You need to explain what exactly happens when you push the power button,
does a logo appear?
Does a screen with white lettering come on (post screen)

Thank you for the reply, sorry there wasn't enough info at first. There have been some improvements since I posted. We get the start up beep and it allows us into the bios. I got into the computer health and all looks fine, the numbers and such are normal. I think it might have over heated, but now we can't get out of the screen. Computer completely froze. Before it wouldn't let us this far, but we left it alone and got that. Any suggestions? Thank you for any responses.

Please post the system specs as near as you can
Could you post the voltages and temps from "PC Health" ?

Make sure the heatsink is clear of dust, this would cause a overheat situation, use a can of compressed air to blow out but becarefull not to invert the can because liquid can come out, instead set the computer on the edge of a desk so you can move the can up and down without turning it on its side.
Make sure the heatsink is not loose in any way.
It could also be the power supply among other things so if you could get the temps and voltages that would help.

Act. Temp. 70 C/ 158 F
System Temp. 23 C/ 73 F
CPU Core Temp. 42 C/ 107 F
CPU Fan Speed 2343 RPM
AUX Fan 1 Speed 3013 RPM
CPU Core Voltage 1.28 Volts
ATX +3.3v 3.21 Volts
ATX +5v 4.89 Volts
ATX +12v 11.67 Volts
AGP VDDQ 1.52 Volts
DDR Voltage 2.49 Volts
Battery Voltage(+3v) 3.13 Volts
Standby Voltage (+5v) 4.97 Volts
The computer freezes when we get into that screen. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

The voltages and temps look ok there are some I have questions about, the cpu core voltage is low that why I need to know what cpu you have.
I am not sure what Act. temp is but 70c usually is high but will look into it

Motherboard: ABIT Guru 1 Bit VIA 1.49M
CPU: Pentium 4, 2.40A

Posted 26 December 2005 - 07:36 PM
Power supply: Not quite sure, all we could find was the True 430 Watt Max on it
Hope this helps. Thank you for your help!

Does this northbridge heatsink have a fan on it and when you can power on is it spinning?

Look on the motherboard next to were it says Abit there should be a model number something like VT7 or IS7, This could help so I know exactly what board it is.
We are going to have to start taking things apart are you comfortable with this?
How many sticks of ram are in it if more than one try taking one out.
