With nothing attached to the mother board except 1 stick of RAM in the first slot the power supply and monitor attached, and then  it still turns off ; I would make sure the heat sink was clean Reseat the Cpu and try it again. Now if the same results. I would attempt to substitute a different known good power supply. If that would not work, you are down to substituting a different CPU .

Laptop stops wafter some working heating


I THINK you mean, Laptop stops working after heating up... If that is so, that means your Cooling system is not functioning, and the computer has turned itself off to protect your MOTHERBOARD, CPU, RAM and HDD from heat damage. Which means, you can likely get your cooling fan replaced in a shop for about 100 bucks (outside of warranty) and have your pc back the way it was when you got it new.

I have a travelmate 240 which as now burnt out two cpu's . the fan stops running after 6 seconds does this mean its the fan at fault or the motherboard thanks ****


the problem is probably with the motherboard. it may be passing too much power to the fan thus causing the fan motor to burn out. the cpu burn out is usually a result of cpu not cooling properly, either because the fan is not working or the white gel between the heat sink and cpu is finished.

COMPUTER WON'T POWER UP


Hi,
Three are a couple things you can check/try. Remove the memory, (If you have more than one DIMM load only one). Boot the system. Try each dimm in turn one by one. If your board is old. I see three ISA slots on the board, so it's old. It is possible the thermal tap or thermal grease may have dried up. (This will cause your CPU to overheat & shut down). The grease is located between the heatsink assembly & the CPU. Remove the heatsink assembly. Take a clean rag with a little alcohol on it & wipe off all old thermal grease. (Care full, do not over soak the rag & do not scratch either surface, heatsink or CPU). Double check all connections while in the case. Try booting again. Most CPU fans last for 50,000Hrs or five years. If the steps above did not help, you may need a new heatsink assembly, this will come with a new fan. Lastly, if all of the above has not helped. Check the voltage of the cmos/bios battery. It should test 3volts DC. If it test under replace it. On the outside shot, if you have done all of the above try another known to be good power supply. (If your CPU was bad nothing would turn on, not even the fan).
Give it a once over!

Good luck lieutenant_1!
