Re: How to remove the cpu from mobo.

Was the heatsink screwed into the mobo or was it clipped to the plastic? If it was screwed on the processor is soldered to the mobo and cannot be removed. If its a ZIF socket then more than likely the lever has broken off and the socket is pretty useless now, time for a new mobo.

..................My system config is : Intel C2D E7500 with 2.93 GHz CPU MOBO is Intel DG41RQ and 2gb DDR2 RAM OS is Windows XP - 32-bit (Service pack 3) .Problem is iwant to buy a new graphics card

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are clogged with dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed air to do this.

ASUS P68Z Pro V shuts down

Check the CPU cooling fan. It is running, and if so, running correctly? Check the heat sink for the CPU cooler. They get clogged with dirt and cause overheating. Use canned air and blow out the heat sink to clear it of dirt and debris. DO NOT remove the CPU cooler to clean it. There is special thermal material on the heat sink to properly transfer heat. Removal will damage this and render the fan ineffective unless you have replacement materials available.

You can usually check the CPU temperature in the BIOS to ensure that the cleaning effort has worked.

My pc fans runs constantly and the computer is hot

There are several things to look for here.
  • The CPU Heat sink (the big metal block with a fan) may not be making good contact with the CPU surface area.
  • Thermal compound may have not been applied between the CPU surface area and heat sink
  • The heat sink and fan are not sufficient enough to cool your CPU
  • Dust buildup is not allowing proper circulation of cooling air
If this system is not a name brand and covered by warranty then I would remove the heat sink (carefully) and verify that the mounting bracket is not broken or loose. I would check that ample thermal compound is applied, and if not use rubbing alcohol to remove all compound from the heat sink and CPU and purchase a tube of compound to apply yourself. I would also thoroughly clean the heat sink with compressed air.
If the heat issue continues then you will want to consider upgrading to a more powerful cooling solution.
The CPU fan should run constantly but in some systems will run between 50% and 100% speeds assuming a variable temperature control is applied to the system via motherboard or third party installation.

I put a new power supply & heatsink with fan in my system & now I can't get it to power on. The heat sink was VERY hard to get on. I even put the old power supply back in & it won't power on....

If your CPU is sticked on the heat sink due to heat sink cement, could have damaged your CPU pins. Those CPUs like AMD and IBM Desktops we need to unassembled the same by tilting method. If your CPU pins are damaged, remove your CPU from heat sink by the help of a chisel type screw driver and clean both faces of heat sink and CPU. Do not scratch, use isopropyl alcohol to remove heat sink cement. Inspect any pins are dented or damaged. Align pins, if broken solder with help of a goldsmith. Reinsert the CPU in motherboard socket, apply a little portion heat sink cement in cpu face and re fix heat sink and recheck the motherboard.

Cpu fan not working

If the CPU fan is actually spinning (make sure you're looking at the right one - it should be the fan mounted directly onto a big circular heat sink near the top of your motherboard), then it sounds like your mobo has a faulty sensor. If it's still under warranty, get it changed for a new one.

Pentium D problem

Hi oilian,
Be glad it did shut down. If it didn't, your new CPU could haveover heated. There are a few reasons for a CPU to over heat.
1.) There is no thermal grease or too little on the heat-sink assembly.
2.) The old thermal grease was not removed or the old thermal tape was not removed.
3.) The heat-sink assembly was not cleaned completely with alcohol before applying new thermal grease.
4.) The CPU fan is running too slowly.
5.) The heat-sink fins are possibly filled with dust build-up & the CPU fan can not cool the heat-sink assembly. Boot to the bios & go to Hardware Monitor. There you can check voltage, CPU fan speed, CPU temp & other bios monitored settings.

Good luck oilian!

The power on my pc keeps recycling

remove all hardware except RAM n CPU and then try it if the system gives you a disply then add all hardware 1 by 1 and keep checkin this way you can find the problem with the harware compatibility if the system wont disply then check the mobo for RAMs and CPU respectively if the problem presists then you have the BAD BOARD.-
