Hello, everyone I am having issues with my cpu overheating and my computer automatically shuts down. The bios sets the shutdown at 75 degrees celsius and won't let me change it but the manufacturer for the cpu says 85 should be the shutdown. How do I change this so my computer quits shutting down on me?

I am running Windows XP home
the hardware is an AMD Athlon XP2500+ on and abit nf7 s motherboard the bios is Phoenix
Award bios
Can anyone please help me?

75c is a bad temp which you shouldn't be reaching anyway no matter what your max temp is.

What cooler have you got and when was it the last time you cleaned out your comp.

Well I cleaned everything out real good which helped cool it down some under 70 C. I found what cooler I have which just looks like a heat sink with a fan on top of it. On the fan it says "ECS Elite Group." It's a pretty old computer.
