    Recently, my computer seemed to have crashed. It would randomly shut off while i was away and eventually never turned back on. At first it would just keep rebooting, then i would get a blue screen finally to the point where the power button on the machine did nothing, the fans wouldnt even move.
    I had an Asus P4S533 motherboard and a P4 2.0 running on XP.
    I tested the PSU and it was fine, tried another video card..nothing.
    So i figured the MB was shot, so I bought a Giga-byte GA-8VT800.
    Using the same processor on the new MB, I turned on the machine only to have it freeze in the BIOS sequence.
    It froze at the point where it recognizes the CPU and it gave me this message and then it froze:
    Health OK
    Main Processor Pentium 4 2.66
    CPUID: 0524 Patch ID:001E

    ...at this point it would freeze and i could do nothing.
    My processor is NOT a 2.66 but a 2.0....
    Could my CPU be fried also?
    Someone please help me out...im getting frustrated
