    It's an overtemp warning so you won't destroy the board.
    The CPU current draw is exceeding the ability of your mainboard to supply it with power.

    It could help a lot if you can describe your PC hardware like the CPU, motherboard and graphic card if present... seems that the CPU is getting hot, maybe the CPU fan isn't working properly, could be dust or faulty hardware. I always have the CPU fan of my PC set to auto to avoid any temp problem.

    Let me guess you are using a MSI Board? MSI released a Bios Update and it appears it did more bad then good. Your board and CPU where just fine Up till 4 days..

    The only solution is to flash an earlier BIOS to the system. I can't help you find it, though, but if you updated it, go back to where you got the BIOS file, and most manufacturers keep several versions available. Go back to the one previous to the one you flashed and try that.
