Check the clamp of the cooling fan. If the clamp is not engaged, heat sink didn't take the heat away from the micro processor causing CPU over heating.

It may be because , your heatsink is not fixed properly, to the chips aluminium base due to loose clamping, or it may be due to lack of thermal grease(a chemical compound meant to libricate the heat transfer between the cpu and heat sink) Most probably, the second case would solve it, if not your heatsink is not fixed tightly to the base(cpu)

Try just one stick of memory, then another, most likely you have bad RAM.

Can be a destroyed CPU from overheating as well.

I have quite a lot of experience building PCs. Have just installed Asus P5E3 MoBo Core2 Duo E8400 CPU 2MB OCZ DDR3-1333 memory. It will not power up properly. All fans spin up briefly and HDD LCD...

that's the issue..BIOS may need to flash the BIOS...adding all those components, can make the system 'loop' causing that cycling have a BIOS configuration utility?

No booting broblem

I guess the CPU isnt completely ruled out. It might have a bad pin, or your mobo might have a bad socket that got fixed when you jiggled it..but that would be a big problem, and you'll have to take your cpu and look closely at it and the mobo to look for defects.

If its overheating it wouldnt do it immediately. It would get past POST and problem overheat at "starting windows". and if it did that most mobo's will display an error message before POSTing that says it had to shut down your system to prevent overheating.

Plus you also have a decent cpu cooler, so even if you did a terrible job putting on the thermal paste it shouldnt cause your cpu to overheat, unless you have doing a huge overclock, then it might happen.

Are you overclocked right now? have you tried setting everything back to stock speeds and booting like that?

New case fan running but still getting error message system fan failed.

Did you try;

Power off, power unplugged to computer.
Press the Power On button, and hold it in. Hold for a count of 10 seconds.
Let go.

Do this procedure two more times.

Plug the computer back into power. WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

This method clears CMOS Error Codes, and sets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.

CPU fan spinning at required minimum RPM's?

Not talking about the SYS_FAN (Case fan)

When I plug the unit into power, the CPU fan runs very fast but no boot, and then when I press power on the fan slows down and the PC boots normally. It shuts down in about 30 minutes with no sign of...

Sounds like you are overheating. One way to tell if it's overheating is you say it will run for about 30 minutes then shuts down. When it shuts down try rebooting to see if the boots successfully. If it fails to boot successfully right after it shut down then you are probably overheating. If you wait awhile to let it cool down for 30 minutes or so and if you reboot and it does it successfully you definitely have a overheating problem. If I remember correctly all those compaq sr series have loud and fast running fans. Computers overheat because of three reasons for the most part: 1) A fan has stopped working. 2) The Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink has dried up or is not thick enough to keep the unit cool. 3) Dust has clogged the fan vents and inside the computer. Fortunately for you desktops don't have to be completely disassembled like laptops to get to the fan, CPU and heatsink. Just pop the case and you'll see the components attached to the motherboard

If the cpu was bad- nothing would turn on--be sure the cable is good-- also be sure the VGA is enabled in the bios- since you cant see the video you have to reset the cmos setting--unplug the unit and remove the cmos battery-reinstall after one minute and check for video

My HP Compaq Presario v2000 has new mobo, new CPU

You probably put more than a pin-head size drop of heat grease compound on CPU, thus "bleeding" over on the CPU, effectively overheating processor (very common). In any event, your problem is overheating -that's *the* place to look for now.

sounds like the CPU is overheating. if you feel comfortable open the case and replacing the thermal paste between the processor and the heat sink might do the the job. A tube of thermal past is inexpensive and you jsut need to use a small dab to get the job done.
