    Hello,

    I bought a computer on eBay with 1 Gig of ram and an Intel Pentium D 805 2.66Ghz processor. It had an AsRock board and when I first attempted to use it which was about 6 weeks after I bout it, it seemed to overheat because it would just shut down and stop on me. At that point I decided to upgrade the board to an Intel D945PVS, once the new board arrived I was excited but cautious, I made sure to use an anti static wristband and I installed the Board/RAM/CPU/heat sink & fan/ e-GeForce 6200 Video card and the hard drives. But almost as soon as I plugged it in I heard a siren sound coming from the board and then the computer shut off. I have attempted a few times to restart it but it continues to follow the same pattern of sounding a siren and shutting down.

    I’m not sure what to do at this point, I’ve contacted Intel customer support through their website but that was no help. I know that the Desktop Boards product guide state that the Siren sound is for CPU Overheat (on reboot) but I don’t know what I can do to correct the issue. I have purchased some new thermal CPU Heat Sink compound and thoroughly cleaned the old compound away and the fan is properly positioned and operating as it appears it should.

    I did notice some slight discoloration on the CPU over some of the pins (sort of like a slight darkening). Can anyone share their ideas regarding what could be the reason for this?



    Thanks,
    Kimmy

    my guess it that the cpu is fried, the 805D was a favorite cpu for folks to overclock the crap out of, and since you bought off ebay:eek:

    Yeah sounds like someone slopped cpu grease over the cpu and then fried it and sold it on ebay...I would go after the seller.

    If you have a local cpu vendor, see if they can test it for free or if they charge, talk them into crediting you towards a new purchase if yours is indeed fried...

    I used to have a small shop nearby (I moved) that the guy would do all kinds of tests and diagnostics and what not totall free, courtesy - that plus good prices is what brings customers back...

    Keep us posted..

    :cool:

    I would but the seller was so polite that (like a fool) I left them positive feedback before I even plugged the computer in. I guess this has taught me a lesson regarding eBay.


    Thanks for the advice, I think I will try to find a local vendor, at least that would let me know for sure if my CPU is dead or not.




    Does anyone have a suggestion about what style of socket 775 Pentium I should purchase? This is my current board Intel D945PVS.





    Best wishes,
    Kimmy

    I tried this but I heard an immediate siren sound and the computer quickly shut off completely again.

    BTW, I do have the Thermal paste between the CPU and heat sink and I spent about 30 minutes applying it because I didn’t want to make a mistake, so I followed the instructions well by applying a thin layer and I moved the heat sink gently and slightly to remove any air gap.

    Here is a list of the supported processors for the D945PVS board.

    If you are interested in a Pentium D 960, 950, 945 or 925 please read the notations under the sSpec number.

    Also note that with any of the processors it MAY be necessary to update the BIOS. With Intel boards the Express BIOS update is very easy.

    Don't let that stop you I have done it many times where I inadvertently left feedback too soon and then discovered a problem. You can email them, then if they do not respond do a dispute at Paypal. feedback or not, just note you discovered this afterwards if it ever comes up.
    If you did not use Paypal, and shame on you that is where they really come in handy, then do an eBay dispute....

    ebay scares me a bit, now it scares me even more knowing that half of those positives are probably folks just like you who responded too soon, great.
    I'm not going to be that surprised if your cpu is fried, there was a lot of buzz on the internet about the D805 being very cheap and very overclockable, so I'm sure there was a rush of pimply-faced, pablum-puking, prepubescents out there that were cranking up their FSB's to hither-to unforeseen speeds only to hear a small popping noise and a puff of smoke.
