  1. Try a disk defrag, and try stop useless programs and services from starting at startup. That'll boost the speed a little.
  2. How full is your HDD?
  3. sounds like something may be overheating. making more noise is a sign that fans are spinning faster to cope with more heat. Is it warm in the room the computer is in? Check that your heatsinks are seated correctly on the cpu and gfx card and make sure the fans are spinning and clean any dust from them. get HWmonitor to measure temperatures and see if any are particularly high.
  4. not sure if fail troll or just retarded

    have you got a different hard disk lying around that would go in your computer, if so try this because it might be due to your hdd having a lot of sudden drops in speeds which might have caused the slow boot up time and noise as your hdd being on load for longer. you can try downloading hdtune and test your hdd speed to see if it is the problem.
  6. @thegeek - i have tune up for that . the settings were fully optimum

    @rizlla - its 67GB full out of 250GB

    @iam2thecrowe- everything was OK. it was clean. the heatsinks were working fine.

    HWmonitor gave me this reading
    CPU Core#0- 65*C Core#1- 60*C
    GPU -54*C
    HDD - 50 *C
    Fans 1548 RPM

    @megadelayed - no i dont have an extra HDD. hdtune result was OK.

    60-65c, is that on idle?

    yes ..
  9. I'd do something about that. That's not a normal temp for a core 2 duo.
  10. now it shows
    Core#0 -76*C
    Core#1 -69*C
    at idle
    also pc is running continuosly for 2.5hrs

    Check that your heatsink is mounted properly and check to see if there's any dust gathering around it. Do the same with System fans, vents and so on.

    i checked the heatsink . it looked gud nd was tigh. but temp. is still same 65*C-72*C at idle
  14. i opened the side panel nd opened the AC vent of my room . room temp. is 24*C. but the CPU is still 65-70

    Help me !!!!!!!!!!!

    If the CPU heat sink is mounted on right and there is no dust around the vents and fans, blocking the air flow then try applying more thermal paste to your CPU. If that doesn't work then you may need a better active heat sink for your processor.
  16. did you overclock/overvolt the cpu now or at any time? What voltages did you use?
  17. the cpu is overheating. Try re-seating the heatsink with new thermal compound. Failing that, get a new cpu cooler, the coolermaster hyper tx3 is fairly cheap and much better than the stock intel cooler.
  18. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    while i tried to run COD mw

    Fan 2510 Rpm
    CPU 100*C - 105 *

    @thegeek - there was some thermal paste on the CPU
    @ctbaars - no . but i was thinking about that before
    @iam2thecrowe - thanx for that .any more options? will it fit i d case? will hyper 212+ be better than that?
  19. Hey guys . i borrowed my friend's CPU cooler . the temp. is 30-40 at idle but startup is still slow
  20. Defrag your HDD and use CCcleaner
  21. ok get a new cpu cooler stock ones are fail

    then defrag and use cc cleaner like dagasaitim.

    im just putting the suggestions in 1 post
