Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could help me with this issue. when playing visualisations in windows media player, my console temperature only reaches to 45 or 50 celsius, where as then an alarm is activated, i've been told its due to my bios settings and that i have an option to ajust the temperature setting for higher or lower, is this correct?? and if so how do i configure it, i'm doing the research but am new to all this.

Thanks

What motherboard is it?

You go into the BIOS by pressing the Delete key (probably) when it posts.

There should be something like "PC Health Status" or "PC Monitoring"

It should be in there somewhere with the option to turn it up.

Pressing Delete brings up the BIOS.

POST = Power On Self Test. This is when the computer beeps.

In the BIOS you can configure options on the motherboard.

When you start the system keep pressing the delete key like previously instructed you will be faced with a menu this is the bios. The option your intrested in will be named <PC HEALTH> or <PC MONITOR> or similar the option you want is CPU WARNING TEMPERATURE or again similar. Below is a pic of my bios section not great i know.

When your screen comes on when you first start your computer,you should press the DELETE key on your keyboard to get into your BIOS menu.

Hi again

If you cant get into the bios when pressing the delete key on your keyboard at startup then you need to try a different key say F!, or F2 cos different motherboards use different key combos to enter the bios. Most use the delete key thats why we suggested that key if you know what motherboard you have post it and we will get back to you.

Hi Musicmad

Below is a link to the motherboard manual just go down the page until you see a english version for your board it there i downloaded it. According to the manual it says to hold down the delete key while booting up to enter the bios so try it and you should get to the blue bios menu from there.

Hi again

The link is to a pic of your main bios menu on the top you will see five options: " Main, Advanced, Power, Boot, Exit". You want the power option you can highlight this by using the arrow keys when on the bios main menu. In this selection you will see the hardware monitor selection this is what you want to highlight again with the arrow keys to move with and when on it just press enter on the keyboard. When in this section try disabling the "Q fan control" and hopefully this will do it.

Hi Colster,
Thanks for the links, i took on your instruction's "which where a great help" and know i have accessed the main bios menu. you mentioned disabling the (Q fan control?) but this is where i get a bit hazy because there are 3 options for temperature, an 4 options for fan speed, but which from the 7 is the correct one to alter??
