I posted earlier about how my processor was constantly running at 100% CPU when the computer wasn't doing anything. I even deleted unnecessary processes and restarted, and it would continue to run at 100%. Disk cleanup never gets past "compress old files." Today I turned on the computer and lo and behold when the computer is booting up hardware and quickly listing them in front of me, it gets to the processor first and stops. The computer is on, everything has power, but the computre doesn't do anything. I can't enter bios. I'm thinking a burned out processor, but it's less than a year old, it's the AMD 64 3000+. Any help as soon as possible would be greatly appreciated.

Have you clean you case and check to see if the fans are working. Heat is one of the bigest killers of computer compontants.

Did you make sure they were working before you put it all back together?

like whenever it usually boots up, the first thing i see is a black screen. Then it loads all the hardware, or reads them. It is very fast so i usually can't read them closely, but it lists all the hardware connected, then proceeds to the xp load screen. well, instead of filling up, it just shows the processor, and the comp stops, doesn't load or read or show any more hardware on the screen. So I'm stuck with just a black screen that has only one hardware component, the processor.

No it does not. I talked to a friend and he said he thinks the processor is burnt out. But if not that'll be great.

Can you download and install Everest home. I would like to know what your power supply is doing.

I can't get anywhere with the computer. I don't see how I am supposed to do that? But I'll download the program on this computer never the less.

The easiest and cheap thing to do next is to test the power supply. If you are willing to do it. Can you use a voltmeter? If not do you have a computer shop that will test just the power supply?
