Default CPU Problems

Hi
One problem i am having is that the temperature of the CPU continues increasing until the power is turned off.

I have tried reapplying the thermal paste and clearing the fan out, however the CPU temperature still increases.

Another problem i have is the keyboard does not work at the windows login screen. I have tired the other USB ports, but it makes no difference.
P.S

is it software that is telling you that your CPU is over heating or have you checked in the bios see if the temps are actually going up as for the keyboard have you tried a different one as you may need to install drivers for certain keyboards if you have windows 7 should be find once you boot up into the desktop plug it in and should find drivers on its own and install them for you.

It is the BIOS that is telling me this.

I have tried the different keyboard and none made a difference.
I have tried to repair windows XP by running the installation cd, however this came across the error with the CPU overheating and turning off.
