Yes it can. Just you need to buy a new one that your motherboard supports and has the socket size for.

I have ( IBM ThinkCentre 80847eg ) after starting power it shutdown automaticly after 30 seconds so i push power button again ,then it takes 3 minutes to get windows logo . so what's the problem


OverheatingWhen the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

Hp desktop keeps crashing


Agreed not a lot of info, but you may not know what is going on, so s'okay.

There are three main reasons for desktop computer failure;

1) The computer is dirty inside.
Over 80 percent of the personal computers in my shop, suffer from this 'ailment'.

What happens?
The Processor overheats, and turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
This is because there is a fail safe feature built-in. Keeps the Processor from burning up.

The hardware components inside your desktop computer, (i.e., Processor, motherboard chipset, Ram Memory, graphics chipset, {Integrated graphics}, or graphics card, etc.), are cooled by AIR.

When dust, dirt, hair, food crumbs, spider webs,you name it; clog the cooling system for the computer, the temperature inside goes up tremendously. Especially for the Processor.

[ I just cleaned out an old Dell desktop computer, for a store. Worst one I have seen in 14 years. Had 3/4 of an Inch of hair, dust, dirt, and junk, on the bottom of the computer case. The computer case fans were so clogged with 'dust bunnies', I could NOT see them. The Processor fan was one dust ball, and the Heatsink underneath looked like a solid block. Couldn't see the fins.

Q-tips, a soft small brush, and THREE cans of compressed air for computers, later, the computer is working fine again ]

Start with this, then if it does not sure the problem, state back in a Comment.

ONE:
Unplug the computer from power.

TWO: FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
(Don't know? State in a Comment)

THREE: Post the computer manufacturer NAME, and Model Number. I'll tell you how to open the computer case.

(It's on the back of the computer case, (Tower), next to the Windows product key, OR up on the side of the computer tower.
For an HP, or Compaq computer it is the Product Number.
It is in the white Service Tag, and is P/N )

The heat sink may be clogged with dust and ifthe BIOS temperature sensor controls the fan speed then it may be compensatingfor the reduced cooling by the dust build-up.
Your CPU fanmay be faulty and not spinning freely, in this case replace the fan.
Check the fan and heat sink assembly and remove the dust, loosen the dust anduse a can of compressed air to clear away the dust.

My computers turns off by itself after being on for a while. what to do?


The computer will shut down if the CPU overheats, this is known as thermal shutdow. If this is not fixed, eventually the CPU will fail.
This problem is caused by either a faulty CPU fan or the CPU fan and heatsink are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan, if it doesn't spin freely, then replace the fan.
If the fan and heatsink assembly is clogged with dust, then remove the dust and blow the dust off the heatsink with a can of compressed air.

This could be a memory problem.

Try this, download memtest x86+:

http://www.memtest.org/download/2.11/memtest86+-2.11.iso.zip

Unzip it and burn the iso to a CD using the burn image to disc option.

Place the CD in the tray of the computer and the program will start up itself. (If it does not then you will need set your computer to boot from your CD ROM Drive in the BIOS. At the VAIO screen it should say press F2 to enter setup. (Maybe it is something other than F2 but I think it is F2 on a Sony). In the bios there should be a menu that says boot or boot order and there you will see your CD Drive. Make sure it is higher than your hard drive on the list. Normally it is by default so you shouldn't really need to do this bit.

If there are errors when the program starts running the checks then it is a memory problem. If you are capable then you should remove each of your RAM modules individually (If you have more than one, If not then contact Sony if you still have warranty and order a replacement). Then start the machine and run the CD again. If you have one RAM stick that fails and another that doesn't then you have found the broken RAM. You can contact Sony and ask for a replacement if you are still within warranty.

I hope this helps you out,
Adam.
