Okay, so I've been having a bit of a problem with my Windows 98 machine. Today while just poking around in the BIOS, I noticed the numbers we all good in the PC Health Section except for one, the CPU Vcore -5V was being reported around -61.69V. That's DEFINITELY not right. So, what could this be, a power supply issue or the CPU going bad? The computer itself seems to work okay most of the time except lately sometimes it seems to lock up for no reason. But I just put this board into a different case with a different power supply so I do not know the history of this power supply too much. So it could've been doing this with the other case and power supply as well but I do not know. Although the CPU seemed to be running a bit hot at almost 130F at idle. So what should I look into first? Suggestions?
Edit: It's a Pentium 4 Northwood 2.6GHz processor. It was overclocked slightly at one time but I have since loaded optimized values in the BIOS and that made no difference to this issue. I've heard Northwoods were a bit fussy.
