Computer savy HELP

So I formated my hard drives last night everything was working fine.
Then this morning I changed the screen resolution from 800x600 to 1020x768 after that it just crashed. I restarted my computer and I got a message from motherboard saying "system failure due to CPU overprocessing." :x

So is my cpu toasted?
System specs. Running XP
Motherboard Asus Kv8 deluxe
CPU AMD athlon 64 3200
1gig memory.
2x 80 ATA drives

Re: Computer savy HELP

do you have a video card? if so what type/name/manufacturer

did you try to overclock your CPU in Bios?

Even if you don't have a video card and/or didn't overclock your cpu I would go into your bios (hitting the delete key as your computer boots up, just keep tappin' it until you come to a blue screen w/ yellow letters.) From there, you should see an option to "load last known good configuration." Select that and save/exit and see what happens.

Yeah I bought an ATi radeon card don't remember the exact model but it was just basic nothing fancy.
Yes the cpu is overclocked for 3 years and it was working fine.

Yeah usually theres a screen that has the motherboard's name and in the right corner it would say hit del for setup. Now the only thing that shows is a black screen and has audio message that states the cpu over processing.

Re: Computer savy HELP

hmm ok

well try hitting delete through that anyway... if that doesnt work make sure your heatsink/fan are installed properly.

oh also, check to make sure the power to the CPU fan is properly plugged into the motherboard

Re: Computer savy HELP

I overclocked my last computer and I heard it does cut down on long-term cpu efficiency so it could be toast. I would say there's probably something wrong with the video card trying to render a screen 1020x768. You may have to knock it back down to 800x600. I know when I had my compaq cpu in high school I tried to run a 256 mb voodoo 5 and it crashed my computer the next day. I also didn't have the agp version, but the pci board so it made things even more difficult to play on it. A few years later I went to walmart and bought a 32 mb pny verto or something and it shut my cpu down as well. I learned after that to just not put a video card in a terd cpu. With what you have it should be able to run up to 128mb fairly easy.

there should be no problems with a modern video card running on that cpu... systems are a bit better built now-a-days then when those voodoos were around imo

Re: Computer savy HELP

Changes in resolution are delegated strictly to the video card, are they not? I don't see how an increased load on the video card would adversely affect the CPU. Have you made sure you have the latest drivers? I had problems hooking up my HDTV until I downloaded updated drivers on my Nvidia 7600GS.

Re: Computer savy HELP

That could be it. The cpu should still fire up to the desktop even if the drivers are out of date. Most of the time they come with barebone drivers to get you to the desktop. My first instinct is the video card is not in good shape, but it could also mean the motherboard or processor could be on the fritz.

Re: Computer savy HELP

Worst comes to worse, pull the case cover and pop the Bios battery off for a few seconds, see if clearing the Bios will do anything for you. Of jumper it to clear it, if you happen to have your MB manual laying around to find out the pins.
