Specs: Windows xp
Hello, so the problem started all from me swapping proccesors from my brothers computer into mine, so i can have better performance. My computer did not boot when i did that so i switched them back and got a screen where it says warning cpu has been changed, f1 to continue by the time i click start windows normally the pc crashes and turns off. Now ive tried getting a new cpu and fan because before i used to get warning cpu fan speed low. That did not fix the problem, than the vcard stopped spinning so i switched it with my brothers and now everything is working just no display. Next i tried using my old processor with my old cpu fan and it showed a display but did my 1st problem all over again which ended up crashing after about 15seconds into boot. Now there are no loud beeps when the computer is on all fans are working. But my old proccesor was on fire when i switched it back with my new one. So now im thinking i burned my onboard cpu slot or something. Could this be possible. I ordered a new motherboard today online. Hopefully that will fix it any advice would be very helpful.

You obviously have no idea what you're doing.

To start with, you haven't told us the make/model of your board or which CPUs you're swapping around. That info is important if you expect to get the answers you need. Same goes for the video cards. Did you bother to go to the board manufacturer's website & check the CPU support list before you started ripping into things?

It sounds like one of the problems is you're not installing the heatsinks properly. Did you thoroughly remove all traces of the old thermal compound & apply a small dab of fresh paste when reinstalling the heatsink? You can't reuse old paste & when applying a fresh layer, it MUST be done correctly. Too much paste is as bad as no paste. And I can't point you to the correct application instructions without knowing the CPU.

The beeping can mean a number of things. It could be an overheat warning, or it could be the video card isn't seated fully in it's slot, or if you messed with the RAM, it may not be seated fully in it's slot.

The cpu is a duo core 3.0ghz lga 775 the video card is the 285gtx. Will my computer boot if my cpu is fried. How do i know or tell if its fried? I have warranty i can just exchange it. It seems to have shutdown about 10-15 seconds in boot and processor is completely burnt by than aka burns my fingers touching it. All fans are working fine. The mboard i am using now is a p5n32-e sli board and ive tried a different vcard as well as a new psu and new mboard.
