I just received my AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400+ Energy Efficient 2.8 GHz Dual-Core that I bought online today.. I installed it in my PC & I used thermal paste as well, procedure.
My PC was running fine for about 5-10minutes then it randomly just shut down? I tried turning it on again, booted for 30 seconds then shut down again.
I'm not sure if its my mother board or if i need a better cooler?
I'm using the standard cooler for the Acer Aspire M5100 as that's my computer.
But I'm also good on power.. I have a 400W Antec power supply ,
I'm running on ATI Radeon 5750 too so my computer was running perfectly fine before I installed my CPU
The cooler is the standard for the M5100 so.. I'm really not sure if Its my cooler or my motherboard that can't handle my new CPU
When I installed my new CPU it did these registry updates.. then It asked me to restart my PC, so I did, booted up fine then I got some weird system 32 error and my PC shut off, Plus I just inserted back my old CPU and it's not booting, as in making the "BEEP" sound, So I have no idea what just happened.. I'mma let it cool down for a bit to see what happens.
