Cpu temperature question

Hello all;

I know next to nothing about motherboards or cpus or whatever; apologies in advance ... my computer occasionally shuts down of its own accord; after some online research I'm led to believe this might be because of the internal temperature. i downloaded HWMonitor, but cannot make any sense of the readings.

I have an Acer computer with E661GXM

Here is a text version I copied:
Do I have three fans on the computer? if so, the fact that Fan PWM 2 is operating at 0%; does that mean it's not working.

ardware monitor ITE IT87
Voltage 0 1.34 Volts [0x54] (CPU VCORE)
Voltage 1 2.62 Volts [0xA4] (VIN1)
Voltage 2 3.34 Volts [0xD1] (+3.3V)
Voltage 3 4.78 Volts [0xB2] (+5V)
Voltage 4 11.01 Volts [0xAC] (+12V)
Voltage 5 -13.70 Volts [0xD6] (-12V)
Voltage 6 -8.32 Volts [0x82] (-5V)
Voltage 7 4.95 Volts [0xB8] (+5V VCCH)
Temperature 0 60°C (139°F) [0x3C] (TMPIN0)
Temperature 1 36°C (96°F) [0x24] (TMPIN1)
Temperature 2 4°C (39°F) [0x4] (TMPIN2)
Fan 0 2637 RPM [0x40] (FANIN0)
Fan PWM 0 66 pc [0x55] (FANPWM0)
Fan PWM 1 31 pc [0x28] (FANPWM1)
Fan PWM 2 0 pc [0x0] (FANPWM2)

Any help would be gratefully accepted. Maube I just need to bring it in to a computer shop for a good dusting.

Thanks
Niall

Please don't believe this readings. It can be wrong.

There are other free windows apps available on the internet. Try that too before reaching at any conclusions or taking it to a comp shop.

Btw, me too knows next to nothing about mb, cpus and all those jargons... :)

Go grab some of the basic hardware utilities. Grab HWmonitor. RealTemp. Run those programs and one of the stressing programs to check if the fan speeds increase and what temperatures increase. Usually, indidiual core temps will be higher than overall cpu package temps. Northbridge, HDD, will vary considerably depending upon airflow and heatsinks.

If you machine shuts down when you run a stress program and the fans did increase in speed. you machine is probably full of dust and needs to opened up and cleaned. If the fans don't increase in speed check the BIOS and any drivers that may control the fan speeds.

Thanks for all the advice. I took it to my local computer repair shop. heatsink was badly dirty and covered in dust. Had a good clean. Running great now. Motherboard now running around 55 degrees. Hard drives running around 45 degrees. Thanks again
