CPU Possibly Overheated?
Hello ! Have a quick concern .. as of a couple weeks ago I noticed my computer wasnt Getting a Picture, and Am just now posting regarding it, Ive been too Busy to try and fix it. Heres the deal.. I get No picture on any sort of Moniter, However the motherboard and Cpu heatsink gets power. The whole computer is being Powered. I hooked up the Moniter cable to the VGA Slot on the board and still no Picture whatsoever. Everything is running and Sounds / Looks ok on the Board. ALSO .. This is Key, But I noticed after I looked at it that 1 cpu Pin wasnt attached whatsoever through the board, As in clipping down to the OTHER side of the Board. Little prongs Come through. So one was out entirely, and another wasnt even fastened Through. To Clarify the first one the Whole heatsink pin was out, and the Other was in but not Fastened On the other Side. Could, possible, one corner of the cpu Might have gotten too hot to run? I looked at it, doesnt seem to look any different. However if , lets say, the pin wasnt fastened and came out, It might have gotten really hot. I keep it running all the time. Overnight / day Could it have burnt out? Without noticing? Ive tried just about every other Option unless people suggest. No beeps / or anything. Vista Home on the drive. If you need me to clarify Info, Ask please. If thats the case I will order another cpu. If people think Its toast. Thanks ! Steve
Also Cpu is Core 2 Duo 2.66 .. A year or so old now
