Okay I'm a bit new to all this.
This is what I have:
AMD Athlon XP 3200+
Two 256 MBs or RAM (I don't know the brand)
Radeon 9600 XT 256
3 Hard Drives - 2 are Western Digital and the other I don't recall
ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe Motherboard
This is the problem - I just bought a new computer case and hooked everything up to my knowledge of how it should connect (For referance - The case I bought was an XG Viper www.xgbox.com). At first, it would load the splash screen of my motherboard and say "CPU failed due to overclocking" on the speakers. I went into the BIOS and fiddled a bit, saved and restarted. Same error happens.
Did this again and still got the error. I turned it off and went to bed. The next day I tried to work on it again but this time, nothing comes up on my screen. I still get the "CPU failed due to overclocking" error, but this time it's sometimes followed by another error saying, "CPU Fan failed".
I turned it off and then back on. This time, I just got the CPU Fan failure. I checked inside and the fan is connected aswell as turning when the computer is on. I changed the fan out and put in the old one and still get the error.
