My CPU with i3 - 2100 is showing 91C at booting window. I noticed it after I cleaned motherboard and fans. After this PC started showing boot menu with F1 key. Can any one help me ?

Sounds like your processor cooling solution is not working properly. Look at:

  • Fan is properly plugged into 4-pin motherboard header and spinning properly.
  • Heatsink is properly attached to motherboard and tight against processor.​
  • Fan speed control programming in BIOS Setup is not mucked up (try resetting to BIOS defaults).

Hope this helps,
