I bought the component parts and built my own computer. It ran beautifully for for a day and then it stopped working just a few minutes ago.

I'm running an AMD Athalon 64 on a biostar T-Force motherboard.

The computer powers up but won't boot. For future reference what is the acceptable running temperature for an AMD processer?

I'm guessing that you have gone back over all of your connections. When you say it quit working does this mean that it turned off completely? What happens when you try to turn it back on? Are any of the LEDs on the motherboard lit? If not I would suspect the PSU.

I have a TForce 6100 939 with a Athlon 3200+ which runs at 23 degree celcius.

Go here to get AMD's specs. After you have filled out the drop-down list, click "view details" for your particular cpu. Voltages, temps, etc will be listed there.

All the LED's are lit, the DVD-R is lit the Hard Drive is connected as is everything else. But I'll go back over everything again.

Thanks for the link.

I wouldn't think you burnt it out just like that. If you had it running for a day, it should be ok. Since you built it yourself, I would suggest reseating the components (ram, vid card,etc) and doing a bios clear with the jumper.

Sound like a hardware problem - try this "stripdown" to isolate the problem: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/70216/hardware-troubleshooting-via-system-stripdown/

FWIW - EVERY computer that I have ever built has always had a connection problem. No matter how hard I try to avoid them they keep happening! So now it's SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) for me to triple check each connection and then expect to go back into the case to find the one that I missed!
