Hello the fan of the northbridge of my MS 7125 does not rotate, and when i boot up it lock down on Loading screen


HI. This issue with the NB fan will be a direct result of fan failure. The actual fan motor assembly may be shorted or disabled. This fan should be replaced asap(make sure to check the fan connector for proper connection before replacing the NB fan). Now, concerning your halted boot screen; This will be a direct result of a failed or corrupted OS(Operating System). I would recommend to initiate a system restore by inserting the restoration CD/DVDROM that came with the CPU system, when purchased or delivered. This will totally reinstall the OS and correct all corrupted files that have been affected by this unfortunate virus/worm attack.

Due to the fact that your system will not boot up, you will need to insert the restoration CD/DVDROM into its respective ROM device and shutdown the unit for five minutes. Once the shutdown has occurred, simply, restart your unit and follow the restoration instructions on screen during the hard boot. It may be necessary to self initiate the restoration by booting from the actual ROM device, via f11 or f9 command upon boot screen.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
one bad lead will end with a computer error a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and have an end to function properly

even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly

a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working also it could be a dirty

graphics card you might have remove the graphics card and clean the socket hope this helps

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

SUSPECT DAMAGED CAPACITORS


Bulged capacitors are blown, that is the reason why the motherboard do not start.

Sometimes replacing capacitor may fix the problem, but due to the inexpensiveness of motheboard, and to the chance that more component may had been damaged by the fault, when this happen you usually replace the motherboard, rather then repairing at component level.

I don't think the installer will work over a network. I think you need an actual CD of 8.5/8.6 or an external drive with the OS on it.

It sounds like there's underlying problems unrelated to Panther. If the computer boots from the the old HD, but then the HD didn't show under Disk Utility, this is an intermittent problem. Try replacing the cable that goes to the HD (if there is one), it may have become damaged sufficiently that things aren't working under "heavy use" (like trying to install an OS). If there is no cable, or replacing it doesn't work, I'd suggest putting the original HD in and selling the computer as-is. Again, if it still botos from the old HD, then it's not a problem with the HD or Panther, unless the reconditioned HD you bought was faulty (unlikely but possible). More likely is when you installed the reconditioned HD, something else changes (e.g. connection made better contact) that caused the HD to show.
