CPU will not boot since replacing

January 24, 2011 at 13:06:31
Specs: Windows XP, Celeron 2 Gig
Changed CPU with same spec, Celeron 1.7 478 socket. If I disconnect CPU supply connector the CPU fan works and the M, board LED lights. Reconnect the CPU connector and nothing happens. Reset the BIOS both by jumper and battery without any success. Has anyone come accross this issue, to be more precise, has anyone solved this issue. Thanks

Why did you replace the CPU in the 1st place? I assume there was some sort of problem. Maybe the orignial CPU isn't bad, but why would you replace it with the exact same thing rather than upgrading? Did you clean off all traces of the old thermal compound & apply a fresh dab of paste? Are you sure the heatsink is fastened securely? What is the make/model of your board?

Thanks for getting back to me. i changed the CPU as the pc was running slow, it also showed signs of overheating, cloged up with debri. So as the processor was relatively cheap I decided to replace it along with the heatsink and fan. Yes the paste wast was replaced and the whole unit secure. Does this help? Thanks
ps 'board is a Gigabyte G8-simfls fitted to a Fujitsu PC
