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)

HCL INFINITI L A380 TRU PC doesnot boot.Gives error about EFI. Initially we get two beeps and after about 5 minutes gives error message and it goes to bios setup

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

Can be a destroyed CPU from overheating as well.

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?

Building desktop: no beeps, no video The mobo LED are on, fan is running but getting no signal to monitor. I've tested the video card in another pc and confirmed working. The only time the mobo beeps...

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

Screen freezes and shows lots of lines - must restart everything. This is happening more often.

This can be memory, CPU, Hard drive, or graphics card, or overheating.

To check the memory, hdd, and cpu you can download the ultimate boot cd UBCD Burn it to a disc then boot to it. Use the utilities on it to test your components.

To check and track your temps you can download HWMonitor keep this running until it crashes. Once it does, reboot then open it again. The program will show you the max that the cpu and gpu reached in temp. gpu ovr 60C is usually starting to overheat. CPU over 50-60C (unless its a core 2 duo or quad then its 80C) is overheating.

To help solve overheating buy a cooling pad and have the thermal paste/pads replaced on the cpu and gpu.

If the problem persists then there is a big possibility that your gpu is heating up to much and the motherboard is starting to lose the solder joints to it.

Fail to boot

When you say boot do you mean POST?

Is it turning on at all?

What happens exactly when you press the power button?

Any beeps?

Open the case and remove everything except 1 RAM chip, the cpu, the cpu cooler. Hook up the monitor to the onboard graphics and try to boot again.

If it POSTs then you know that you have a problem with one of the pieces of hardware you removed, replace them 1 at a time until it fails to POST then you know which piece is defective.

If it still doesn't POST with everything removed, try a different RAM chip, if it still fails POST then you need to replace the motherboard.

Same prob

This problem cannot be solved by anyone but a trained technician.

It will liklely requires one of the following repairs

1) new motherboard
2) new CPU
3) New CPU fan
4) new ATX power supply

This is my honest opinion after 100+ PM repairs personally.

best of luck,

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.

DG965RY boot problem

Hi niraj73
1. Remove the 1 Ram module from Slot B Channel 0.
2. See if problem is still there.
3. If not get another Ram module of same spec to fill up all 4 channels.
4 If error still there swap the removed Ram module with one of the Ram modules still installed. One of them might be faulty.

Computer hangs after 5 minutes from boot

Check the CPU fan (working) and heat sink as these over time clog up with fluff and dirt overheating CPU also check the rear of power supply for blocked ventilation holes
