I loaded up the comp and starting playing wow all of the sudden i get this purple screen with white lines and i dont here my processor fan running. Now i shut down the computer and try and restart but as i do nothing happens. the powersupply is on and i hear things but the processer fan isnt. I didnt know what to do. I turned on my comp about 5 min ago and it starts. Ive have a amd athlon xp2000+ processor and have had it for about 3 years. I dont know what is wrong but now im on and wanna get some answers quick.

It sounds like you got a bad fan on your CPU heatsink,
causing the CPU to overheat.
You need to at very least,get that fan changed.
If you have to,put a whole new heatsink on it,
with some new thermal compound.
I wouldn't keep running it with that fan.

could be a dead psu fan / they wont run without them / its not too expensive to replace those / take a look at a zalman unit

dont forget the artic silver 5 thermal paste

is your cpu an athlon 64

http://www.zalmanusa.com/

look on that site for / CNPS7000-AlCu

then after selecting a cooling unit go to ebay or newegg.com to check prices >>> about $35.00

this is the way to fly >>> watch the installation movie included on the website

You need to check the cable to you drives eather one of then has gone bad or is not an 80 wire cable.
80 wire cable have a blue connector that goes to the mother board, a black connector that is for the master drive and a gray connector for the slave. They must be plugged in this way. :sayyes:
Some Info HERE
