Speeding up the fan through bios because CPU gets too hot.

HI, I have an HP TouchSmart 310-1124F desktop and am running Windows 7 64 bit. The CPU is an AMD Athlon II X2 240 and when busy, that is while playing a DVD/CD or updating Windows updates the PC just shuts off. After doing many things that didn't work, I thought that the CPU was overheating and causing the PC to shut off. So I bought a regular fan and aimed it at the back of the PC and it's not shutting off anymore. How can I speed up the fan by going into Bios. I could try that first and see how loud it gets if it works.
Also what kind of internal fan can I buy to replace the original fan with that would be quieter and more powerful. Thanks

  1. Get an aftermarket cooler like a CM Hyper 212 Evo. That will solve your problem. Stock coolers tend to suck.

    Thanks for the info, but it looks like some work involved in installing the new fan that you mentioned. Never really did anything like that before.

    Remove the thermal paste from the CPU. Put it in. Place the cooler on the CPU. Clip it on. Come with instructions and there are tons of videos.
