Preferred Solution: power down for no reason how do I check temps

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: power down for no reason how do I check temps

Your power supply might not be enough for everything you're trying to run. Have a read here
Allied AL-D500EXP 500W power supply review and even though not exactly the same model it's basically the same. For your temps you can Download something like HWMonitor here
CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting
Let us know what temps it reports. Also get rid of Avast and use MSE with the free Malwarebytes for weekly scans

Terribly sorry if this doesn't belong here; but it seemed to fit under 'cooling'.

As title, my Radeon X850XT is idling at a full 10-15C higher than it used to on my old mobo.

I went from the ASUS A8N-SLI Premium to the ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe.

Switched because the former was defective. Nothing else has changed, just the idle temp is quite a bit higher, which has me worried I did something wrong..

edit

forgot to add the actual temps

before
Idle 32-36C

after
Idle 45-50C

On one of the thread, this person had downloaded the two most common software to detect your temp (Everest and Speedfan). However, i've heard you can also use the PC Wizard to check your temperature as well. How do you do that? So apart from having to download software, is there another way of checking your cpu temperature straight from your pc wizard or something? BTW is temperature around 55.5 C - 56.5 C is alright temp as i checked in the bios setup. Is it too high or close to a high temp category.

Suggestions will be very much appreciated and thx in advance.
 

A:How do you check cpu temps.

Speedfan is available in the downloads section of this site. Your temps are a little high. Get speedfan and check the temp while in windows and when stressing your system, when you are in the bios you processor isn't doing much.

lately I ran across an article about TCPA, Palladium and Longhorn (two windows versions).

{Taken from the FAQ of www.NoTCPA.org }

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. What are TCPA and Palladium?
TCPA stands for the Trusted Computing Platform Alliance, an initiative led by Intel. Their stated goal is `a new computing platform for the next century that will provide for improved trust in the PC platform.' Palladium is software that Microsoft says it plans to incorporate in future versions of Windows; it will build on the TCPA hardware, and will add some extra features

2. What does TCPA / Palladium do, in ordinary English?
It provides a computing platform on which you can't tamper with the applications, and where these applications can communicate securely with the vendor. The obvious application is digital rights management (DRM): Disney will be able to sell you DVDs that will decrypt and run on a Palladium platform, but which you won't be able to copy. The music industry will be able to sell you music downloads that you won't be able to swap. They will be able to sell you CDs that you'll only be able to play three times, or only on your birthday. All sorts of new marketing possibilities will open up.

Hello Friends,



We have one server which has 32 GB of Physical memory, recently the pagefile is moved to d:\ and set as system managed.

Suddenly the size of Pagefile.sys is started increasing and at one point of time it reached to 70 GB, now question is...

1. If it reached to 70 GB again, how to check which process(es) is causing sudden increase of page file, which column in task manager (Private Byte/Working Set/Committed Bytes/Virtual Bytes) need to take in consideration to calculate the pagefile.sys size.

2. How to control it.

In short the question is... if someone ask me to present the Pagefile usage with process names then what should be my answer and what parameters do i need to add to showcase the same.

After installation of new motherboard and AC F64 Pro, BIOS shows 28C for the CPU. SpeedFan's "Core" shows 31C. However, it's "Processor" shows a WHOPPING 51C!!! Everest shows same 51/52C!

I'm sure it can't be that high. Are th "Core" and bios ones that are correct?

I completely changed out my system. I put in a new mobo. I put in new hard drives and I added new DVDrw's. The new mobo is a Foxconn A76ml located here

http://www.ebay.com/itm/270908760312?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

Anyway I had a total of three DVDRW's 2 of these were SATA and one was IDE. I also had four new hard drives. Three were SATA one was IDE. The mobo had an IDE channel installed so I attached the ide devices, the hd and the dvdrw to this.

The four sata's were filled on the mobo and I needed another so I added a raid card.

Everything was fine for about a week. Then I noticed one or more devices would not show up whenever I rebooted. It seemed like every other day I'd have to go in there to re-connect a hdd or a dvdrw.

Yesterday my pc failed entirely. I wouldn't start up or if a switched voltages from Europe to us and back again it would start up. Then it would be fine until I tried to add a raid device that didn't show up and the entire pc wouldn't start up again. Today I got it to start up without the raid device but it shut down by itself after a few minutes.

What is wrong? Is it the power supply, the mobo, too many devices, ( 7 = 4 hd's and 3 dvd's) or something else.

Thanks for helping.
 

A:I added a new mobo, now my desktop loses power for no reason

Well I played with it some more and discovered that it if I disconnected the Svideo cable from the video card that it started up fine. The video card is a Nvidia 9500GT.

This mobo says it was designed for ATI card. The card I am using is an Nvidia. That doesn't seem to be enough to cause this problem. Is there anything else I should be doing? I tried contacting the Foxconn website and they're down right now.

A:Power Supply check

Hi Panais,

No software that I know of, you can use a multimeter to check voltages on the various lines and thus work out current draw on the PSU and thus the power.

The easiest way is to add together the power "wattage" rating of each of your components (info should be available in documentation or on manufacturer's web site) a total of all the ratings at their highest load figure should give a worst case figure which should be less than your rated peak PSU output. The total of the "normal " Load figures of all the components that are working at the same time should be less than your continuous rating for the PSU.

This is of course an exercise based on quoted figures each component is different and also may vary over time.

Is this a general question or do you have reason to think the unit may not be upto the task?

Plz forgive me if this isn't the right forum to post this question.Its both a hardware and software query..

I recently re-verified the Novice part in my name wherein I accidentally flipped a switch that controlled the outlet that my power strip was on.. and made an ever dumber mistake by quickly flipping the same switch back "on."

My desktop is connected to a power strip, a pretty old one, that's suppose to act as surge protection.

I tried to start the desktop back up, but it was clear that the while the PSU was fine, the hard drive and the Mobo seemed to be experiencing difficulties. The screen was just blank with little to no indication of life. I manually turned off the desktop and restarted it twice in the same fashion. When nothing came up, I turned off the PSU to dissipate any remaining charges.

After turning the PSU again, the mobo (asus) finally reappeared and everything loaded, including the OS (XP Pro). Firefox reloaded everything from cache, so apparently nothing (software wise) seemed askew. I did notice the Quick Launch bar was missing, so I'm guessing my windows profile might have been affected slightly..

My question - aside from Window's HD error check (full 5 out of 5, the type that runs before the OS loaded) what other check-ups should I do to test if my desktop was damaged by my accidental self inflicted power outage?

Any hardware checks? Software-wise? OS-wise?

A:How do I check the specs of my power supply?

If your Dell computer was manufactured after August 1998, it may require the use of a proprietary Dell power supply. Although the Dell power supply looks like a standard ATX, it is a non-standard PSU that cannot be replaced with a standard power supply alone. Because of this design difference your Dell Power Supply may need a Dell to ATX power supply converter in order to be replaced with any standard ATX Quiet Power Supplies.

Pentium 4 Dell Models that do not require a power supply adapter:
Dell Dimension 4300, 4400, 4700, 8200, 8300, OptiPlex GX 400

Pentium 4 Dell Models that are not compatible with this power supply adapter:
Dell Dimension 8100
http://www.endpcnoise.com/cgi-bin/e/std/sku=dellconverter
open the case from the side
Remove 4 screws on the back of the power supply
Unplug everything from the power supply

Reverse the process your done. No real big deal. just make sure you know the power supply you purchase will work with a dell or the adapter you but with the power supply will work as well.

How do I find out the output of my current ps??
Look at the lable on the power supply it will tell you.

Also whats involved in replacing the cooling fan yourself?
Depends on what fan you are speaking of? the case fan? not much just remove it and replace. if your speaking of the cpu? a little more in depth, the stock heatsink+fan usally work and no reason to change unless overclocking.

A:check disk power failure

How to run chkdsk or System File Checker (SFC) from the Recovery ConsoleBoot your Vista or Windows 7 installation DVD
When you see "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD", press Enter
At the "Install Windows" screen, click on Repair your computer at lower left
At the System Recovery Options screen, make note of the drive letter assigned to your boot drive (normally C: ) and click Next
At the Chose a Recovery Tool window, click on Command Prompt. You will be sitting at X:\Sources directory
Run chkdsk or SFC
If you did not note the drive letter of your boot disk, you can enter bcdedit and look at the osdevice line to see what it is.
For chkdsk, type chkdsk c: /r and press Enter (use the letter from above if not C: ).
For sfc, type sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows and press Enter (use the letter from above)
Let either run to completion undisturbed.

Vista or Windows 7: If you don't have a install DVD, you can download a legal copy here:
Windows 7 Direct Download Links
Windows Vista Direct Download Links

Make sure you get the same version you have installed: 32 or 64 bit; Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate.

My friend's laptop won't turn on. It doesn't start to boot or anything. My first thought is it's either the battery or the A/C adapter but I'm not sure how to check those without having swappable pieces (which I don't have.)
I took the battery out and tried to power on with just the A/C adapter plugged in and same as with the battery in, only thing that happens is the little light with the lightening symbol flashes 3 times. Also the little light where you plug the charger in lights up while the charger is in. Would the laptop power up with just the A/C adapter plugged in and no battery?

It shouldn't, Does your computer start back up? Have you tried running diskchk again?
SSD or HDD?

Hey,

Apparently I fell asleep in front of my computer around 1 am (<.<) and when I woke up around 3 or 4 am, the power was out. I turned off the switch on my psu and just went to bed.

I just got up now and saw the electricity was back, so I turned on my PC. It said windows was not shut down properly, so I just went about starting Windows normally and didn't receive any errors afterwards. I restarted it a couple times, then powered down completely, turned off the switch again, and then discharged the motherboard's capacitors.

My question, I know power outages can be pretty damaging. Do you have a checklist of things I should check for, in terms of damages?

When I fell asleep in front of the comp, the only program running on the computer was an instant messaging app, so I'm pretty sure the HDD should be fine, but I will be running Drive Fitness Test/Western Digital Lifeguard, but I'd really like to know if I should run any other tests or procedures to see if any component (from the psu to the cpu) was damaged in any way.

Any tips are appreciated
 

A:Power Outage, What Components Should I Check?

If it boots up fine when you turn the machine on then you may have been lucky and no damage has been caused. The most obvious cause of damage after a power surge would be the machine not booting, or creating errors and crashing.

Is there a way to check a power supply besides plugging it in to your motherboard?
I cant tell if mine is dead or not, its a new case.

300w antec aria, 20pin (1 pin is missing a -5v connector, but Antec said its supposed to be this way). I plug it in and hear a little noise of power thats hard to explain.

The lights flickered on for a second one time, but i dont know why it doesnt like me
You cant plug in the Power connecter to the mobo wrong, its a 24pin on mobo but
20 pin fits fine, im doing it with other cases too.

Any idea?

My windows ME has been rebooting on its own. I posted here before and was told to check the RAM or power supply to see if it was going out..how do I do this???
 

A:{SOLVED} Windows reboting...ram or Power check

Well if the system just randomly reboots it is more than likely the PS(Power Supply). The RAM maybe, or even if the Processor is getting to hot. The PS is the easiest to check. Look at the FAN on the PS. Is it slow or fast? If slow then maybe it is getting weak. Next would be to open the system and disconnect the CD-ROM Drives and maybe a ZiP drive if you have one. Disconnect any USB devices that use system power and not thier ow power source. This would be like a webcam or some other small device. Printers, scanners and other large devices don't apply. Also remove your sound card, modem and/or NIC(network interface card). Leave the video card in for obvious reasons. Fire up the system and see how long it stays on. IF it stays on for as long as you have it on then it is a weak PS. If not then it might be the RAM or even the Processor. GOOD LUCK and let me know how everything works out. OH YEAH, if the system still turns off I would replace the PS before troubleshooting the other devices, because it is the cheapest device. Like $25 to $50.

I turned my emachine T2825 desktop off to move it. I plugged it back in and tried to turn it on but now it does not boot up, nothing on the screen. The blue indicating light around the power switch does not come on but the hard drive amber light is on and the processor fan is on all the time. I have been reading several threads with simliar problems on this PC and it sounds like the motherboard went bad and it is possible the power supply caused it to go bad. I have check my voltages and I get the 12 and 5 vdc at all my plugs. I have replaced the power supply with another 250w P.S. but it still won't boot up with the same results as before. Before I invest in another mother board I would like to make sure the power supply is bad or not. Is there a check for this? Also do these syptoms indicate a bad motherboard?

Thanks,
Gary
 

A:How do I check power supply on an emachine T2825

I would have to agree that it sounds like a bad motherboard...make sure that everything else is SEATED correctly, especially the video card.

You can get a 15 dollar tester from a computer store that allows you to test the P-Supply...Otherwise, you might google on home ways to test it.

My power went out for ten seconds yesterday, and when my desktop computer re-booted, I got a message saying drive D (hard drive) had to be checked for disk consistency. It passes the test and the desktop appears. Then the whole computer freezes. Does anyone know how to resolve this issue? Once the desktop appears, the whole computer freezes so I can't access anything.....

A:Check disk consistency after power failure, freezes

I suggest trying to boot into safe mode.

If successful, then initiate a chkdsk /r on the boot drive.

Start/Run...type chkdsk /r (with space between k and /) and hit Enter.

Type Y in response to onscreen message and hit Enter.

Reboot the system. The chkdsk /r will run before the system boots to the desktop. After the chkdsk /r has completed, the system will boot into XP automatically.

PC was running great.  Dog tripped over cord and unplugged it while it was running.  Now won't boot.  I had just run a chkdsk and everything was fine...no bad sectors, etc.  Now get error message "Hard Disk Short DST Check: Failed"  Cannot get boot sequence to go to my USB recovery to try to recover.  I suspect damage is to boot sector and not to the actual hard disk.  How can I get the PC to boot from the USB?  Failure ID: 60DPTG-0087D-9XPJXF-60QX03.  Is this drive 'shot' or can it be recovered AND can it be recovered with all my files still intact?  Please advise.  Many thanks.

Hi, my mom's pc and mine were recently hit by viruses. I downloaded some patches, etc. from Microsoft. My pc is OK but my mom's now has a blue screen that says 'please check signal'. Only the screen comes on for 1 minute- can't get anything when we try to power on. :dead: Unplugged everything, replugged it, tried combinations. Just before this, the system would run a debugging program that would freeze everything up. Mom was getting the blue screen before, but she found out that switching the power surge off, then on, fixed the problem. Sorry, I'm new to this site but was hoping for some info because everyone wants to charge her $80 to $100 just to discuss the problem, not to fix it. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:BLUE SCREEN: please check signal; no power, won't boot

Sounds like a bad power supply or a power problem that has damaged the motherboard.

Hi,

I need to "check cables and power", as a result of the Seatools for Dos test and on start up "Media failure, check cables PXE-E61" message. I also get a message from the CHKDSK using the XP Pro CD, saying after 26% that "The volumn appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems".

Do I remove all B6 screws or what else - to remove the rear cover to "check the cables"?

The start up defaults to the Safe Mode screen, then to BSOD no matter which choice is taken, the BSOD is too short a time to read the message and their is no option in Safe Mode choices to turn off "Restart on failure".

I have removed and reinserted the HDD and RAM with no change to issue.

Hope this makes sense and someone can give advice.

Regards

Wagga

A:How to remove back cover of Tecra S1 PT831A to check cable and power?

Hello

Every notebook has in BIOS the list of all bootable devices. If none of them can be used the last one, LAN port, will be checked and then you will see this PXE-E61 message.
So the problem can be your HDD.

Start with HDD check. Enter BIOS and set it to default settings. Restart notebook and check if HDD is recognized and listed properly in BIOS settings. If yes there is no problem with connectors.

I recommend you to obtain new HDD for testing purposes. Put new HDD and try to install OS using original Toshiba recovery disc.
Please post some feedback.

Please uninstall Gigabyte software, it is known for causing bluescreens and uses a few old drivers.

Please change the system language to english, this helps me understanding the files as I can't understand french.



Diagnostic Test

 DRIVER VERIFIER

   Warning
Please make a backup of your important files and get your rescue media or create one.
Please create a restore point.
Please follow this tutorial to run driver verifier.

Driver verifier stresses your drivers and will crash your pc if any driver fails due to a violation.

Driver verifier should be performed for a max of 48 hours, or when you have a bluescreen, whatever comes first.

If driver verifier has found a violation and you can't get back into windows normally, try to boot into safe mode and reset in safe mode driver verifier, or in the troubleshooting options open command prompt and type verifier /reset.


   Note
Your system will act very sluggishly while driver verifier is enabled, this is normal as your drivers will be being subjected to heavy testing in order to make them crash.

I had my power adapter plugged into my laptop, as normal, but the power indicator light did not come on as normal when I plugged it in before I opened the lid. It works in battery mode when I open the lid. My Toshiba PC Health monitor tells me the battery is "good." I'm using it now and it seems OK in battery mode. And yes, I checked the unit and cords--look fine. Power is on. There are no "stupid" mistakes on my part. Is there any way to check the "power adapter" in the laptop (laptop side--I don't mean the external one) using the Win 8 OS? I know this is probably a "hardware" problem but I figured I see if I could get any information from Windows 8 about the issue. I went into the device manager and checked the properties of Microsoft AC Adapter and Compliant control method battery, both under the "Batteries" section. I checked what seemed could be related to power under System Devices, and all say "This device is working properly." It is like the computer doesn't recognize it is plugged in to an AC source. If anyone knows a Win 8 method to check anything before I try to order an adapter or so forth, it would be appreciated. Thanks.

A:ERROR 220 - Failed at power status check! Status =...

Windows retrieved an update recently to update the firmware on the edge 2 laptops. Mine has been doing this same exact thing, however, each time at restart my battery has been below "the threshold" of 25 or 30% battery, I forget which. Next time you get a full charge, restart the computer instead of shutting it down, and hopefully should do the trick.
