ok, the regulars on the IRC should know the background behind this, but here goes...
I received a board today for my athlon 1GHz (not athlon XP) It uses a socket 462 slot. I popped in the cpu and the think would turn on the fan and sit there. hmm... I reseated everything, and still, the same thing. To make a long story short, I took off the heat sink and put the back of finger to the CPU and noticed that the thing was dead cold. Is this CPU toast, or is there a salvation for it?
If it is toast, I would be willing to send a full K6-2 450MHz set with sound, 10/100 Ethernet, USB and 4MB Video, for a low end athlon.
Any ideas or takers?
