Overheating Solution?

Overheating Solution?

 

Can you Piriform Techs perhaps add a Anti-OS Overheat Feature on Defraggler & CCleaner? Because I've been having OS Overheat problems lately & that's why I'm asking :) .

I'm not a techie here. Do you mean a 'heat monitering app', or a coolant system? Speccy gives real time heat readings of processors. I don't think Piriform is into the coolant department.

PC_SecurityGuard, most overheating problems are caused by dust accumulation on the fans that cool the pc located on the case/GPU/CPU/power supply, or by very low amounts of RAM (computer is using the HDD a lot), or by being kept in a location that is too hot for normal computer operation.

 

Blow out your dust with a blower while holding the blades of the fans with a q-tip so they don't over-RPM. Do this while the computer is OFF & UNPLUGGED.

 

Check how much RAM you have with the crucial memory scanner. General rule is, anything less than 1 GB is inadequate. Many users need 2 or 3 GB MINIMUM.

 

Reduce your startup items to a bare minimum.

 

Swap Norton/McAfee for AVG free.

 

CClean, then defragment your drive fully.

 

Locate your PC in a cooler room (if necessary).

 

* On older hardware, XP is the lowest you can go and still use modern programs. It may run slightly cooler. Modern hardware runs better on 7.
