Hi all,

My Athlon X2 6000+ Fan starts to spin and after a few seconds it stops, after some seconds it start again and then stops, repeatedly. All other peripherals seems to be working. But I can't POST. No Mobo beep.

I tested the fan on chassis fan and it worked.

Did my CPU die?

Specs:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 600+
ASUS M2N-SLI
Power Supply C3 Tech 500W
GeForce 9600GT Accelero

Double check all your connections from the PSU,GFX card, and RAM. If thats all good try clearing your bios with the jumper (make sure to turn off your PSU first).
Keep us posted so we can better help you.

- I tried test only Mobo and CPU. The same result.
- I tried to clear the CMOS. Same result. Someone tell to let the jumper on 2-3 position for 8 hours to test it. I only do it for a several minutes. I will let it on clear position tonight and tomorrow I che the result.

My deductions are:

- PSU failing in my system.
- CPU died
- Mobo having problem to manage CPU Fan

I be thinking your PSU just up and died or is dying. I suggest not running your PC in til you get a new one you could end up frying other components.


I don't know what happens when a CPU fails (I've never seen it.) but I've had couple PSU's fail before. When the last one died all that came on was two case fans Something like what your's is doing.

You don't need to keep the jumper pin in the clear CMOS position for 8 hrs. (10-15 min. is fine).

I agree, it sounds like a PSU problem, buy a new one that you can return for credit just to test.

Many times in the past I've seen a PSU crash and take the MOBO with it, it sucks I've dealt with it myself. The new PSU will make sure that any new components you pick up won't be damaged during the troubleshooting stages. Good luck and welcome to the wonderful world of PC building.

I tested my peripherals on another Mobo and all of them worked. My mobo died! I bought a ECS GF8200A Black Series Mobo today. Will I have troubles again?

Here's an interesting thing I was able to dig up:

The Asus M2N-SLI board can't support processors with a TDP greater than 95W.

So, if the Athlon X2 6000+ you had was the 125W revision (Windsor architecture), it would probably do exactly as you described.

If, however, it was the Athlon X2 6000+ that runs at 89W (Brisbane architecture), the board still would have needed a BIOS flash from the base revision to at least version 0903 in order to properly recognize and POST the CPU.

But in any case, hope the ECS board works out for you!
