athlon xp+at7max2 problem
Posted on 2003-02-22
-> processor (new) -> athlon xp 2Ghz
motherboard (new) -> a-bit at7-max2 mb
problem : when mb with ram on it is pluged to power source, it runs without shutting down, but when processor (athlon xp) is set into socket A, with heatsink on it, everything works for a 1-2 sec. and then shuts down (mb yellow led. is always on)
posssible cause : while applying theram grease (for heatsink) on processor some spilled over on to the brown part , but non grease on the small circuits, just the clear brown parts
could the cause be shortcirucuited procesor ? (is it shortcirucited),, and there are any other more possible causes for this ?
thnx to everybody who took time to read this !
