: I have a PC CPU with a Cyrix 266 chip that has been a great computer for a long time. I was having problems with spontaneous reboots... for no reason. I would be in the middle of an application or not doing anything and the screen would go blank and the computer would restart.
: I opened the case to see my CPU fan barely spinning. Could this be an overheating problem? I reformatted the hard disk and reinstalled Windows 98, only to have the same problem. There are no conflicts, viruses or driver problems.
: Is this CPU dead? Did the heat KO the chip?
: Thoughts would be appreciated.
