Hi can anyone help please. I have a Medion MD 8088 (PC MT6) serial number 11169010060342 with a Micro Star motherboard MS-7048. It is running XP home addition.
My computer was continually running through a boot cycle without starting up, after reading a few forums I opened it up and cleaned it out. Whilst doing this I managed to damage the CPU (intel pentium 4, 3ghz/512/800) (SL6WK) which I have replaced with one off E-bay. My computer turns on but I get a long beeping noise then a gap then the same long beeping noise. This just goes in a loop, there is no display on the screen. I have pulled the memory and the video card as suggested in the forums and made sure they are back in properly but I still get the same problem. Can anyone HELP!!!!!

Hi, It is very easy to bend pins on the CPU.
Other thought is that the CPU you got is defective or not compatible. Is it the same as the old one?

Cheers
Roger

Hi Roger, I managed to break one of the pins in the old CPU and got a replacement. It is the same as the one that came out apart from the amount of capacitors in the middle. I checked the Intel web sight and the chip was released in both formats but is interchangable.

They may not be interchangeable unless MSI says it will work with the BIOS version you have.

For instance if this is your old one pentium 4, 3ghz/512/800) (SL6WK) and you replaced it a Pentium 4 3Ghz/1M/800 that would be a different chip.

If your motherboard only supported Northwood P4s and you install Prescott P4 it won't work.

Good Luck
Roger
