I thought about that earlier but this bios seems to be lacking that too. It has some CPU info but not the temp. :/ Resetting bios now to see if it's an irq problem.
Reset the bios but no luck. Still doing the same thing.
On the over temp issue, it should be over temp at start up should it? Could it have gotten too hot at some point and now the CPU is dead? Would it still make it to the XP splash screen if this were the case?
