Dead AMD processor?

I not sure, but I suspect that my processor has died. I have a machine with an AMD xp2000 processor and when I try to boot up only the fans come on and nowt else. I tried the video card in another machine and its working and I tried the processor in another machine and it did nothing. Is the processor dead?

Hi nelliehob. It certainly sound like the processor is dead! Fortunately an XP2000 is not too expensive (depending on what you call expensive). You can get one for £46.99 inc VAT from Ebuyer click here, but as a dead processor is often the result of a dying heatsink fan, you might be better to get the retail package for £58.05 inc VAT, and this has a 3 year warranty and heatsink included click here

Thanks for that gongooer, at least the price of the processors not too dear.

Hi nelliehob this might to be a silly response but if the screen is totally dead (ie no lights)check the fuse in the monitor power supply.The reason i am telling you this is because i recently built a new pc & went to power up,nothing at all happened.the monitor & tower were dead.After hours of messing about both power supply cables had blown fuses in them.
