Does your computer tell you this without a manual? I have a Compaq Presario 5000 in case anyone else wants to find out.
A Michael FoxtrotSee if you have a program that tells you your temps. I have HWDoctor that came with my Motherboard. It tells me my CPU temps, it also allows me to adjust the speeds of my CPU fan and my Chasis fans as well. I don't know if HWDoctor is something you can DL for free. There must be other programs out there that you can DL, but I'm not sure
If I do have one, where can I find it?
as far as i know, no, you would need to get the manual for the mother board. or contact compaq, with your serial number they may be able to look that info up for you.
Well I don't have the manual anymore. I searched for hours. This might help: I can really hear the fan go. It can be noisy at times and my old Dell Dimension XPS R450 is suprisingly quiter.
i know nothing about prefabed computers, as in what they use for hardware. I built my own. best bet is to contact the manufacturer, with the serial/modle number usually on the back of the computer, on a sticker.
Do you think anyone in these forums would know what that means?
I see CPU coolers for Pentium 4's are only $20 - $40. Is it worth trying?
Is there a prgram that will show your FPS in any game???
My FPS in most games are 30 to 70.
I go into a server, and I have an FPS from 30-50-70 depending on how good the server is. Then suddenly, my FPS drops to 3-6 frames per 20 seconds. Then goes back to 30-50-70. These FPS drops do not happen because I am in a big firefight or I am in a dense forest. It happens so often that I can almost tell when it's going to start. Rather than this huge problem, my games run smoothly(the only game that has never done this is Call of Duty).
