next time you restart your computer check in your bios for a section called motherboard health or pc health ( or something similar), hopefully it will have the temp in there. keep in mind this will be at idle, so your temp will be lower than if you have it under a load. check around the net, like at some pentium forums and such, for acceptable heat ranges for that processor and go from there.

Sorry, I'd help you more, but I've always been an amd man myself, so I'm not sure what the acceptable temps are for that proc.

I thought it was a mandrake thing. I had no problems with windows. Thuoght mandrake Was over working it. but maybe it always happened and I just never knew about it. Thanks for your help. I appreciate it al ot. Do you recommend any Linux distributes that are better then mandrake. It seems a tab buggy even for a beta 10.2 beta 3. How do you open exes for linux in linux? I try to oppen them and nothing happens. Its an elf exe It hink. Thanks again. If you do receommend another linux. I would appreciate it if its easy to install as Mandrake.

My take has always been try out different ones and see what you like. There are alot of different distro's out there all with pros and cons and meet different needs in different ways. Disto's like Mandrake ( use rpm, graphical installer, etc..) include Suse and Fedora Core, so you could look into them.

as far as your exe problem, depends on what it is. linux doesn't have extensions on executables ( like program.exe), most of your elf executables will just be the name of the file itself. But there are others, like scripts that look and act like executables ( you can run them) but are not actually exe's.

Check your bios see if there is a option to shut your computer off when it hits a certian temp. I have mine cut off at 140 degrees. I have a pentium 4 at 2.4ghz. That way when you do see that message and your computer hasnt shut down you know your cpu is okay.
