I have this problem that when I turn my computer on. It stops and tells me that "cpu is not working or has been changed" press f1 or del. When I press f1 it comes on fine and I can do most things but after a short time every thing freezes up. Can any one help, PLEASE.

Fist thing I'd check is to see if the CPU heatsink and fan are seated properly. Remember to follow electrical safety and anti-static precautions.

I think the experts here will probably want details of what your CPU and motherboard are.
