    built my cousin a computer and i also built my self a computer
    (same motherboard and cpu) mobo is ecs k7s5a pro with amd athlon xp 2200. everythin was going right for a month when
    i started hearing noises from the fan. turned out the blade of the cpu fan was hittin against the cable. so i pulled it gently and i guess i pulled a little to hard and the fan started going slower. i dont know what happened ???? the fan was still turning but not like new. i shut down the comp. i tried to restart but the computer wont turn on. i have a neon light in there and everytime i turn on the comp, the lights go on and everythin like normal. but after a couple of seconds, the lights start to flicker and the fans go slower. if i take the cpu out, everything works like normal everythin turns on and the lights and fans all work right. the cpu gets really hot and i mean really hot. when you turn on the comp, you could smell the heat. i dont think its normal. cpu isnt chipped, burned no, it looks like new nothin is burned. you cant see anythin wrong with it but i think somthin got fried when i tried to fix the fan.so, take out the cpu=everythin works, put in the cpu= lights flicker fans act weird. i put in a new atx power supply so thas not it.took out the mobo from case and turned it on outside so its not the case.

    Sounds like the cpu might be damaged - do not expect to see any visible damage. If your cousin has an identical system swap parts til you find the culprit.
