Installed new motherboard, but system would not boot. What is the problem. Did not receive a manual with motherboard at time of purchase.


Hello Dch,

After replacing the mother board if the system is not booting up then check the power connections on the mother board. The wires of power, restart buttons are properly connected to the motherboard. Also check the thermal grease which is used between cpu fan and cpu. If the thermal grease gets dried then clean the grease and apply the 2 drops of new thermal grease and properly lock the cpu fan.

What will i do with my cpu hanging while it boots... it completely freezes and all i can do is do a hard shut down... and, it wouldnt boot after power off.. specs mboard.. xfs xg31i processor.. dual...


When your cpu does not load completely it is usually caused by problems from the system files therefore making the unit not to load. The OS on your unit could either be corrupted or be lacking in some system files. To solve this simply get the OS disc and run it on your unit. Just like trying to format but instead of formatting run a repair for the system. This should replace the corrupted files or missing ones.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

The heatsink has fallen off. can it be replaced.


If the heatsink has fallen because the plastic that holds the heatsink chipped, you can use a plastic glue to place it back. Make sure that you have cleaned the surface of the heatsink that touches the cpu off it's thermal grease before putting it back. Replace the thermal grease with a new coat to make sure proper heat transfer occurs. Check out some videos on you tube on how to apply the thermal grease properly for guidance.

What is the purpose of thermal paste?


Leroy Elliott's answer is incorrect. The purpose of thermal paste or "grease" it to help with the transfer of heat from the cpu to the heat sink.
Without this grease or if the grease dries out the heat sink can not do it's job efficiently

Over heating


No thermal grease or old dry thermal grease and a dust and debris filled heatsink is your most likely cause of this problem. Dell isn't very overclocker friendly...it is more likely a lack of maintenance in blowing the dust out of the case on a regular basis. Take the case panels off and use dry compressed air to blow the system out and clean it thoroughly. The heatsink needs to be removed and the hold down latch on the processor needs to be removed and the heatsink and processor need to be wiped clean and a new thin layer of thermal grease applied to the processor. Put the system back together and fire it up.

Beep problem


Hello niceguy_jes2,
click on this link for the ambulance like sound beep description:
http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

"High frequency beeps while running". "Check the CPU fan for proper operation. Check the case for proper air flow".

First item to check would be CPU's fan speed. To do this, enter your bios menu. Listed there is "H/W Monitor". Open it. Check the fan speed, CPU temperature & mother board temp. Chances are the CPU fan is turning too slow & it may need to be replaced. (No less than 2300RPM's). Average CPU fan's spin at 3000 plus).
Next item if CPU fan is ok. The thermal grease between the heat-sink & CPU may have dried up over time & cause the CPU to get too hot. You may need to remove the CPU & heat-sink assembly. Clean off all old thermal grease from the bottom of the heat-sink & from the CPU. If you do this, do not scratch either surface. Use house hold alcohol on a clean rag & wipe away all old thermal grease. Apply a tiny amount of new thermal grease. Re-assemble & check through bios H/W monitor, CPU temp. One or the other will stop the system beeps.

Pentium D problem


Hi oilian,
Be glad it did shut down. If it didn't, your new CPU could haveover heated. There are a few reasons for a CPU to over heat.
1.) There is no thermal grease or too little on the heat-sink assembly.
2.) The old thermal grease was not removed or the old thermal tape was not removed.
3.) The heat-sink assembly was not cleaned completely with alcohol before applying new thermal grease.
4.) The CPU fan is running too slowly.
5.) The heat-sink fins are possibly filled with dust build-up & the CPU fan can not cool the heat-sink assembly. Boot to the bios & go to Hardware Monitor. There you can check voltage, CPU fan speed, CPU temp & other bios monitored settings.

Good luck oilian!

CPU fan stops, computer shuts down


You must have the CPU fan plugged into the CPU fan power connector or the system can not monitor the fans speed. Your PC will shut down & give you that message. (The fan must be connected to the correct power plug).
If when you did replace the CPU's fan & had to remove the heat sink, which is where the fan screws into & did not clean the old thermal grease off the CPU & heatsink & replace with new thermal grease than your CPU will still overheat. If you add thermal grease over top of old thermal grease your CPU will over heat.
This is all a balancing act. If any one is not correct your system will shut down. (This is better than killing the CPU).
To remove old thermal grease use a clean cloth damped with house hold alcohol & use the same on the bottom of the heatsink. Please allow plenty of time for the alcohol to dry.

Good Luck! Take your time.
