Displays momentarily and asks for CPU fan connection. I have changed 4 fans and still get the same error message and the display goes off.

You're sure you have the cpu fan connected to the correct socket? sounds like it's not connected, or is connected to a different socket. Does the fan turn?

Is ABIT SG-71 a Pentium 4 motherboard and what are the specs, the does and donts

The ABIT SG-71 is an Intel Socket 478 that could take a Pentium 4 or Celeron CPU (533/400MHz) designed for the 478 socket. It could support up to 2 GB of DDR 333 memory.

This motherboard may not be worth putting in a new CPU; it is over 10 year old technology. It's very old and slow compared to even two year old CPU and motherboard options.

Cindy Wells
(if you do want to replace the CPU, remove the old hardware. Use extreme care not to bend any pins on the CPU. Add new thermal paste to the top of the CPU and then put on the heatsink. Connect the CPU fan to the CPU fan header.)

Which one is better nd more cheaper,between a pinless nd a pinned processor?? #Urgent please!!

Neither type is better or worse than the other if you're talking about performance (speed). AMD processors have traditionally always been pinned because their socket types require them to be. Intel also used pinned processors as well but since the Core2 and Pentium D lines came out a few years ago, they have ditched the pinned design for something in my opinion that is easier to install. Instead of pins they now have a more flat design with what appear to be receptor-like squares that don't actually physically plug into the cpu socket on the motherboard. With the AMD processors you have to be careful not to bend the pins otherwise it will damage the cpu and in the worst case scenario render it inoperable. Sometimes you can bend the pins back into place.

But in the end, performance-wise they're all the same, you just have to be careful when handling them.

During power up the power indicator is lighted up but no video and no hard disk activity and stays that way

first remove your smps connector to the motherboard short the pin green and black and see wether the smps fan is working if working connect the connector remove the power supply of the hard disk otherwise it may damage the hard disk now remove the cpu fan and the processor from the socket clean the CPU fan and the processor and fix the processor to the socket apply a thin layer of heat sink solvent and fix the CPU fan firmly on the socket now remove your memory and wipe it clean with a dry cloth and fix it to the memory slot and switch on the computer

CPU pins are bent

Wait if there just bent you can very gentily bend them back with your fingernails. the gentil put it in the Mother board socket slowly if you do it right you can use the socket to re align the pins. make sure you align up the gold arrow on the processor the the arrow on near the corner of the socket. If you have a little of patience you'll be all right. I've done that too along time ago.

How to install CPU- Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 into a asus barebone system P4-P5N9300pc please?

This particular CPU is not on the list of processors supported by this board. See "CPU Support List" tab:

ASUS P4-P5N9300 Spec

How to install Socket LGA 775 CPUs:

Lift up the cpu slot load plate (which covers the pins and also locks the cpu in place) and install the processor slowly, vertically and carefully into the socket without bending any of the tiny pins in the motherboard socket. Lock the load plate.

The advent of the LGA 775 form factor moved the tiny pins from the CPU to the motherboard socket. Great for Intel, not so great for motherboard manufacturers. Now bent pins are the responsibility of the board makers. Customers with bent pin problems are no longer contacting Intel.

Problem with VAIO PCV-RS320

The broken pins are definately the problem. Any CPU needs all the pins to work properly. This problem is solved by replacing the cpu.

Bent CPU Pins

Never use a credit card as the magnitic strip may damage the cpu.
These cpu's are fare too easy to damage. You would be better off replacing the cpu and not removing it if you are un-aware of the outcome.
Cpu's can be picked up almost anywhere, cheap.
