Default Help CPU Query

Can you cause a CPU failure by puting in a faulty motherboard?

I have two machines based on Gigabyte m/bs

1 = GA-81945GMF running a Skt775 P4 (531) 3.0Ghz - Was fully working
2 = GA 81945GMH-RH Skt775 built but no processor.

I took the CPU out of working machine and placed in new build to test.

Powered up No Post on screen. Fans on PSU, CPU and case (m/b linked) all start on power up. Left on for no more than 1 minute, given no post.

Took CPU out and put back in previously working machine. Powered up but no post but fans work and CPU Heatsink gets hot implying CPU has power.

Machine 2 motherboard is new as are all other parts.

If CPU heatsink in machine 2 not properly seated could I blow CPU (Don't P4 CPU's have thermal safety cuts outs.)

Any ideas / thoughts anyone?

Default Not good at all

Hi there, this is a wireless forum but sounds like you have a nasty problem. Make sure you did not bend any pins on the changeover, easy to do while getting the cpu in and out. Unfortunately you will need another machine to test with (or CPU). I hope you took static precautions?
Good Luck
