friend hp this fault make from two reasons first of all voltage that you give low voltage to your cpu please diagnose it and make a powerfull voltage connection for your cpu and 2nd is definatly your ram so replace your ram. your old ram will run in another cpu but not in that one so you can replace it easly.

Plug power cord in to computer, power supply starts up system fan and cpu fan starts and runs no other indication that the computer is booting up. this happens with all cobles diconnected, even the frount...


Try swapping out the RAM first since it's easier then changing out the CPU. If that doesn't work, then the probably most likely lies with the CPU.

My hp pavilion m7170n keeps shutting off randomly, is this a power supply problem?


You are going to have to test several things when trying to diagnose the problem.

1) It could be *********** Board. Most computer shops will have a test cpu or each particular motherboard cpu style, this allows them to test your CPU and Mother Board.

2) Yes, It could be your power supply. Power supplies do go out randomly, normally a common problem is people forget to upgrade the power supply when they upgrade, say, a video card. Depending on the size of the power consumption of the new hardware the person would need to upgrade the power supply, other wise they end up having the same problem.

3) Have you upgraded your RAM lately? If so then double check to be sure *********** Board can handle it, otherwise it will reset like it is.

Well I hope this helps.

I get 3 beeps and no video on my gateway desktop


The beeps usually meen that the memory is either incorrect or not inserted correctly. Try removing the new memory and go back to the original configuration. Though not recommended, putting the memory in while still plugged up should not be the problem.

No power at all when i try to turn it on


If the CPU (Processing unit) is not switching at all, then first thing you can check is your RAM.
Switch of the power supply and unplug the cables. Then open the top cover (or whatever your CPU has) of teh CPU and remove the RAM from its slot and install it again (place it in its slot as it is). Or if you have 2 slots for the RAM and only one RAM installed then try installing (placing) the RAM in the other slot which is empty.
Plug in all the cables and switch the power supply. This method works most of the time.
Gud luck.

Will This Cpu fit my computer?


You can put the cpu in, its the same socket and the same pin as that one you have now. But you will probably not be able to use the 800Ghz fully since it is the motherboard who sets the buz speed and the cpu you using now haz the speed of 533Ghz.
About the RAM, you can have maximum 2GB of memory on that motherboard, thats all it supports. The momory type you can use is DDR PC2100/PC1600
