Question about Albatron K8T800 (K8X800 PRO LL) Motherboard
Hi, I have an Albatron K8X800 Pro II Version 1 motherboard. I purchased this new about 3 years ago. Last week it would not boot up. Voice Genie keeps saying, "Your CPU may have a problem." I began to check for problems. I removed the heatsink and fan and cleaned the thermal paste from it. I checked for any bent pins (none were found). I cleared the CMOS and put the CPU back in and it booted. It loaded the Windows XP desktop and then about 1 minute later the screen froze up. I shut down the PC and tested the power supply (all voltages were correct). I plugged the power supply back in and started the computer. Again I got, "Your CPU may have a problem." I cleared the CMOS again and tried to boot and got the same error. I then removed the heatsink and fan again and put it back in and it booted. It loaded the Windows desktop partially and then froze again. I used my other computer and downloaded the latest BIOS (R1.13). I tried booting up the computer again and got the same error. I then removed the heatsink and fan, and put it back on and it booted. I had it boot from the floppy and I updated the BIOS. After the BIOS updated I reset the computer and it booted into Windows for a couple minutes before it froze up again. Thinking that the problem was the CPU, I went and purchased a new AMD Sempron 3000+ (Socket 754). I replaced the CPU and heatsink and fan with the new one and I booted up the computer and I got, "Your CPU may have a problem" again. I do not know what else to do. I do not understand why it boots up for a minute or two if I remove and replace the heatsink and fan. I also do not understand why the "NEW" AMD Sempron 3000+ won't even boot. Any help is appreciated. 1ManClan System Specs: K8X800 Pro II Version 1 Motherboard Athlon 64 3200+ original CPU, Replacement CPU: AMD Sempron 3000+ RAM 512MB DDR PC400 Hard Drive: Seagate Barracuda 120GIG ATA Optical Drives: MSI DVD/RW and MSI 16x DVD 3 1/2 Floppy Video Card: ASUS V9560 128MB Antec SL300S 300Watt Power Supply
Have you removed all memory, other cards and unhooked all other drives to see if a short exists there? With a 300W PS some other component may be pulling too much that the CPU can't start so it tells you the problem is with the CPU or The CPU its refering to is on the video card? Good Luck, Tim
