Question about Compaq Pentium 4 , 1.5 GHz (244318-B21) Processor
Thanks for your message,
I haven't been able to reply because my computer has gotten worse since I posted the last message and haven't been able to use the machine at all.
I have cleaned the inside of the computer, and may I add, taken all the components out and cleaned them too, (as this was my first thought of rectifying the problem), but this didn't seem to work.
I have not attempted to reset the mother board as I don't know how.
Processor and fan malfunctions are now what I'm considering also, but as I don't know much about hardware I don't know how to run checks to enable a me to single out and identify the main cause of the shutdown.
It is a quite an old computer, (around 7 or 8 years), but has been running fine right up to this point.
I don't think it would be worth spending out to get a technician to look at it, so I would like to fix it myself and gain some insight into hardware issues, (it's always good to know whats underneath the bonnet).
So thanks again for your reply and hope to hear back from you soon.
Have you connected all the cables and power plugs correctly
the cpu fan has a separate connector on the board
the wide ribbon cables to hard drive have a stripe on one side which goes nearest to the 4 pin power lead into hard drive
try these thing and recontact me with more info on your computer
