    CHECK THE CMOS JUMPER TO MAKE SURE ITS NOT IN CLEAR MODE. iF ITS NOT, THEN TRY FLASHING THE MOBO.

    i have an endless saga very similar to this that i am ready to give up on

    I have been through 2 P3 processors, 5 motherboards, 3 video cards, 6 sticks of ram, and 4 power supplies in an attempt to solve the problem, last thing we tried was bought a mobo/cpu combo on ebay and the little part we had working is all gone now so i got a pile of stuff im not game to try in other machines for fear of killing them!!!!

    all i can say is, it will look like the motherboard was the prob - then it'll be the cpu - then its somefin shorting like vidcard or psu and nuthin has fixed my probs. to be honets i know that all vidcards are fine (PCI/AGP), ram is fine and all PSUs are fine powering other systems

    so imleft staring at 5 motherboards and 2 CPUs.. which i am probably going to turf for fear of killing anything else...

    i'd be wondering if somefin like that is possible - mobo kills CPU, dead cpu then kills another mobo - could then the now dead mobo also kill another cpu!?! hence, 5 mobos and 2CPUs is a very expensive test range so i am not going to dare throw another "known working" part at it - just...is it possible!?

    Right now i am pretty sure its the processor that is at fault. I placed a 1700+ from work and it up and running. I can't wait till i get my Barton from FedEx. Its gonna be sweet on an EpoX 8rda.:D

    u probably cracked the cores when u were taking then out. it may seem like a coincedence to crack two and screw 1 cpu, but that is the only thing i can think off. Also whats ur friend ganno do?

    I honestly don't think i cracked anything ...i am pretty experienced with installing and uninstalling Processors and don't think he cracked the other two either.

    My buddy got his MSI Kt400 board (which i don't even look at when there is the nForce2 but w/e thats him) and returned the board at the local retailer and got another MSI KT400 and bought an 1800+ and he is up and running now. He paid for my burnt Palomino... and that helped me purchase the 2500+ i am soon recieving via FedEx.:cheers:

    lucky.
    how much do u think u can get the barton up to. like maybe 2.3 GHz OC? ive also never heard of the actuall clock spped of it, u know what it is? they got the 2400+ up to like 2.5 GHz at some site. I dont think its clacked that high though cause the 3000+ is only like 2.167 :confused: :confused: :?: :?:

    Words of worning.

    Dell ( as well as the other major ditzheads) have occasionally changed the wiring on the PSU to the 20 pin mobo connector; therefore, if you replace the psu with "an industry standard psu connector", you can fry cookies all the way down the pipeline.



    Take care (and read first) when you are helping buddies with those pos comps. The wires are colour coded, compare first.

    Better yet, tell your buddies to junk the old psu cuz it probably has been running too hot for too long in those small enclosed cases anyway.
