Hi, I have a amd 5000+ , it keeps overheating and shutting down. It idles at 57-64 degress. I've checked the fan and used a can of air on the heat sink. There is some like brown stuff on the heat sink but the can of air didn't get it off, is that normal? Should it just look mettallic?
I tried opening the case, I even blew a room fan on it for a minute, but it didn't drop the temp at all.
It was doing this before, right after i got it back from compaq to change a bad HD.
on load it just go's up n up till it hits in the 90's. Yesterday i installed a 4850 iceq4 card and it seems worse.
I'm not very computer savvy, what should i do?
