Okay, first let me start off by saying I bought my computer, a Dell XPS, a year ago.
I play a lot of PC games but my PC locks up and crashes a lot. Which shouldn\'t really happen seeing as how when I bought it, it had enough memory and processing power where I shouldn\'t have to worry about that sort of thing. I started thinking it was the individual games that did it so I usually just let it go.
Now that it\'s christmas time, I want to upgrade a few components of my PC. I thought this would also be a good time to look into why it doesn\'t work as well as I believe it should. So I had an idea that it might be the cooling.
I downloaded and installed Mother Board Monitor and checked the readouts. Now on the dashboard there are 3 gauges for fans and they\'re all at 0 RPM.
I\'m sitting here thinking whats going on, so, if anyone has any info it would help me out.
