AMD 64 overheats when booted into BIOS
Posted on 2006-11-07
This is just not my week for overheating issues...First my Dell laptop...then my Subaru Outback...now my AMD desktop...
I have an AMD 64 X2 4800+ CPU on an ASUS A8N SLI32 Deluxe mobo. When I boot up the computer into Windows XP 64 it consistently runs at around 40 degrees celsius.
When I boot the computer and enter the BIOS, and go to the temperature monitor, I watch the temperature rise up to 70degrees celsius and then the computer auto-shuts down. Obviously since it runs fine when in the OS, it is not a life or death matter, but I can't go into BIOS and stay there very long and I'm trying to configure the RAID settings.
