I have Intel core 2 duo..Intel Heat sink.....My PC was unused for about a month as my monitor went off. Now I bought a new Monitor but pc was shutting down after 5 min or after applying and load. So I contacted a Local pc mechanic and he said that may be Power supply should be changed. But after coming home I found that I cpu heat sink was loose. I properly connected it. Still temp is 58-66 degrees and CPU fan speed around 2900- 3013..Please help
The heatsink needs to be removed, the old thermal material has to be thoroughly cleaned from the bottom of the heatsink & top of CPU, then a fresh line of thermal paste needs to be applied. Here are the instructions: http://www.arcticsilver.com/pdf/app...
