Question about Intel (RK80532PG0881M) Pentium 4, 3 GHz Processor

P4 chit overheating

I bought a bare bones kit, assembled it and booted it. Everything runs fine except for the fact that the CPU starts burning up immediately and my computer will shut down after 2min. Also from when i turn the computer on the data light comes on and stays solid. What could be my issue?

    Yes i accidentally opened up the chat again in a new tab and when i closed the extra tab it ended the whole session! But i will get the HSF, by the way any particular recommendation for one? i dont know much about them and yes this is going to be a gaming rig/media center so i want something good. also is there a certain size or anything that i am looking for?

  • XDeadSmurfX Aug 06, 2008

    One question i have for a HSF is i believe my CPU is a socket 775, is that correct?

  • XDeadSmurfX Aug 08, 2008

    I bought one before i got your post because i wanted to have it before the weekend, so what i got was this it seems to be good, at least for now. What do you think?

  • XDeadSmurfX Aug 08, 2008

    So i got the HSF installed fine, perfect fit easy install. booted up, everything is going fine. I start installing vista, ran fine for 5-10min i get up to go to the bathroom and i come back to the blue screen of death.

    Now if i restart, enter in my country and region info to the install program and hit install it says please wait for about 10 seconds then goes back to the blue screen.

    So i pulled out one of the memory sticks out and tried installing again and everything worked.... Curious, why did that make it work?

  • XDeadSmurfX Aug 08, 2008

    So i finished installing windows, turn computer off and added in other memory stick, and it works beautifully!! Thanks for all your help, it feels really good to have this computer working now.

    next on my list is adding a nice graphics card and then picking up a nice new game and controller and its time to let her rip!

Hi again,

For some reason I lost you in the Live Session/Chat.

In any case, my other thoughts:

  • The Intel 865 motherboard will auto shut down if fan does not rotate or in your case no fan. Added to this would be the thermal protection under the CPU.
  • The data led continuously lighting up is because of the jumpers.
Other than the above, I firmly believe, the unit will run as expected soon as the HSF (heatsink and fan) are installed.

My compliments, with the 2gb ddr from Kingston memory, i think you have a fast machine there. Just add a decent 128 or 256 (or even a 512) video card and you are set with a gaming rig.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Most heatsink/fan combo would work, but if you are intending to use it as a gaming rig then the better cooling the better. Some nice ones are:

    but the stock fans will do for most requirements.

    The only technical limitation is it must fit squarely on the CPU and be locked in place by the slots/clips, physical.

    Of course, pls put on some thermal paste.

  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Aug 06, 2008

    yes it is a socket 775.

  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Aug 08, 2008

    It appears to be identical to the original/Intel supplied heatsink but with a bigger/better fan. If it seats flat on the CPU and matches the 4 locks/tabs, then it should work out right.

    Pls try:

    • run/install with only one of the memories;

    • swap/interchange the memories;

    • redo clean fresh install of the OS;

    • do a reset again of the motherboard CMOS/BIOS.

  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Aug 08, 2008

    hmmm, why did it work with only one memory?

    • Without knowing the exact model number, BIOS version and production version of the motherboard, I can suspect that 2 X 1 Gb is pushing it to the limit. It might still work but perhaps, a BIOS flash would be needed to the latest update;

    • the other memory is below specs and does not match up to the other. A way out is to lower the memory speed so both would work on the speed that the questionable one is capable of;

    • factory defect?;

    • might not have seated properly, try switching places.
    Am glad that it now works.

Bad motherboard?

Unhook everything from it except the power connection and see if it boots. Then start putting things back on it. Check the cpu to make sure that it is installed right,

My p4 system getting hot

see do one thing check the cpu fan whether it is working properly and is not producing any noise if it is then probably you need to replace your cpu fan with a new one also makke sure that your power supply fan and chasis fan is working as excess heat gets generated in the system they remove it
to change the cpu fan 1.see it will depend on what kind of cpu socket you have pin or pinless for pin-open the plastic clamp on the fan for pinless -unscrew the heatsink
2.remove the heatsink and replace it it will be much better if you replace the full heat sink with a new one .also don't forget to put thermal grease compound for effivient heat transfer in between the cpu and the heat sink contact generally these days heat sinks come with pre-applied thermal componds but still it is recomended to apply it firmly over the cpu before installing the heat sink on it
3.if you wish to install the old heatsink by just replacing the top fan then replace the fan and rub the bottom of the heat sink with a sand paper to make it even and free from dust and oxide apply thermal compond and install it on the processor .plug bak the cpu fan header cable . start your system it will stop overheating..

Toshiba a30-931 what is largest posible cpu

Franky_J knows nothing you could go for a P4 2.8 cpu which would work much better than the Celeron in fack any P4 over 2.0 would out perform the celeron if you want speed get rid of the Celeron and get a P4 it should take up to an 3.2 P4 chip.

Franky if you dont understand cpu's then you shouldn't really be answering this question in the cpu world a 2.8 ghz cpu is not always a 2.8ghz cpu for instance this one has half the cash of a P4 cpu meaning it can only do half the work at the same time so in P4 terms this is only a 1.8 P4 equivilent so a 2.8 P4 will be a big improvement.

First of all. Pentiums are infamus for this, they overclock them to get faster CPU's and they dont get the right heatsinks for them and they over heat.

Do you have system fans?

You should have as many pushing air in as you do out to keep a constant displacement of heat.

Second of all, Go into your bios and see if itt has an option for a temperature Alarm for the cpu. If it does, turn it on.

If the Alarm is going off after running it for a while then you have a problem, the machine will shut off to protect the system.

IF its not going off then you may not be having any problems and your just fretting. Mine runs at about 50*C and is constant and never has problems with heating for 5 yeears now.

You tend to want the out fans at the top and the intake fans at the lower part of the case because heat rises up and is more easily displaced that way.

Good luck.

CPU fan

When you say power is going to the mobo, are
other fans and lights turning on? You also may have forgotten to plug in
the large ATX power cord from the PSU, or the smaller 4-pin rectangular 12V
power cord. Is the correct local voltage setting for your PSU selected (110
or 220)?

Processor overheating

Hi have you cleaned the heatsink? Also replace the paste on the CPU, also you could try installing an extra fan on the case to increase air flow. Also check that your RAM is seated properly and any other chip and card on your board is firmly plugged in. If all this fails replace your CPU. Regards mistyman

Pc is not starting up

I'm sorry to tell you but your cpu has probably fried. Your pc hanging a lot probably meant something was overheating and the fact that you say your cpu is not hot when you have the cooling fan off of it means it is probably the cpu. When you first turn your system on without a cpu cooling fan, the cpu should be slightly warm, although I do not recommended running a cpu at all without a cooling fan or even touching it when it has power.
