Question about Computer Processors
Unpluged hard drive and system attemps to run. Plug in hard drive and the system will not start. Have tested the hard drive on another computer and the other computer sees the hard drive.
Tips for a great answer:
Test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle of restarting or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive power and data cables IDE SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your dvd\cd floppy drives have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
computers need power and data to travel through every working device to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
even something as small as a faulty electrical or fan lead can cause you problems
motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail
check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
check you CPU central processing unit make sure its securely seated and has thermal paste it might be getting to hot the thermal paste will help disperse the heat
Thermal compound is a sticky paste that is placed directly onto the CPU.
Allowing for a more direct heat transfer between the CPU and HEAT SINK and preventing air gaps from forming between the CPU and heat sink.
hope this helps
