Hi Everyone, i would love some help with a problem , i have an Alienware area 51 R-2 desktop, it was bought maybe 4 years ago , it was used for maybe 8 months with no problems. then left idle ( unstated) for 3 years , until the other day. once started it worked fine for maybe 10 mins then restarted itself, it booted fine and then restarted again after 5 mins , after restart the amount of time it lasted decreased, until finally it was restarting before the splash screen, until i turned it off completely. im thinking its an CPU over heating problem the fan is spinning fine but maybe the Radiator is blocked or the cooler in the end of the hoses i have read forums that say it could be the power supply wattage, but it has a 850w PSU so i dont think its that as it work fine for months ,
what do you think?
can the cooling system on these be flushed?
is there a model number on them if it cant be flushed ,so i can maybe buy a new on ?
any help would be great thanks
