Title:

The CPU heats up and then computer shuts off

Text:

Even while the computer is just sitting there on, eventually it heats up to a point and then shuts down... I have temperature monitor lite program running and it has the cpu temp running around 80c when it shuts down the hard drive is staying around 35c and the fans start to really scream when its getting hotter... im assuming its a fan problem but i wasnt sure if anybody else had something similar happen and they were able to fix it...

Thanks!
