I need at least your OTL log to know where to start. (Step 5 of the guide)


If you get an Extras log I want that too.




Run it and under Hardware look for Sensors. Click on Sensors and look in the right pane there should be some temperature readings. What are they? Watch your video for a little bit then look again. Are the temps going up?


1. Please download the Event Viewer Tool by Vino Rosso
and save it to your Desktop:
2. Double-click VEW.exe
3. Under 'Select log to query', select:

* System
4. Under 'Select type to list', select:
* Error
* Warning

Then use the 'Number of events' as follows:

1. Click the radio button for 'Number of events'
Type 20 in the 1 to 20 box
Then click the Run button.
Notepad will open with the output log.

Please post the Output log in your next reply then repeat but select Application.

Also download mbr.exe from


and save it to your desktop.

Then run it. It should create a log file on your desktop. Open it and copy the text and paste it into a reply.
