Faulty mobo or CPU ?

Postby pawRoot » 2018-02-08 11:18

Hi

Family member had a problem with his PC, one day the PC suddenly wouldn't boot, the fans inside were running at full speed. There was some error at boot saying something like the settings were resseted, press F2 to skip, cant remember exactly now.

I decided to clear CMOS, after that there was no signal output from video card at all, fans running full speed (i think video and cpu fans, not 100% sure), computer resetting itself.

He decided to give all parts to me, and i am thinking of resurrecting it back to life, (i7-2600k, would be a waste to not do it), but i have no idea if it's mobo or CPU.

I read that faulty CPU can give similiar symptoms to faulty mobo.

Opinions? :roll:

I've observed similar symptoms from faulty ram.

I swapped RAM to my main PC already and it was working fine.
