Re: comp wont start, think i fried my cpu
It seems like it might be something with you HDD.
Since you can get into safe mode, maybe try reinstalling the OS?
Just trying to rule out the possibilities.
CPU dont really fry that easily, the only way i have seen it fried is when people Up the voltages too high. When the CPU gets too hot, it will just shut itself down. Now, this doesnt mean you should remove the heatsink when your computer is on.
