Never say never.

It depends on what is damaged. If it's a voltage regulator then it could damage the CPU. Most times it is in the north/south bridge chips, a pci card, video card or in the RAM which would not damage the CPU.

Have you turned off "restart after failure" so you actually get to see the fault data windows displays? It will poin to the source of the fault. There is also a windows fault log file stored on the HD somewhere. Search the other posts there are several with good desriptions of how to get the failure data. Then post the data and one of the fault log guru's will intepret it for you.

i found this on another forum but i am not overclocking. and i havent played with the ram timings or anything. what should the ramtiming settings be?

A two-tone siren(like an ambulance) - This is caused by "overclocking" the voltages to a setting that the system cannot support. Please press insert and the reset button to reboot back to factory settings. This is also caused by overheating, and if this is the case, allow suitable ventilation for the system.

hmm the last time i got a siren noise it was because a fan was not spinning.
Things to check you have your cpu fan pluged into the cpu header part, and the cpu fan has a speed detector wire (yellow wire). also check all the other fans plugged into the board are spinning

ahhh it might have cpu protection like my asus a7n board has got as when i fitted my latest heasink my thermal probe got in the way and it did not sit right (though i did not know this) and after a few seconds it turned off. Moved the thermal probe and worked like a dream glad you have fixed it :)
