Re: I put to much thermal compound on my processor now my computer wont work!
get your hands on some rubbing alcohol and soak the pins in it for a short amount of time. 1-3 minutes should be enough to loosen the compound. then very carefully use a q-tip to clean off the pins. IF after doing so the computer still does not boot i need the exact model number of your mobo to check and see if it supports X2 processors.
