For a couple of years, my Old Computer always did a Big Beep upon Booting Up and the Message 'Processor Fan Not Detected'. I figured that might be the reason why my Old Computer started doing Suddenly Serious Error Crashes last May.
So I found an Old Dead Computer in the Dumpster and it still had a Processor Fan in it. So I grabbed it and Sunday Morning, I put the Used Processor Fan into my Old Computer after it did one of its Sudden Crashes.
I found that the Processor Heat Sinks were So Hot that you could Cook An Egg on it! So I concluded that it was because of the Processor getting Overheated that was causing it to Crash.
So I put in the Replacement Processor Fan and after Booting Up, did not do the 'Processor Fan Not Detected' Message anymore and the New Fan Whirred Away fine.
But after a couple of Hours, the Computer once again did its Sudden Crash again.
So I guess it is back to Plan A of shopping around for another New Computer with Windows 10 on it.

Very little will work with Windows XP these days, because it is obsolete - and a security risk.
There is a fix that can still access Microsoft support for XP. So many organisations (Like the Police and NHS) still actually use it. I've got a little Atom Processor Netbook that runs XP and still gets updates. It is pointless now though...
