tkrow21 Posted May 3, 2009 Posted May 3, 2009 One of my clan-mates is having an issue with his computer (which is two years old & from IBuyPower). Basically, after 10 minutes or so of playing Counter-Strike: Source, his computer gets a black screen and restarts. Anyway, I tried to help him as best as I can (he's a bit computer illiterate). I told him to run Furmark, and he went up to 107 C and stayed there (with an 8800GT). Those temps are pretty high, but he didn't crash. I told him to run Memtest, zero errors. I told him to download RealTemp and tell me idle temperatures. 97 C / 101 C. I'm assuming it's a dead sensor. Then it popped into my head that he had the computer for two years and hasn't done any maintenance, so it's probably dusty inside. I told him to blow out the dust and he has done so... still don't know if it works or not. Any other ideas for the meantime?
