I have 3 Problems
(please tell me which one you are addressing via the number 1/2/3):
1) I found a processor that was the same exact type ( I.E.: Pentium 4 aka Celeron D as I have been told AND my computer says) in my desktop, but was a different speed than the original. I tried to install it, and it worked fine at first. I would get this error message telling me that I may need to check for viruses, so I go to restart. This time, I turn the power on, and I hear this *beep* and the computer shuts down 5 seconds later.
Did I fry the processor? Or what is the problem? I also tried starting it without a hard drive, and got the same results.
2) When I try to start up a different computer I keep getting this "Media Test Failure" followed by "Exiting PXE-ROM" or something like that. What does this mean?
3) I go to start up yet another computer of mine, and it says the pc could be in danger to viruses (telling me to check for viruses - how would I do this?) and/or run a HDD check to see if I have a "corrupt" hard drive. How would I do this as well?
I turn it off, and change the hard drive I get a "Boot Failure", restart, same thing. Turn it off, put a different HD in, and it tells me the same virus thing.
Thanks for any help, and anything (except hate comments) will be greatly appreciated!
Would the same type of processor (i.e. both Pentium 4's) but with a different speed work in the same slot(s)?
