tabor Posted June 23, 2009 Share Posted June 23, 2009 So I think my CPU just died yesterday, parts were purchased more than 3 years ago, so it's out of warranty. It's an AMD Athlon X2 4600+ AM2. I left my computer on, and walked away, came back half an hour later, and computer is completely shut off. I power it back on, all fans turn on (video card, cpu fan, psu fans), but nothing comes on screen. I say the CPU is dead because I have a usb bracket that came with the motherboard, and has 4 LEDs that describes the nature of the problem. All 4 LEDs were red, and according to the motherboard manual, the CPU is either incorrectly installed or damaged. Since the rest of the parts of the PC are still good, and I want to salvage whatever I can use, I'm wondering if it is worth "upgrading". There's a AMD Athlon X2 5200+ on ebay for $70, Retail box. I couldn't find much on newegg for the AM2 sockets. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
