    the Mboard has got a onboard video card. I havent tried fixing another video card yet. Will let you know the result as soon as i test so. But another question that I have is, even though the video is faulty, while boothing up, the cpu will give a beep sound isnt. I dint hear that sound which made me assume that the system isnt booting..any ideas due to this?

    A single beep that you haven't heard before? I'm guessing that the system is giving you an error message or warning that obviously can't be seen due to the video issue. Does it sound like it continues to load after that? Do you have to hit Enter to get it to keep going or can you even tell if there is any activity after that?

    Since you know the computer is starting up and another working monitor doesn't work either, we can assume the video capabilities are bad. If you haven't installed a separate video card, most likely the onboard video is bad. I am assuming it's not a high end PC that came with a separate graphics card. If a friend has a video card laying around, you can plug that into a slot on the motherboard to give it a try. You can tell if you have onboard video because your monitor will plug into the same area as your ethernet cord, USB ports, and mouse and keyboard. Video cards are in an area farther away where those removable metal tabs are for expansion cards. There are some low end video cards that are available for less than $30 and I've even found a few for around $15. Definitely not for high end gaming but perfect for the web and applications.
    Let me know what comes from this info.

    Do you have a second monitor you can switch out? Have you checked the monitor itself to make sure it's not set for digital vs. analog (or vice-versa)? Are all cables and plugs tight and secure? Let me know what you come up with and we'll take it from there.

If no beeps (remove the RAM and for sure has to beep if the motherboard is OK) at all and no video signal you may look to:
1. a new PS - power supply or
2. a new CPU or
3. a new motherboard.

Is there a cpu upgrade for an hp pavilion 6835 with a motherboard 115561 cognac 20000731

The fastest Pentium 3 that will work in your board is a Intel Pentium III 1GHz chip. Here is a link to the specs:

You could also get a Intel Celeron 1.1 GHz but it only has half the level 2 cache size so it's actually a bit slower than the Pentium III 1GHz chip.

I buy recently a new procesors exactly GENUINE INTEL (R) CPU 2160 @ 1.80 Ghz and when i installed everything works corectly but when I play a game itself a alarm on the CPU.

The alarm on the CPU is either a heat warning or a fan warning. Check the settings in your BIOS and verify that your settings are set high enough for your CPU. If your fan is working and your heat level is appropriate than you should either set your heat alarm and fan alarm to a higher level or disable them all together.

How to recover my intel pentium D 2.8ghz processor its over heating of 70 degrees.

If your system is five years old or older it is possible that the thermal grease/tape has dried and will need replaced. There is no need to remove the CPU for this. If you can enter your bios you can also check the fan speed of your CPU heatsink fan rpm. It should run between 2800rpm and as high as 3500rpm. If its not than replace your heatsink assembly.

Toshiba a30-931 what is largest posible cpu

Franky_J knows nothing you could go for a P4 2.8 cpu which would work much better than the Celeron in fack any P4 over 2.0 would out perform the celeron if you want speed get rid of the Celeron and get a P4 it should take up to an 3.2 P4 chip.

Franky if you dont understand cpu's then you shouldn't really be answering this question in the cpu world a 2.8 ghz cpu is not always a 2.8ghz cpu for instance this one has half the cash of a P4 cpu meaning it can only do half the work at the same time so in P4 terms this is only a 1.8 P4 equivilent so a 2.8 P4 will be a big improvement.

Cpu overheat

Todays CPU fans are set to automatically up their RPMs if the processor overheats or is overtaxed. But the trick is when the fan itself is not cooling enough but rotates and makes this sound like a heicopter. Since you see it turning, you may not realise its cooling is poor. The best and long last solution is get a brand new fan and install it. The baby will stop crying.

Good luck.

I have a Boot Problem with my INTEL P4 3.0Ghz. 800Mhz FSB,1M L2 Cache, Socket 478 CPU

I have experienced something similar with my new Core2Duo processor and a fairly new Socket 775 processor. Troubleshooting it led me to believe the CPU simply wasn't compatible with the motherboard. Although it's a shot in the dark, I suggest that you try out some of the following: - Did you try pulling out the graphics card to see if you got it to POST then? The graphics card or the monitor may need replacing. - Did you remove the RAM? - Are you sure all cables are attached properly? - Try to take out the CPU, talk to a friend with a socket 478 motherboard and replace his CPU with your CPU. Does it work now? If yes, motherboard needs to be replaced.
