This computter was working fine. I took the covers off to clean out the dust due to the temp getting high. Not near the danger point, but rising over time. Sinve then, the CMOS reports a checksum error about the processor speeds. I've rest the COMOS, Still, the same problem. This board has two 1000 Mz coppermine processors and 2 GB ram. I'l lost here. Reomved both processors, ran one at a time in another PC. They run fine. And help would be appreciated greatly.

Re: VP6 board reporting incorrect CPU speed
Ok I am going to reach on this, I remember those boards, I think what you did was knock off a jumper on the board that sets the speed on those processors, but first check that you put the jumper on the cmos back the way it was, you may have cleared the cmos and not returned the jumper to the default position, take the battery out and check the jumper again, it should be one or the other. if you find a couple of pins that are bare on the board, the jumper that I mentioned at first may have fell off when you cleaned it.

It could be overheating. After it shuts down, restart it, and enter BIOS SETUP, and look for a "PC Health" or "Status" entry on the menu. If you're lucky, it will report the current CPU temperature, and the speed of the fans, and the settable temperature at which it will shut itself down.
Check the capacitors on the motherboard -- any capacitor with a "dome" on top, instead of perfectly-flat, is a leaking capacitor that is intermittently failing.
it sounds like a faulty heat sensor. 105c is VERY hot, and would burn your hand if you touched it(as you probably know). If the heat sensor is faulty then you won't be able to see the actual temp. If you're very handy with a soldering iron and aren't scared you can probably replace it yourself. If it's still under warranty I'd try to get a replacement.
Hi, this is'nt a solution but more of a suggestion, if your sure there isn't a hardware fault (voltage regulator?) then perhaps a bios flash may be needed. I've come across Asus mobo which have incorrectly reported temperatures and this has been fixed by flashing.
the problem is that the mother board you are now using has a 4th wire that sences cpu temp this allow the heat sink fan to change speed to get this to work correctly you will need to replace the fan with a 4 wire style. what is happening is your not getting a temp siginal back to motherboard so the fan controller think it hot and send full power to fan alll the time the stock fan in hp systems is not very good any way .Get a good heat sink and fan to fit your new board ebay has them very cheap 5.00 to 20.00 this will all so increase you system temp and all get the proper cooling when you really need it.
Hello niceguy_jes2, click on this link for the ambulance like sound beep description: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm "High frequency beeps while running". "Check the CPU fan for proper operation. Check the case for proper air flow". First item to check would be CPU's fan speed. To do this, enter your bios menu. Listed there is "H/W Monitor". Open it. Check the fan speed, CPU temperature & mother board temp. Chances are the CPU fan is turning too slow & it may need to be replaced. (No less than 2300RPM's). Average CPU fan's spin at 3000 plus). Next item if CPU fan is ok. The thermal grease between the heat-sink & CPU may have dried up over time & cause the CPU to get too hot. You may need to remove the CPU & heat-sink assembly. Clean off all old thermal grease from the bottom of the heat-sink & from the CPU. If you do this, do not scratch either surface. Use house hold alcohol on a clean rag & wipe away all old thermal grease. Apply a tiny amount of new thermal grease. Re-assemble & check through bios H/W monitor, CPU temp. One or the other will stop the system beeps. Link to MSI: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=manual&maincat_no=1&prod_no=237
Good luck niceguy_jes2! Post if there are troubles. Thank you for using fixya. Mike
Chances are the CPU fan may be running too slow, dust & dirt build up under & over the fan blades can be a big factor. CPU fan could just be going. Are you over clocking the system. (IF so buy a better heatsink & fan for over clocking the system).
To check if CPU is getting too hot. Enter the bios & go to the title, "Power" page 2-28. Open Hardware monitor & check the CPU temp & mother board temp. (Make sure the case is closed in normal running conditions).
