Dead mobo? Dead Cpu?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Last night my cpu died on me, and I'm not sure what it is..

I had it overclocked from 2.2 to 2.55, and it was stable for the last few days no problems.. With a 1.7v vcore.. Although I don't think that would hurt it as my cpu NEVER breaks 45c load, and 2 years ago this same cpu I used to run at 2v vcore! at 2.8ghz...

I was in windows surfing the net, when my whole screen locked up and got a bunch of squiggly lines across it.. I rebooted, and my PC wouldn't post. The bios gave a "bad video" code.. Award pheonix bios 1 long beep 2 shorts.

So I swapped video cards, same problem.

I put my original video card back in, still same problem. I kept rebooting the pc over and over and over and over and over, until it posted and made it through bios.. But then it got to the windows loading screen, and locked up.. For about 3 minutes, then the whole pc rebooted itself..
I tried booting into windows in safe mode, same thing, I tried "last settings that worked" same thing.

So I formatted.. Got booted into windows, installed my mobo lan drivers and video drivers, rebooted, and it wouldn't even make it past bios?!

Then after rebooting like 10 times it made it past bios, and into the windows loading screen where it blue screened..

Frustrated I formated AGAIN. Except this time while the windows cd was loading, it blue screened.

And when I rebooted it, it wouldn't even post again...............

Anyone have any clue what my problem could be? Would a cpu produce these issues? Is it likely my motherboard?

I'd like to get it fixed because as old as this pc is, it does everything I need it to do, and the last thing I wanna do is buy an entire new pc..
btw everything in my system below is still the same

Most likely, the problem is with your board. What board and CPU? Sounds like a Socket A or 939....

EDIT - I see it is the CPU in your sig....

Does that board have integrated graphics? If so, you could try those and see if maybe you blew out your PCI-e/AGP slot.

Did you try down clocking it back to stock and booting up?

Ya, the first thing I did was clear my cmos after it wouldn't post (figured it was oced too far)

I even tried running it at 200x4 (thats what my board defaults to) and it wouldn't load right
I also tried 200x10 and the factory 200x11, nothing =\\




I'm just MAINLY wanting to verify that its not my cpu, before I go ordering a mobo or something..


but I was also curious if bios can get corrupt? Could I possibly flash my bios and save it?

Is that 90nm processor ?
If not my god that is a huge load of vcore.

Regardless of your temps, there are max voltage settings on processors.

nah its the 130

but I ran 2v over 2 yeras ago for about 6 months.. I know I know it was dumb
But I've been running 1.7 for over 2 years now, no issues..

I know when I bought the core, people said "1.65 is safe" so I pushed it a little lol


I JUST poped a voodoo3 pci into my computer, and it booted into windows just fine......... I'm now thinking it MIGHT be my agp port =\\..
I'm gonna try to surf the net and stuff and see what happens if it crashes at all then I'll know its not the agp port

oh I knwo

I just figured if I could run 2v before just fine, that 1.7 shouldn't hurt it now days haha
I mean, it might.. But idk

Do processors ever just cause blue screens? I've always been under the impression they either work or they don't

Simple test. Remove the proc from the PC and try to boot. The mobo shoudl give you a post code for CPU failure. If it doesn't, the board is fried. If it does it's likely the proc that fried.

good idea hatesfury

sorry 1.6-1.9v should be ok for 130

even2 v might be ok for the 130nm

i thought it was a 90nm in which your putting too much voltage.

Good luck
