I didnt wanna dust in my computer room so i brought it to the basement where 2 things went wrong. First, i tipped it over and second i tried to detach the cpu fan when the whole thing just came off. Including the cpu with the cpu latch still down. I examined the pins on the cpu and it seemed ok. Was able to socket back in without too much effort.
After i finished dusting i tried to power on and i could see lights and hear the fan but nothing on the monitor. I usually get one beep when booting but i dont even hear that.
My system spec:
Cpu: amd phenom x4 9xx
Mb: msi 970g45 or something like that
Ram: 4 gb 1600mhz
Gpu: gtx 460
Hdd: wd black 1tb
Psu: corsair 80+ 500W
Case: some cheap corsair case but ample air flow
I was running farcry 3 at almost max settings when it just crashed
Sry for the long post guys. Any help is appreciated
did you bend the cpu pins back after you found they were bent?
sometimes the pins do nothing and its fine, other times they control stuff like the fsb and the mem controller.
