What temperatures is the CPU running at ?
All the best Brett
I have to say the CPU is running at a temperature that has to be considered normal for an AMD Athlon II 640 Quad-Core CPU in a HP p6710f PC. The unit is not in a cramped or cluttered position and the ventilation ports in the case are fully open.
I can normally and successfully cold boot the unit in the morning and it will function normally all day and evening long until I shut it down at around midnight, as long as I do not restart it somewhere during that time span. But, if I do attempt to restart it to complete an update or installation, it will not. What I have to do then is shut it completely off to "cool" for awhile - ten minutes to some longer time. What I try to do is just shut it off overnight, knowing that it will start and run normally then.
