Replaced Processor a few days ago and today it won't boot
Posted on 2006-07-22
I came home tonight system was frozen, rebboted the pc and now the speakers keep saying "System Failed CPU Test"
Video never comes on and the processor light stays pegged at red. and this message above just keeps repeating itself.
So here is the deal it is a white box that has worked for a year. ASUS MB A8V-E Deluxe. 1gb ram single dimm, socket 939. With a high end video card.
I had an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ in there and last week switched to an AMD Athlon 64X2 4200+ Dual core. I flashed the bios and everything has been fine ever since.
I assumed the processor had gone bad...so i put the old 3500+ back in and same error.
Even moved the memory around the 4 slots to be sure it was not that, last i reset the bios and still no luck just keep getting the voice stating "System Failed CPU Test"
