Hi, in a previous post I said that my Atlhon was overheating, and so I changed the fan and CPU heatsink and it wouldn't boot, all that kept happening was everything powered up for 4 seconds and then it switched off. I changed the Fan&H/S back overe and the PC stays on but I get nothing, no beeps or anything. I tryed booting without the RAM, and I still got no beeps. HELP ME!
I thought you said i was getting to 80C?,when you changed the heatsink fan did you put new thermal compound on?and it the heatsink fitted flush to the cpu and the right way,i know these are silly questions but i have myself fitted them the wrong way in the past.
I run the same cpu on an msi neo platinum board, never goes beyond 50c even in the most demanding games. Does the cpu identify correctly in the bios? if you get no Bios screen you could have fried the bios chip. That cpu shouldnt run anywhere near that hot if you have correct ventilation and cooling. I have 2 intake fans at the front of my case, the cpu fan graphics card fan and a large extraction fan at the rear, and the enforce chip has it's own, sounds a lot but all are monitored by "cool and quiet" via the Bios and only run at full speed when the system reaches 45c. You may need a new cpu and mobo. sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, hope this is not the case
This is based on the worst case scenario,you may not have fried the CPU i hope not, questions remained unanswered,you also have a thread ongoing about grafix card drivers,i do hope these are not all tied to 1 pc.
Hi, I have been sleeping ove my mates so I couldn't reply. When I was replacing the CPU H/S & Fan I jarred the mobo with my screwdriver, it just hit a part of the mobo that has no chips or anything though. If the CPU was fried wouldn't the mobo beep? I don't think I've fried it. I'll have to swap it around with my Sempron to see if I can get it going. I'm hoping that at worst it's the mobo, I can easily get a new one so yeah. Thanks guy's! P.S. woodchip it is an "on-board" Speaker. P.P.S. I don't think I have enough cooling anyway, I'll add more.
