Unhappy To install Fedora core 5 on my compaq desktop


Hi,
I am trying to install Fedora Core 5 on my desktop having a configuration of

P-3, 866 MHz
256 RAM
20 GB HDD
and Combo Drive.

Whenever i am trying to install Fedora Core 5 on my PC from the CD the installation start but after 30 sec the error comes "Uncompressing linux... loading the kernel" and msg appears as "critical temperature reached 100 C shutting down" and the system shuts down automatically. where as actually nothing is much heated even the processor has a fan the combo drive is also cool and the HDD is also cool. I even changed drive to CDROM but the problem still persist.

Please help me out with this query as to what is can be done.

Regards
Anil

There are sensors inside the PC that monitor temperature. Usually there are several of these. I don't believe a sensor could fail so badly it would give a false reading of 100 degrees C. That's 212 F, or the boiling point of water. I think there is something that needs investigation within your system. If the kernel says 100 C that doesn't mean the outside of the case will be 100 C. It means the tiny sensor under the CPU chip reads over 100 degrees Celsius. Or, that could be a bios message and not the kernel at all. I had a heat sink / fan fail on an Athlon system, suchwise that the CPU wouldn't overheat for 20 or 30 seconds. I forget exacly how long it took, but it was fast. The HSF was in the process of failing, so I got some Arctic Silver, and a new HSF. I applied the AS just like the web site tells you to, and my PC ran cooler than ever. I wouldn't mess around. Get that problem taken care of. And whatever you do, never start a machine with the HSF off the cpu.
