system will NOT start
bmcreider Mar-01-01 02:05 PM
I am on my Dad's PC now.

The problem is that my computer won't even start, it wont even go to the BIOS. It just sits there with the power on.

It all started when I....

I got a peltier, I was going to see if it would work good on the AMD.

It didn't, it was WAY too weak. I checked the temps in the BIOS and it went all the way to 235 degrees then froze.

So I turned it off and put the other one back on, a Chrome Orb. I checked the temps and they were normal. But then the peltier was still plugged in and the peltier part was not working, I got the wire working and tried it again on the proc.

When I did it was still too hot and before it got WAY hot I shut it off.

I decided I would not use it at all and put back on the Orb once again.

This time when I started the system, it just had power. Display would not come on, hard drives would not churn, it was like it had no proc at all. I took out the proc and it did the same thing.

I have an Abit KT7 RAID, so I checked the transistors, or those cylindrical things, next ot the socket. They were loose since I had to put in an Orb, and it had to have room to get in.

So I don't know if I need to spend $200 for a new Tbird, or if I need to spend $150 for a new mobo.

OR if I can flip a switch or press a little red button to make it all work again. I must have a computer.

I just bought a 16x10x40x TDK CDRW and I really don't want to have to take it back so I can get a proc or a mobo.

Help ASAP PLEASE!!!!!!!!

If there was no operating CPU fan on the T-Bird, it is probably fried. It only takes seconds without a CPU fan to fry a Socket A processor. The motherboard may have survived. Larry

I have been using the Orbs on some of our motherboards and they work great. The only problem is they are too wide for some motherboards. Those big ole cyndrical transistors are placed right in the way. Sooooo... if you really forced the fan on there, I think that it's possible that you could have screwed the motherboard too. (Although my first inclination is that you fried the cpu- Larry's right, those puppies run super hot, if you watched it go to 235 and then freeze, that's probably it)
