I bought this Processors at June 2006, Now its still running and my mb is 775i65GV the only problem is that my CPU gets over heated and the computer shuts downs, later when I opened it the case and there was lots of dust accumulated on my motherboard especially on my CPU fan so that's why it was shutting down and my Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) has run out of its juice and the time is showing 2006 again so I called a local computer mechanic to clean of the dust on my CPU fan and the thermal paste was all dried off so i said that u should clean it with a soft cotton cloth but instead he just removed it with a screw diver and left many scratch mark and installed it again without applying paste. So what should I do... later on I changed my smps ram and cmos from where i bought my computer. And nowadays a new symptoms starting to appear (1st appeared on Jan 2012) When I am installing any pc game it just crashing and saying intel extreme graphics driver some system file is missing, later on i researched & found Blue screen of death. It disturbs me when I am doing any work graphics and when I am installing Windows, So what should I do ?

for the cmos, i hope you have replaced the battery, you get it in any watch shop

for the dust, if you are knowledgeable, you can clean it your self, or call another mechanic (technician) to help, also, get some fans for the cabinet itself based on if it has any openings and the fan size and 4 pin power connectors that it has available

lastly, a 2006 build is going to show aging, cant do much about it

edit: i think the thermal paste is not going to change much

well first of all you open the case
then you should see the fan now turn the little circles around and pull up and you will see the cpu
now heres the thing if you have thermal paste then put a tiny bit on like pea sized and put the cooler back on by doing the steps in reverse but pushing the circles down
now if you dont have thermal compound then use mustard

if you dont believe me check out this

Hey I had the same cpu months back when i upgraded to a 4670k. That cpu is bad and mine topped at 85c. You should save money for new build but until then use new thermal paste and a better air cooler.

you may have more issues than you think.

1st i would never go back to the tech that used the screw driver to clean the cpu, always use rubbing alcohol. and apply arctic silver5 thermal paste and only use a small amount the size of a grain of rice and spread it evenly. make sure to get it in the scratches, but if theres to many and looks realy bad you can get a used pentium d from ebay for about 15 bucks. also the 805 is the slowest pentium d they ever made. i had the 815 2.8 ghz and upgraded to the 955 3.6 ghz. you can check on microsoft.com for the specs of what cpu you can upgrade to when you find out which chipset is on the mobo. i beleive the boards with the 805 where rather rare and if i remeber correctly the 3.2 ghz cpu is the most you can install on that board.

whats probably happening is, with the virus in your pc, their is alot of background virus programs running using all your cpu which makes it run hot and slow. also a hard drive of that age is probably not read and writing very well anymore, i should know i have the same old dell and its getting slower everytime i use it. and its been maintenanced regularly by me. theres a common place on around the hard drive that collects alot of dust and hard to get to, heating up the drive.

ok, so my 1st question is, is the fan screaming loud? if so when you look in your pc do you see a large black box. they are the old box coolers and easy to remove. you need a long screw driver and there is 2 screws on a spring, one on top and one under the box unscrew those and the box swings outwards and can be removed at that point. check and clean all dust. clean all dust from the intake fan and around and around the bottom where the hard drive is.

before i right a wall of text. i recommend if you really want to keep this old pc please note that the cache on the 2 core isnt really for 3d games but can run some of them but may have texture rendering issues. keep in mind that, that pc is only worth 40 to 80 dollars now.

so if you want to keep it i recommend getting a new hard drive and a used cpu from ebay. since it has a wore out hdd and scratched cpu. and then reinstall windows.

if you feel this is too much for you to do. you may want to consider getting a newer pc. i dont recommend spending any money on a tech to fix this problem.

I use the blower of my vacuum cleaner to clean of the dust particles, Is it safe to use a blower and it blows very hot air...

Yes Sir, I do it in an open area and make sure that no one is there so that it may not harm them from next time I will use a pollution mask, because too much dusts gets accumulated blown away here and there. How this tiny dirty dusts gets into a computer ??

highways, construction, windy area, pollution, there is many reasons. also, if you had not opened it in 8 yrs, it is kind of expected. the fans pull air for ventilation, and the dust gets in and settles down on components.

also, there is recommendations from other forum members, i think there is also a post with help on applying thermal paste.
