Hello everyone, My system freezes occasionally and I get the informative "system failed CPU test" message. I also hear an annoying beep which is probably coming from the cpu fan but I am not sure about that. I think my computer is quite old, so it might be the case that the CPU is dead but I hope there's still a way to fix it. Of course the first thing I did in order to solve the problem was searching in the manual of the motherboard to find some information about the above-mentioned informative message. ASUS suggest that I should check the CPU if it's properly installed. I removed the CPU, heat sink and fan firstly. After that, I cleaned the cooling paste from the CPU and heatsink, added cooling paste to the CPU and I assembled all the parts onto the motherboard. I also tried to find out more about the minidump-files generated by Windows, but I couldn't find anything interesting. If anyone could help me fixing the system freezes and the other above-mentioned problems, I would be glad to hearing a solution. Thanks in advance. Greets, goalie99. The last minidump-file is attached to this message.
