    I am having more problems with my IBM thinkcentre motherboard.

    If you saw my other post you know about the bad capacitor that I replaced. I just got around to testing it today, because I had to wait for my new SATA hard drive & SATA power to molex cable to ship. Everything worked fine for a few hours, but I'm having the same problem I did before. Apparently that wasn't the problem (although the capacitor did need to be replaced because it was bad).
    The video signal gets all "scrambled" and there are purple lines on the screen, the computer freezes and I have to turn it off with the switch on the power supply.
    I don't know if it's overheating or what. I opened it and it was cool. Can a bad processor cause this?
