Solved new cpu never stops working

July 31, 2011 at 06:38:59
Specs: Windows 7
new cpu never stops working after 40hr. Fan is running all the time , red light flicks every second, and screen saver never appears. Which tells me that it's working on something. Builder said to let it run for a week or two. Think I'm being put off ??
Thanks

"Will take it back and give them another try at resolving problem."

Just my 2¢ worth, but I'd suspect he's playing on your lack of knowledge of computers. Personally, if you spent any significant money on the machine, I'd ask for it back and avoid that "builder" from now on...

Builder said to let it run for a week or two Newly built machines usually run for 24 hours or so. It's called a burn in period. That seems a bit extreme. It's a machine, not a bottle of wine. It won't get better with age.

I'd turn it off.

Personally I have never heard of such a silly thing. There is no use to letting it run for no reason.

Next time buy a computer from a big name place that has a warranty and service and good support technicians. This guy is an ID 10T

There is just a lot I don't know about computers, and sometime we have to learn the hard way. Will take it back and give them another try at resolving problem.

Thanks
