I have 2 desktops :
Compaq 5610F - motherboard MZN68-LA
HP 8300F - motherboard MCP61PM-HM
My question is can i interchange the processors between these 2 computers? My HP computer powers on but nothing else. Fans run but no video. Im thinking both the motherboard and processor are bad but i need to confirm that i can switch any part between these two computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This is my problem :
Computer powers on, fans run, no video or post or beeps. Here is a list of what i tried :
I disconnected everything, cleaned heat sink, processor and reapplied thermal grease. Took all ram out except 1 stick, harddrive, and powered on. Fans run but no video,no beeps,nothing, also fans seem to be running really fast and really loud.
Tried all of these :
1. known working hard drive
2. known working ram
3. I took the processor out and put it on this motherboard - MZN68-LA (not 100% sure of compatibility)didnt boot up
4. I tried a known working processor from my other desktop which is a SR5610F. (not sure of compatibility) didnt boot up
Please any suggestions would be very helpful.
