Does processors fail?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Bout a month ago, my pc got struck by lightning from the DSL line... fried my modem and network card so i bought a network card and everyting was fine... then bsod start coming in like once a day... and it kept getting more and more frequent till one day... there aint no more BSOD! just plain restarts my pc (the restart automaticly in system is untick btw)

So i thought it was the psu, so bought one... problem persists then bought a new 1GB memory... then a motherboard then use everything which is built in on the new motherboard to eliminate my graphic card, sound card and network card for being the culprit.. restarts even faster... kill me... (btw: and since it is a new Mobo.. i did a clean reinstall.. format and everything )

So... it is all down to the CPU now? or am i still missing something.. i installed sandra to keep track of the cpu temp and it is at around 35 when doing memtest... then restarts.. >_< then i tried testing my ram using MS memdiag boot cd... and >_< it hangs at same exact spot of 1 test! then i brought in back my 2 old memory 256x2 to test and same thing happens! hang..

So it is most probably CPU fault ? or am i missing something... should not be a hit problem since i am in air con room and applied new thermal grease for the cpu and have a fan directed at it... heh

i am suspecting L1 and L2 cache or some cpu memory intructions failed.. i cant even do anything now on my pc.. reboots 1-15 minutes into the startup..

I think it may be the cpu cause you have pretty much eliminated all of the other things. but it would help if you filled in your system spec's by going to the user controller pannel

If you replaced all that other stuff you might as well replace the processor...and if that doesn't do it you've replaced everything and the only answer left is a VOODOO CURSE! in which case you need a priest.

i just need clarify it really is that processor.. since the 478 socket is hard to find now

did a search in google for faulty processor but mostly it say processor are hard to die and fail... with thermal protection and all heha.. tough luck for me... guess mine got got static damage from the lightning... which grew worst overtime... or the thermal control went haywire...


thanks for all your helps and comments

Have you tried another HDD? Like the mobo, it has a direct connection to the psu. It would more likely be zapped than the cpu. But then your damage came through a pci card, so who knows maybe it is your cpu. Depends on where those unwanted amps ended up in their journeys. But a bad HDD can cause a whole lot of different problems, including the ones you're having.

My sisters comp had a psu go out awhile back. It took out the mobo and HDD with it, but the cpu turned out fine. I'm not saying your cpu isn't what's wrong, but I think you should check into your HDD maybe.

Good luck, hope you fix it
