"System failed CPU test" message, system freezing occasionally

  1. 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.

    Anyone a solution?

    The computer still reboots automatically. No one has a solution?

    Go here and test the memory and hard drive for errors:

    Also open the computer and make sure that the fans are clean and running and that there is not a lot of dust inside
