Default need help.....pleeeaaase

hi all,

My desktop's screen keeps blacking out for about a second or 2 every now & then. Also it all freezes up occasionally, and now its freezing and then re starting. what the..... it never did this before i removed the cpu fan to clean. i did some research on this forum and thats when i discovered the whole thermal paste issue. So last night I cleaned the surfaces with isopropyl alcohol and then applied the thermal paste. This morning I turned the computer on and straight away the screen blacked out again. Then when I tested my game, the whole system froze, shut down and rebooted. aaaarggh, what can I do now??

maybe try updating your drivers?

or maybe check for loose parts in the pc?

Or if not try changing the parts from your friends pc or where someone has the correct pc parts for yours.

that sounds like a nasty problem, but then again it could be your cpu
