First of all, I'd like to say I'm fairly computer illiterate, so please excuse any ignorance I may show here.

As of late, my computer has shut itself down a few times, followed by an alarm/beeping noise for a few minutes, for the most part while running games (That I had run before, no problem). After a bit of research, it seemed this may have been caused by overheating, so I looked into checking temperatures.

I downloaded two programs to test this, PC Wizard 2006 and Everest Home Edition, but the results seem to be different with each program. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
