I can't stand this piece of trash motherboard! Any help is appreciated before i go and get it replaced.

The problem is, when i try turning my computer on, it says "System failure, CPU is hot." A screen doesn't come up saying that, the actual computer says it through the speakers. NOTHING is overclocked in this computer, and the temperature is reading as an average of 95 degrees farenheit.

ASUS P4C800 Deluxe
P4 3.00 ghz 800mhz FSB
1 gig Corsair CMX memory (3200, 2 512 piece for dual channel)
ATI All in wonder 9700 pro

I really am clueless about this. I've taken out the motherboard battery and that doesn't do anything. The only way i've gotten this computer to turn on is just tampering with it for 2 hours at a time, and i have not turned it off in almost a week because i have to do the same thing over to finally get it to turn on.

Has anyone else had this problem before? Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Check if your CPU fan is plugged in to the right fan socket. Also disable the Voice warning and temp warning options (if there are any) inside the BIOS.

I love my Delta 60HP 7000 RPM fan that puts out more dB then CFM :eek:
