I think something on my motherboard is overheating, need assistance!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! I'm new here and I'm not completely into hardware myself but I am in real need of assistance from you guys!
Lately I've been experiencing blue-screens and crashes from my PC, at first I thought it was a virus but I think I've completely ruled out that possibility.
Someone suggested it might be one of my hardware parts finally giving out, and it won't surprise me as most parts in this PC is relatively old, around 4-5 years if I a had to guess.
So lately I started running hardware stress tests and temperature programs like HWMonitor and that's when I noticed it.

Apparently in the motherboard section it says my TMPIN0 and TMPIN1 are running at temperatures that made even me raise an eyebrow.
Both of them are running at 128 Celsius on idle while everything else on my PC runs below 50-60 at idle.
So I've checked around on the internet on forums what this possibly could be and I heard it can be different things for different motherboards so my motherboard is a ECS G31T-M7 and I want you guys to help me figure out what that exactly is?
And yes I have googled my motherboard and tried to figure it out myself but I'm not a hardware specialist, I couldn't find anything and I don't even know what to look for really.
Please just tell me if you want me to provide more information for you guys in whatever way you want.

Summary
On my ECS G31T-M7 motherboard my TMPIN0 and TMPIN1 are overheating at 128 Celsius on idle resulting in slowing down my PC to a blue-screen halt and crashing numerous times. I'm not a hardware specialist, and I don't know how to figure out what that is on my motherboard. Can anyone tell me what it could be and tell me what I need to do please?



Thank you soooo much for future help!

Cant say i know what those are either, but that sounds much to high. Id pull it apart and give everything a good cleaning to see if it helps.

Sorry for the late reply.
Thanks guys! I'll try that out seeing as it's still crashing and giving out the same temperatures.
Let you guys know if I finally found out what it was causing it stuff.

Your parts aren't actually at 128C. It's just a bug in hwinfo. It reads those same temps for me too.

there are only 3 things on your board that produce heat

cpu, north bridge and south bridge

touch your north bridge heat sink and see if it is hot, do the same to the south bridge.

if you are able to, pull the heatsink of the north bridge and inspect the thermal material or clean and reapply.

also put your hand around the vrm section by the cpu and see if you feel heat.

I would run a memory test to make sure none of your memory modules are bad.
A failing power supply can also cause blue screens and crashes.

Hey guys! Thanks for all the replies, and sorry for my late one!
So I still haven't fixed my PC, don't have enough money I guess lol.
But anyway I think you guys are right, this isn't a heat problem, this might end up being something like the power supply like Lunk says!
Because whenever I start my PC it takes forever around the start screen and when it does finally load up, random hard drives doesn't always boot up.
And even if they did they randomly shut down after awhile especially after being written to or read.
It can't be a failing hard drive because I have 4 hard drives and it does this to all of them.
It might even be a virus because it seems to be happening one by one to them.

Having 4 hard drives will also slow down your system.

Also check the health of your hard drives using the program here

http://crystalmark.info/download/index-e.html

It will tell you if one of your drives is unhealthy.
