Sometimes,when i turn on my computer after 10-12 hours, it turns off within 2-3 sec's.When i turn it on again a small melodic beep is heard and the system turns off yet again...after repeating this procedure the computer finally turns on and at POST it is displayed that "...the computer was shutdown due to overheating,press F4 to continue to run setup".
Now the temp's these days in our city are very low and turning the system ON after 12 hours shouldn't heat up the system within 2 sec's!
Intel says that probably the heat sensor is faulty.
My System specs are as under:
Intel D865PERL Board, 2.8GHz HT processor, Geforce 6600GT garfix card, 1GB RAM,400W PSU.
What do you guys think?

AND one more thing, the INTEL ACTIVE MONITOR , during my windows session works fine...i mean the temperature rises and falls depending upon CPU usage!

I may be mistaken, but I think your PS is too low to handle the combined GUI and CPU. Perhaps the sensor is surging when you turn it on due to a surge in voltage from the capacitors. The temp sensors not only turn off with a given temp, but also sharp increases in temp.
Or I'm mistaken. Intel guys have the jobs where they can test this stuff, but they're also inherently lazy.

my mate had the same problem, his problem was the cpu fan - the sensor cable was not making contact with the mobo properly - try a new fan or disable rpm alarm in the bios see if it helps
