I assume your talking about the CPU in the "Brain" ...the electronic device that handles the engine ignition, monitoring, and operation of the engine and major associated engine components.
I would take it to the dealer and request a diagnostic test. Cost's a bit, not too much, but a bad CPU would produce no codes for the test ...or produce a 'bad' CPU code... both revealing a bad CPU. The dealer or a good repair shop can tell you if the CPU is good or bad.
You might try disconnecting your positive battery cable for 30 seconds or longer. This may reboot the CPU and reset it to normal operation. Then drive your car a couple of miles so it can
'normalize' itself . If you do this would probably erase the stored codes if any for the dealer test. If you have a bad CPU, it wouldn't matter. BUT if it's not a bad CPU... you've lost your codes and a more simple 'fix' by telling you what 'was' wrong.
You can also Google your problem and find people's insight... having the same problem with the same model car
Good luck . .---bp

It also sounds like you have a cooling issue with your processor. Try removing that is over the area of the exhaust vents and clean all the dust and **** off the vents, heat sink, and fan. You may have to remove the fan to do so.

Dell Dimension 8200 Processor

hi, i also hav a dimensions 8200 which i recently uprgaded to a 2.8gh, but i discovered there were two versions of this system one which supports a 400FSB and the other 533FSB, these can determine the speed of ur cpu. Like you, I havent been able to unlock my clock speeds in the bios but i think you should be able to get more from ur new cpu by updating ur bios version to A09. check the dell site for more info on how to do this.
