My laptop does the same thing. When it wakes up from sleeping, the bios thinks the cpu is at 86degC, and the fan kicks into super overdrive mode. I just hit function-Z to reset the bios on the laptop. Not sure how to do that on a desktop. Seach google for info on this, that's how I found it but I don't remember the link.
Originally posted by trickykid There is no way your cpu could be running at 86 degrees celcius. I had a p233 once and the fan died causing the cpu and motherboard to burn up in about an hour roughly afterwards... So if your machine can actually run for a short time at 86 degrees celcius, I would be amazed as something is giving you false info on the actual temp. But don't get me wrong, reboots like your explaining could be caused by overheating most likely.
I installed slackware 8.1 last week using a bare p200. Then the damn thing burnt my finger afterwards. I got the message and heatsinked it but it was going hard for a good two hours.
