Hardware failure: cpu or motherboard?

  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.
