    Should you put grease on top of processors then the fan or does it need it?silver grease.

Hi there.
Try clearing the cmos
Boot up - d015d7b.jpg<<<<< you will see in the picture a plastic jumper (in this case coloured green), move it to the other position and hit the on/off button, then put it back in its original position and power up the machine again. Hopefully the issue will have been sorted. If there is no jumper remove the battery for an hour and make sure the power cord is removed from the back before you clear the cmos

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

    Yes its silver heat sync compound that goes on top of processors, this ensures that the heat is dispersed evenly

Well, first you should check wether the fan actually starts when you turn on the pc. If it doesnt your cpu will be overheated in no-time, causing the pc to reboot. That fan then probably has the wrong voltage, or requires to much power, which your power supply may not be able to provide.

If it works, you should try to find out how powerful this fan is, meaning how much air it moves per minute. If this fan is less powerful than the previous one, your cpu will be overheated.

If neither of these solutions apply, I guess you should contact your vendor and request replacement. It may be just the fan that's broken.

Instantly shutdown


This sounds like it could be a heat issue. When you're in windows, you're using the processor more than if it just sits idle in BIOS. Using your cpu creates more heat. Make sure there is no dust in the fan or the heatsink on the cpu. Also, remove the heatsink and clean the old thermal grease compound off the heatsink and cpu and reapply fresh thermal grease.

I am not able to boot from cdrom of my system


Enter pc bios. can you see your cdrom listed in the MAIN menue? Goto Boot. Set your cdrom to first boot device.
Make sure you have a bootable CD in the cdrom. Still can't boot to the cdrom? Think about swapping it out or getting a new one.

Your CPU may have a problem


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
