A computer (Pentium 4 3.0GB)I built for a friend some time ago, when switched there is no bleep noises but a voice saying (System failure CPU test) and then goes no further and won't shut down, but has to be switch off.can you please advise.
TRy resetting the BIOS to default settings and retry.Also check CPU fan is running could be a fied CPU.
Also check power supply plug to CPU.And try powering from another PSU. PSU power to CPU failure wold give same error.
If it will not shut down, My guess is MOBO failed
The above may have been due to PSU blowing. As I had same problem
Thanks for the info I cant get to the computer just yet I will try your suggestions later and if I am still in trouble I will ask again Many thanks again
On mine the PSU took out the MOBO and CPU
