  • Hi,

     

    CPU overheat can be caused by several factors:

     

    ·          Hardware problem such as bad fan, instable hard disk.

    ·          Incompatible device driver which occupies much CPU resource.

    ·          Virus or spyware infect

     

    To resolve this problem, I would like to suggest:

     

    1.     Right click the taskbar, click Start Task Manager to see how much CPU && Memory is used. Try manually end some processes.

    2.     Update the security software and perform a full scan.

    3.     Update the device drivers, you can download them from the following link:

    4.     Contact the computer repair company to clear the fan or do some other hardware tests.

     

    Best Regards

  • Is the CPU always running at full speed/power? Try to make a BIOS update to let Windows 7 use the Power saving features of the CPU.
