Re: I need help

The possible problems are:
1.) static discharge from touching the micro...technicians use special anti-static wrist straps to perform this task.
2.) micro not seated properly into socket...repeat the procedure that you described, but this time, ensure you are statically method is to keep the power cord connected so that earth wire has a path to -earth- and keep one hand touching the bare metal chassis at all times...but the initial discharge (the worst one) can be a tricky really is best to wear a static discharge wrist to provide this path and to limit the initial discharge amperage.
What about the "horrid bleeping"? ....need more detail...

Instructons to reset my motherboard

First replace your computers cap, then look careful your motherboard, unplug one-by-one jacks (cables) CD rom, HDD, Floppy Driver, Power supply jacks, remove processor, ram memory, cards (video, sounds, etc) unplug cables of buttons, Front panel card etc. but you should take care don't scratch cables and don't break connections cause you will use again them, and you should remember place of connectors because that can destroy your motherboard if you change the place of them. I suggest you to use camera to capture the cables so you can remember easier . After you unplug connectors you should remove screws replace new motherboard and make previous steps upside-down.

The LED in my motherboard is on, but if i turn on the switch, their is no response. the power connection is correct. but it doesn't work

Try swapping the power button connection with the reset button connection. Then to turn on your computer you will need to press the reset button. If that works you have a faulty power button. Otherwise try using a different PSU. One that you know works. If that doesn't help the motherboard will have to be replaced.

Hi,my computer has stopped working and just beeps at me. mother boardis a Microstar P4m266-8235. Please Help......Thank You

Hi there,

This problem could be due to carious problems.

1) Your motherboard is faulty.
2) Your Processor is faulty.
3) Your RAM chip/s are faulty.

Firstly, you will need to unplug your computer and open it up. Then you need to locate the RAM which looks like this:


Remove one piece of RAM (assuming you have more than one piece) and try to start the computer again, then if it doesn't work, remove the other chip and reinsert the chip that was first removed and try to power up again.

If it works, then one of the RAM chips were faulty and you will need to replace them.

If the computer still does not work, then either your Motherboard or Processor are faulty.

You should then buy a new motherboard which isn't too expensive (be sure to buy a motherboard that will fit in your computer and will also be able to handle your processor.). Place the motherboard with the RAM in to the computer case after removing the old motherboard. Then carefully remove the processor from the old one and put it in to the new one.

Be sure to re-insert any cables that you have unplugged from the old motherboard in to the new one. Then try and power up once the machine has safely been closed again.

If the computer works, the motherboard was faulty. If it still does not work, then your processor is faulty and you will need to buy a new processor and install it.

Alternatively, you can take the computer to a repairman who will test the various components which will save you the hassle of doing all of that work and it will also save you the cost of having to buy new RAM and a new motherboard if in fact it is actually your processor that is faulty.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great day and please remember to rate this solution.

Best regards,

Proccer pins are damaged with the socket are replaced?

No, you lost that processor, the processor pins are made with gold and are very fragil. I gona bring you an advice, when you work with computers have to be very, very carefully. Good technicians have learned from mistakes like yours. You are not the first one.

Nothing on moniter when powed up all i get is a bleeping noise iwas told it could be my hard drive or motherboard.


If you are receiving a continues beep sound, then I would request you to open the computer, remove the RAM, clean it and replug it. That will take care of the issue.

Thanks and regards,

I have an Intel Celeron D 2.26GHz Socket 478 256 k /FSB 533. Is it possible to replace the Pentium 4 1.6GHz in the Vectra with the Celeron. If so what steps would I take and will I have any XP COA...

You need to check with the motherboard maker. A manual would tell you and you might be able to get the info online if you search for the above model number, find the manufacturer and look up the specs. It needs to have the same socket(form factor) and support the bus speed of the new one.
Replacing a CPU is straightforward but non trivial.

You're going to have to give us more information about what you are looking to do. If you are wanting to know how to add/remove your processor: If the heat-sink and fan are removed, there is a little clasp or lever you have to undo/push down and up to unlatch the processor. After that, you are going to VERY CAREFULLY remove the processor from the slot. If you need to add the processor, place the processor down on the CPU seating with the lever/clasp undone. Make sure you line up the arrow on the corner of the CPU to the arrow on the motherboard. Press the clasp/lever down and latch it into place.
