I just had a diagnostic run on my computer and was told that the Socket 775 processor has issues.
I'm unable to find anyone that sells this processor as it has been phased out
Is there another solution to my problem without having to replace the entire system? I'm not sure if I can upgrade and, if so, to what.
My system is, I suppose, by all standards considered a dinosaur. I purchased it in 2006. It is an HP Pavillion. I can't give many specifics on it as the tower is in the computer repair shop right now. (as I mentioned.. they can't do anything for me).
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Good evening everyone. Such a noob at these things.
I wanted to take the time to thank all of you for your replies.
It turns out it was my motherboard that failed. I had a new one put in my computer and all seems to be well. The fan is a bit noisy but that can be taken care of in time.
I appreciate the replies I got from all of you and have saved them for future reference.
