    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

    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.
