Nvidia Geforce 5600 AGP"
Right there you see this is an older machine. These are great things but how do you share that a CPU overheat can damage that chip? And how would you get the owner to accept that maybe this machine's time has come? While we can try a new chip a great shop would draw the line at 5 year parts and change out what is older than that.
And that's the problem. How to work with older gear without blowing a budget.
OK, I hate having to ask this. I usually can find what I need on searches but this one doesn't show up and I have logged way too many hours trying to find it.
Here's the info.
Daily BSODs. (Mostly while online, BUT not always)
0x000000008e (ox00000005, 0x8058ED8C, 0xBA34F924, 0x0000000)
I have found a few hits about video cards, sound cards and overheating but dont know if I'm on the right track.
I run SpeedFan and It helps keep everything running on the cool side.
My prior CPU fan failed a while back and the chip got SUPER Hot quite a few times.
It has the OEM 2.66mhz chipset(have a brand new 3.06 to install, but don't want to drop it in until I resolve the current BSOD issue. Not sure if past overheating problems are still a current issue.
Here's the specs
HP 864n Media Center Edition
Windows Update is set on Auto.
