Open the case and clean the dust out of the fans and the heatsink.
Use compressed air, don't point the can down, always straight.
Never touch anything in the case without grounding yourself first, you can short out the entire machine. Just touch the p/s or get an anti static strap.
No vacuum.

When you blow the air on the fans, stick a straw in the fan so it doesn't spin, if you make it spin you can ruin the bearings.

Buy a fan and install it on the back grid of the case to blow out.

If you can install one in front also to blow in cool air that would be great.
the rear is important.
It's very easy and cost $20. Get an Antec.

No I'm not sure it's the problem or the fix but don't you think it would be nice to clean it every so often.

Yes there are apps that show you the temperature.
If you have an Intel setup you can go to their site and get active monitor, the one for your computer. Be sure you get the right one.

There is one for AMD also, elsewhere...we talk about one in the Hardware Forum.

I have and use Intel and use the temp monitor made for Core2Duo not for P-4.

lol that bought back memories of when I was training in school. I was on work experience in a computer repair shop and was told to put one finger in my ear to stop shocks. I believed it for about 2 years.
