Jesus, what is that 85C for, prob the CPU, get a aftermarket heatsink/fan for that.

Check for spyware/virus etc...

If that doesnt work, try a repair.

holy crap 85C????? well theres your problem!!! im going to assume thats the graphics card since speedfan doesnt tell u which is which, u need to take the heatsink off the card, clean off all the thermal paste and replace it with artic silver 5, if that doesnt work then u will need to buy a new heatsink

i really doubt its the cpu, no cpu can take temps that high without blowing up, im certain its the graphics card since nothing else in a comp can take it

Huh, in the older days I didnt have a fan on the CPU, and that was hitting 90-95C - and thats working fine.

Is the video card onboard, or is a seperate offboard card?
