Troubleshooting Microprocessors

Troubleshooting microprocessor techniques solve the problems that arise due to the improper functioning of the microprocessor. The general problems that arise from the microprocessor are overheating and slow processing.

 

Overheating

A Microprocessor produces heat while processing the data. The microprocessor also overheats when it is performing beyond the recommended speed. Overheating can cause permanent damage to the microprocessor. Adequate cooling devices such as a processor fan must be installed to cool down the microprocessor.

To solve the problem of overheating of a microprocessor:

• Check that the processor fan is installed and functioning properly.

• Ensure that the heat sink compound is properly in contact with the processor and the heat sink assembly and is not dried up.

• Check the jumper settings on the motherboard and the BIOS settings to see that the Microprocessor is not overclocked.

• Check that the voltage supplied by the motherboard is compatible with the microprocessor.

• Check the motherboard manual to see that the motherboard supports the microprocessor.

Slow Processing or Hanging Issues

Microprocessor generally runs slow if there is some fault within it. A microprocessor can also run slow if the speed settings are not correct or due to some other fault in the system.

To solve the problem of slow processing:

• Check if the vendor has supplied the correct microprocessor.

• Check whether the microprocessor is compatible with the motherboard by referring to manual.

• Check the CPU fan whether it's properly rotating.

• Check if the microprocessor supports the applications that are running.

• Scrutinize the computer for viruses.

• Check the jumper settings on the motherboard and the BIOS settings of the processor.

No-Display

The computer may encounter a problem of no display. This problem may be due to processor Failure. At this moment, the system generates beep codes about the processor failure. You May have to replace the processor in such a situation.

To solve the problem of no display:

Check whether the CPU fan is functioning properly,

Make sure that the processor with heat sink assembly is properly installed.

Restore the BIOS setting to default state and check whether the problem has been resolved.

Replace the processor with the same specification. The speed, voltage, FSB and cache size of the new processor should match with that of the old processor.
