I have an old Dell Dimension 4400 from 2002 and it has a Pentium 4 1.6 GHZ in it, my mom used it for a couple of months with frequent freezing problems and crashes. After awhile the computer failed to boot and the power button just shows an amber light. After this the computer was stored away. 14 years later, i decide to go take a look at it and it turns out the CPU had absolutely no thermal paste on it to begin with (so i suspect it might have fried). I take off the heatsink to and feel the CPU to see if it heats up and it's stone cold. although other components connected to the motherboard are heating up just fine, the fans are spinning and so is the Hard Disk. when i take off the CPU and try booting, nothing happens at all, and when I put the CPU back in everything starts spinning up but the computer still doesn't boot. Considering the difference with the CPU in and the CPU out, does this mean that the CPU is still working? even though it's stone cold?
