPM
What can I do? I suspect a software problem which makes the PC run on "high", is that possible ? Or is it just ambient temperature (beeing summer, albeit generally it feels more like autumn) or dust?? Or a fault with a fan?
Thanks for any help in advance !!
