Check the thermal paste/compound

Re-set and re-applied CPU/Heatsink/Termal compound.. No change.
Everything seems to be in working order.. until the automatic shutting down of CPU due to heat.

As to purchacing any further eq for my machine.. not until I have this figured out. I have a friend sourcing another board and CPU. p/s is ok.

Thanks for input guys..

Could a problem with the BIOS do this?

I suspect that it is possible, but can't confirm this either.

Anyone have a spare? (Near Nova Scotia Canada? ) :)

Can't hurt to ask. ;)

Later and thanks again.

If you have a volt meter I would test the voltage coming from the power supply to the CPU/Motherboard.
this is the only other reason I can see that the CPU would get super hot super quick.

Make sure no kind of smart fan is turned on in the bios. Make sure your CPU fan is actually spining. Make sure cool and quiet is disabled.

Fans, etc are all normal.

I do not have another CPU to use, or Mboard, or BIOS chipp. :(
Thanks though.

re-flash another version of your BIOS. Sounds like either a bBIOS problem, or the thermal sensor on the chip is dodgy. In which case you need to get a new chip.

Turn off any fail safe things in BIOS that are like 'shutdown if over [temp]'

You're sure its not actually overheating right?

Ahh..

Well, on the BIOS I can't as the machine is not staing on long enough to flash it. and I do not have a second mboard.

As to 100% sure as to the over heating. I have never seen a chip overheat as fast as this apepars to be without smoke and even fire. So, no, I am not sure if it IS actually over heating.

I am having trouble getting CPU or another Mboard. I have been unsuccessful in finding another BIOS chop as well. If I could get any one of these three items I could signifacantly reduce possibilities.

Again; Thanks.

Possibly, but no matter. Since PCI-E I can't replace either CPU or Mboard. :P But it does make for a good excuse ;) :)

Boy, I guess this post is as dead as my machine.

So, anyone think the BIOS is ok yet? :) heh

Maybe by end of March Break I will have time to ponder again.
It is interesting to see what has developed since it's purchace.

In time, a new machine anyways, or so it should be by now.

Keep your stick on the ice.

I'm pretty sure of one thing, AMDs tend to freeze up then physically fry--not shut down; therefore, your CPU temp thermometer is bad. Get a new motherboard. I got a PC Chips mobo from Newegg not too long ago for about $40. Not the best, but Socket A motherboards are becoming very rare.

Since I haven't been using it in a while, maybe there has been a miraclous recovery, and the machine will boot long enough for BIOS flash, or what heve you.. :/

But I do intend to turn it back on to see if there is anything new.

I'll let you all know.
