    What is dead, Motherboard or Processor?

    Hello everyone, last one year I used computer and now there some serious damage happen in the system. Before one week, there is some problem in the system and hence I done the windows 7 64 bit version installation. Then yesterday, when I try to turn on the system then it immediately turns back off. The PSU of the system is goes onto the save mode. I think the motherboard or the processor is to be dead. My system configurations is si gf615m-p33 motherboard, AMD Phenom 955 black Edition, 4GB RAM, 1gb ATI Radeon hd 4670, and a 650 power supply. Any help would be appreciates.

    If the motherboard is to be goes into the dead situations then we can’t able to find first that the processor is too dead or not. Hence, you need to first check the power supply of the motherboard. If there is something issues in that connectivity then solve this trouble. It could be possible that the power supply has to be cute. Then do this task and check the system is boot or not. If it is not boot then try to go to the BIOS setting. If you haven’t able to go to the BIOS setting then I think there is serious damaged happen in the motherboard. You need to change the mobo.

    I recommended you to check the loose cable of the motherboard. Sometimes there might be possible that the loose connections happen in the system motherboard and hence the mobo not work correctly. Then first check its power cable. Also check the CMOS battery of the system and if possible then insert new CMOS battery onto this mobo. Check the inserted expansion card of the mobo. If anyone of the card is not inserted properly then the system not works correctly.

    As per you mentioning in the post, if the problem is not in the internal software then I recommended you to check the RAM of the system. This might be help to find out the actual problem. Also check the system with the other CPU. For doing this task you need expert advice. You can also refer the manual and test the processor. Then first unplug the CPU and then insert the new CPU on the system. This will be helps to find out the CPU is dead or not.

    I suggest you to try to reset the BIOS of the system. For doing this task, you need to unplug the CMOS battery of the mobo. Then first open the CPU panel and unplug the CMOS carefully from the mobo. After that you need to wait some 10 minutes. Then after 10 minute insert the CMOS battery properly on the mobo. This task will be helps to reset the BIOS of the system. Then try to boot the system. It might be helpful to solve the trouble.

    Hey dude, before deciding any anything I suggest to first try to power on the system. Then listen the sound beep of the CPU. If there is something hardware damage happens in the system then it gives the sound noise. Then listen that noise and try to understand the meaning of that sound. After that you need to read the manual of the system. The manual gives the descriptions of the sound noise of the CPU in troubleshooting section. Then read that section and understand the meaning of the sound. Then as per the mentioning solutions just solve that error properly from the system.

    I also faced the same kind of trouble and I follow the same task to find and fix the troubles of the system. I use this sound noise detections method and it really works. I listen the sound and then read the manual for understanding the meaning of that sound. Then I found in the troubleshooting section, the meaning of the noise. It mention the processor is not working properly and hence the mobo gives this sound m=noise. Then I replace the processor and now the system works fine.
