CPU and fam replaces, computer still crashes

Hi everyone,

I had an older thread advising that my computer was crashing randomly, about thirty minutes into operation. I bought a replacement CPU, brand new fan and installed it. Today I turn it on for the first time in over a week and after one hour of operation, it crashed once again.

I left it on for over two hours just in case but it was crashed. The CD drive still worked, just nothing else.

There are many reasons to a computer to crash.
- Failing MoBo
- Failing HDD
- CPU temperature due to dust on heat sink.
- PSU

The cpu and heat sink are new. Exit step is to replace the MoBo. Any advice on how to change that? I have a Amd x2 athlon.

Who has replaced the CPU and heat sink?
Good thermal paste was applied correctly?

CPU, Memories and MoBos aren't interchangeable. They have to be same "family".

You must give us all your hardware specs.

Use HWiNFO - Download
It's a portable version. Don't need to install. Extract and run.

New PC replaces Homegroup host, but won't let me join
I originally set up a Homegroup from a PC I have now replaced. My new PC recognises that there is a Homegroup, but won't let me join - it says the password is wrong. Of course, I can't see the password because I can't join ... "There's a hole in my bucket ..."
