Have an E Machine PC it is not booting up, so, I open up the computer. I saw the CPU fan was not running and the processor was hot. I went out purchase used CPU Celeron, the computer is doing the same thing and not booting up. Do you think the CPU and the mother board is bad. The power supply is good, the fan in power supply is working. I also used a power supply tester.


Thanks!

Was your old CPU a Celeron as well? Same speed?

You may want use the Clear CMOS jumper to clear the BIOS settings or you can pull out the CMOS battery for a few minutes.

Try reseating the RAM and video card as well. Or try a known good piece of RAM and a good video card. You can disconnect all the drives and remove any unneccessary PCI cards like a modem.

Hard to say what's bad, what kind of processor was in the MB? FWIW, Intel processors normally will shutdown to save themselves if they get too hot, it's pretty hard to burn one up from lack of cooling.
