hi Guys need some input
when i boot the computer it stops booting up when the
floppy drive light comes on before it reaches the bios bootup
i think he's cooked his athlon 1400 cpu coz he had a problem with the old
fan/heatsink (he brought a new heatsink and fan )but i wouldn't mind some
input and ideas before i go ahead and replace the cpu
many thanks
steve

Check that he hasn't crunched the CPU's core or cooked it via improper
heatsink installation - if all he's done is replaced the heatsink then
it's almost certainly something along these lines.
