So I replaced the powersupply and got a dual 1.42 module for my MDD, but after I install it, apple system profiler reads it as dual 417 mhz. Is the cpu bad or something? after just a few minutes of use it kernel panics. I thought it might be a heat issue, but I did apply thermal grease and temperature monitor.app (4.11) shows that the cpu board is running at 45-50 degrees.
Is this a bad cpu? Or is it still a heat issue? When I touch the copper heatsink (got this too), it's pretty warm considering it's running at 417mhz
what speed is your current motherboard? is it a 167mhz bus speed? as that is what the 1.42 needs if its the oem one. Also what speed RAM do you have in it? it needs the higher speed 2700 or better to run. Also are you running CHUD?
well, I tried reseating the processor, and not it won't boot at all. I guess the cpu is dead (original cpu boots fine). Starts up, no chime, fans soon go into full speed mode. I'd check the resistors, but the only site I know of seems to be down.
I have had a few MDD that do that. One ended up being the processor and the other a motherboard, worked out well, I just popped the good processor in the good motherboard and we had one good machine! lol.
MacBook Pro, 2.2GHz SR Core 2 Duo, 120GB HD, 2GB RAM, PowerMac G5, DP 2GHz, 2GB RAM, 1x500GB HD, Sonnet Tempo X4P, 2TB RAID, ATI 9650 256MB.
That would be fine and dandy, but I bought this one lol. Sadly I bought it under as is terms. Tis a shame However, I can't tell if it was defective or if I somehow screwed it up. I never actually got it running. And when I did, it was 417mhz...
