My question to you techies is around the working of a CPU.
Can a CPU be erratic and work sometimes or should it either or work or not work.
The CPU was working and then I changed the heatsink & fan (placed right way around) and now it did not boot up. I had problems with another PC and assumed the CPU was dead but then it worked once in the PC and then did not work after?
It's very easy for the hand to slip whilst pressing down to fit the heatsink tabs. Did you use a sharp pointed blade or screwdriver ??? I speak from experience. I "murdered" a brand new mobo by slipping with a screwdriver. There's no easy way of finding out without replacing ....
