mobo fried? cpu fried? none of the aforementioned?
I'll keep it short and simple.
Here's the story. I bought a Zalman heatsink for my friend's computer, installed it, tried using both artic silver 5 and the supplied thermal grease several times.
Fans spin, hdd powers up, NO POST or beeps.
Put in the stock heatsink, and no post or beeps.
Mobo is out of the case, with only: cpu, cpu fan, vid card, ram, psu connected.
I tried removing all ram and listening for the post beep errors, nothing.
Any ideas? thanks.
