Re: CPU test

Hello Trool,

The easiest and more affordable way is to get a hold of a computer that runs normal whose motherboard is compatible with the CPU in question. Swap CPUs, check for functionality and then you'll have your answer. Hope this helps. Let me know

The motherboard will support this CPU, with the F1 bios.
I can only advise, that IF your motherboard was working ok before you put the new CPU in, it must be the new cpu you bought.

If this is the 1st CPU you have tried, there is a chance the board is damaged

Hi,I'd say if your up and running and the system keeps running for more then 10 min's.No the cpu is most likely still good.The problem is that when the system was crashing it lost some files,getting all the file links back can be very tedious,I'd recommend formatting the hard drive and reinstalling all your app's.Save all you can before the format as you will lose everything thats on the hard drive.Hope this has been helpfull plesae rate!!

If nothing has changed I would suspect the power on button has failed. You could order one online to test this theory and replace the defective unit. They don't last forever.

Reviving the cpu

The boards I have seen were overclocked by changing the CPU speeds or the voltages going to the CPU. Change the setting back. When you get into the BIOS setup screen(A lot of them you get into by pressing the delete key when starting up) look for the "Default settings" After clicking on them,save the settings. Thsi wil bring you back to the  Safest board setting according to the board maker.

Laptop will not power up!

If you have replaced the motherboard I would say it is most likely the CPU. If you had not replaced the m/board I would think it was one of the power chips on the board that sends power to the cpu. If the heat sink compound had turned to dust on the top of the cpu that is certainly not going to help with cooling the cpu down. $500 sounds awful pricey for a CPU. What type and speed is it? May be able to dig one up for you in the basement that will work. At least for testing purposes. Post your type and speed of cpu that will work in your laptop.

Pc is not starting up

I'm sorry to tell you but your cpu has probably fried. Your pc hanging a lot probably meant something was overheating and the fact that you say your cpu is not hot when you have the cooling fan off of it means it is probably the cpu. When you first turn your system on without a cpu cooling fan, the cpu should be slightly warm, although I do not recommended running a cpu at all without a cooling fan or even touching it when it has power.
