Hardware failure: cpu or motherboard?

Discussion in 'IBM' started by Daniel Vallstrom, Apr 28, 2006.

  1. My pentium 4, 865PE computer is broken and I'm trying to guess if it's
    the cpu or motherboard that fails.

    For a couple of weeks, it was difficult to start/reboot the computer.
    It usually hung with some memory failure mobo diagnostic but after a
    few tries it booted. Then it started to become *very* slow, even after
    it booted. Now it seems completely broken.

    I have tried installing completely new memory but that didn't help.
    Does it look like it's the cpu that is broken? Thanks for any help.
