Boom!

Hi guys, my XP just died on me, came home to a blank screen, tried it again this morning, no joy, everything fires up but no post or anything, im gonna be trying to find the fault today, by swapping parts between the two AMD rigs in the house..... anyone got any idea why a CPU would fry at 30c ? i dont have any water leaks. I think it could just be that a power surge a while back could have damaged something and it just gave up!

anyway, im open to other suggestions of the cause. thanks guys

found out the problem......... it leaked! that or its condensation that was building up while i was using iced water........ thing is the CPU was waterproofed (except L1 brtidges cos i needed to re-unlock) anyway, if they were shorted is that the CPU killed?

Oh damn..what a shame.

I think shorting the L1 can kill the CPU.

Id strip it down and put all the other components in the airing cupboard to be safe.

Are you going to get another XP or hold out for a thoroughbread...or will finance limit you to a duron.

I think im gonna put up with a p3-450 and wait for barton at least!

I can hopefully claim back the cost of CPU and mobo from insurance (mobo fried too water was tainted white, something burned in there) then start putting togeather a rack cabinet and stuff

I'm sorry to read of your loss, Random Nonsense. Bruddah, water cooling still scares me, to be honest. Ouch! Athlon XP plus the mainboard. Might be a good idea to memorize your responses to Mr Insurance Claim's seemingly easy and innocent questions.

I just hope you learned some type of lesson from this . . . .

Otherwise you've just wasted a lot of nice parts for nothing . . . .
