    Hi guys,

    I thought that I would post my problem here anyway. I hope someone can Help.

    I have a problem with a soltek sl-75dvr5 motherboard. It has a amd1800+ chip
    and 512mb ddr333 ram

    The problem is at start up. I have take everything out apart from the
    graphics card, and when I turn on the cpu fan seems to rev like someone has
    there foot on an accelerator. if I take the ram out it starts ok till post
    checks the ram, it get the correct beeps code for no ram, and then the
    revving starts. I first thought power supply, but with it starting correctly
    till it looks for ram I am now stumped. I don't have a multi tester so have
    no way of checking the power supply.

    The problem started when the owner of the computer replace the heatsink.
    Before that it was running ok.

    Does anyone have any ideas

    Thanks

    James

    Do you have the green lite on the motherboard?
