hi all
i recently got some new bits for my pc. 1 was a new motherboard. I installed it all and turned the PC on. All worked fine and it started to boot to windows but as i wanted to set the time etc in bios, i had to restart. So i restart, go to the bios menu and as i was changing the time it crashed!. so i went to restart and all i get is no signal to monitor message. So i thought maybe my new graphics card went dead, so i replace with my old but still the same. So stripped the system down to just motherboard, processor,heatsink, graphics card, power and stick of ram. Turn it on and still the same prob. by now im annouyed as i don't know the problem. So i decided to change the processor with an old one and what do u know it works! So i got anew processor (amd 2800+ xp) put that in and it works too. So i put everything back together, turn it on and guess what? got that error again. So i stripped it back down and it still don't work.

So im asking any idea on what is going on? and how can i solve it?

Are you still experiencing problems with this?
Can you give us an update?

Is the CPU frying because of an overheating problem? Is the heatsink well seated on the CPU?
