I installed a new CPU yesterday a sempron 2800+ all went well the cpu was recognised in the bios and in windows,now evry 10/15 minutes the pc goes off,doesnt shut down the screen goes blank,and says no signal and my modem lights go out but the fans keep going i can open/close the cd tray,i have to shut down with the button,but when i resart the pc works ok for a limited time then goes off again,what can cause this?
Temps seem fine, CPU heading for 70C would be a worry but that looks OK at the moment, still keep an eye on it though. If the chip was overheating, shutting down and leaving the fans running would be a sensible bit of design I would have thought. What CPU did you replace?
I replaced an 1800xp chip to the sempron the bios adjusted automatically to the sempron,i have the side off the pc and all looks well but it goes off at any time. Power goes from all things would the cpu shut down cause this?
