Processors do not fail unless they are mishandled or installed incorrectly. This system is very old and uses memory that is no longer available. Try starting your system with no memory, does it start to beep repeatedly? The memory may be at fault. No beep, could be the motherboard has failed. You will not find replacement parts, you will need a new system.
To make sure it isn't anything else, pull all cards, and drive cables from the board so the only thing left connected is the power connectors to the motherboard, the speaker, and the power button. Pull all the ram cards.
Now power up the computer. If you hear a series of beeps then the computer recognizes there is no ram on the board. At this point I would take the power supply out and have it tested. If you do not hear a series of beeps I would still have the power supply tested as it could be the 12v is fine but the 5 and 3.3 volt side is bad.
If power supply tests good then I would replace both the motherboard and processor. You take a risk of burning a new processor if it's the motherboard causing the problems.
Trying your peripherals one at the time is the way to find your problem, Memory first - one beep is good, If your mb has onboard video use it first. if not check the settings in the BIOS may be a shared memory that is not set right. Make sure your memory is computable ck one stick at the time.
This is a tough one. On some system bioses one beep means a problem with the RAM. On most it means a succesful POST. Are you getting any video? Have you tried booting to a boot disk? Have you tried a new hard drive? Have you tried to clear the CMOS? Good Luck!
hit Ctrl and F11 while the blue bar is loading this will start your recovery process. now if there are beep codes then it might be something diffrent your computer will beep once thats normal but if it beeps more times after that you need to post how many count them. right now it looks like your harddrive crashed.
There are a few things you can try, the trouble shooting doesnt necessarily have to follow in this order. Best thing I can suggest is try re-seating the processor, and if that is the only stick of RAM you are using see if you can find another to test with. If it still doesnt work after either of those, you might have to try a different processor. Granted, this is if you have those parts on hand. If you still are unable to even get a POST beep, then I would also try snatching the CMOS battery, unpluging it and then hitting the powerbutton reset the CMOS to default settings. If it still doesnt work after you get back then there, then I would snatch every removable piece of hardware from the board down to just the processor/heatsink/fan, memory, and PSU. If you get a POST beep after that, then try adding one piece of hardware at a time until you find the problem piece. If it still doesnt work then there is a pretty good chance that the board is dead.
If the RAM is incompatible with your board then yes it would not allow a boot. Make sure your front panel power wire is plugged into the proper spot on the motherboard and retry. If it's the RAM then you will still have the problem. If it was the wire loose or in wrong spot then it should work. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
