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

CPU compatibility issues

the cpu test is something a computer does to test the board. it sounds like there is something wronge with it. pentium 4 boards very with the clock speed. it depends on the age and if it can handle. if you went from a 1.7 to a 3.2 than you might be overloading it not allowing the computer to register.
basiclly what you need to do is get you a board that is already set-up for a 3.0ghz or higher proseccor.

even through it is a p4b some of the older models can only be upgraded to a 2.0ghz.

Dell Optiplex 330,won't boot memory parity error, tried new bios battery, new ram stick, still won't boot,actually had two at same time the other I ran a advanced diagnostic test said hard driv

I found this

Customer's Optiplex 330 did the same thing today; no beep codes (due to lack of on board speaker). Solid/orange light on front of case indicates board or cpu. I isolated every component not soldered down (RAM, HDD, Optical, etc). Considering all the fans and lights on the MoBo were functioning, and no physical damage to the CPU was apparent, and the BSOD presented the "memory parity error; system halted" (meaning it's memory, graphics memory, or cpu and we've eliminated possibly CPU and RAM) my conclusion is that the problem resides in Graphics memory failure. Considering the error message is very vague and generally insists "motherboard", the gpu in an optiplex 330 is integrated ON the board, lumping it all together.

and general memory parity fail information

I replaced the memory and turned the computer on and no video. no beep either.

Assuming you tried putting the old ram back and had the same result?
No beeps are indicative of a failed Power supply (check the PSU fan is working and the CPU fan is turning), Then check the ram modules are firmly inserted. Check the small 4 pin Black and yellow power rail that powers the cPU is tight.

After that, unplug, remove the CMOS battery, leave for 30 seconds and re-insert, try booting now.

If that fails, you have either got a fault on the mobo, or a dead CPU.

Testing the board with a known good CPU will confirm the latter.

Check the motherboard for blown and bulging capacitors, see if you can smell any burning from the board, either will indicate damage to the motherboard

Cooling fan on dell inspiron 1545 does not run

The best thing to do for a beginner is replacing the fan. Fan is not an expensive part, and disassembling main board there is the risk to damage other parts.

Test the fan on a different motherboard (or connector on same main board if available) to see if the fan is working.

Use a multimeter to check if there is voltage on motherboard fan contacts. This test is quite delicate. The motherboard can be started and work with no fan only for a limited time, or CPU will get damaged. This test is for an expert DIYer or technician.

If the fan is not working (most common situation), then replace the fan.

If the fan is working and there is no voltage in main board, then the main board is usually replaced. In some case the problem are the solder joint to fan connector, in that case a repair can be done soldering the contacts back.

I had a loud fan noise coming from inside my desktop box for a while. One day (& ever since,) when I went to turn the box on, absolutely nothing happened: no fans, no BIOS, no LEDs. I made no config...

This may work however i think by ignoring the sound of the Fan you might have destroyed the cpu and the motherboard.If you can try the processor in another machine you might just have to replace the motherboard only.
Good Luck

Heat sink glued to cpu on GX270

You can use a straight-edged razor to remove the CPU without actually hurting the CPU. I would also make sure to clean of any dried thermal compound residue to avoid making the CPU absorb more heat on your new board. Just make sure that when you do remove the heatsink from the CPU, you are extra careful to not bend any of the CPU pins.

And when you place the CPU in the new board, remeber to apply a thick coat of thermal compound to ensure that the CPU remains cool.
