    PC shuts down

    I\'m having some problems with this one pc.

    It\'s an AMD duron 800mhz with one fan and 3 IDE hds. I boot it up and it works fine for about 10-30 minutes, and then it just shuts down and I can\'t turn it on again for like an hour.

    At first I thought the CPU was overheating, but it can\'t be since that should only cause a reboot or freeze the computer, not shut down the whole pc!?

    What can I do? It gets incredibly hot in my room with this pc on and then it shuts down. I have to wait till the room cools down again (It reaches almost 90 degrees fahrenheit - the room).

    What should I do? Should I buy more fans? HD coolers perhaps?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You\'re probably overheating the chipset as well as the video card, hard drive, etc. Pop open your case and point a room fan into the interior and see if that keeps you computer from locking up.
