Wagner you are a good man and great at following help instructions. And no you are not an Idiot as you described yourself. And by the way, I think your English is EXCELLENT.

I am so glad that I was able to finally solve your problem. If you care to, you might hit the REP icon in the upper right of my last post.

Take care and best regards

Hats off to johnnya for precisely pinning down the improper installation of the Processor resulting in the processor heating up and shutting down. I bungled there since you said you had replaced the Processor (and I had assumed you would have done it properly) and still experienced the problem.:) A rep goes to johnnya for the good work done.

And ya, I once had a similar problem when I upgraded my AMD Processor. The new processor will shut down after a few minutes while running a program. I checked the processor temperature and found it high and so knew for sure that the processor was defective.(No improper installation of heat sink here. I had cleaned up the old paste, applied a new coat and had installed the processor as per the instructions to the dot as given by AMD.)

The RMA should go through the service engineer of the seller. When I took it to him, he merely put the processor in his jig ran the POST and declared the processor good. I gave him a good shout asking him to load the processor and check rather than running it on idle in which condition it may work forever.:) Hmmm.. Now he knew that he is dealing with someone more professional and sent the processor to AMD. AMD replaced the processor:).
