I have a problem with my pc here, hope you guys can help me out.
Yesterday, I have changed my standard cooler for an after market cooler. My pc keeps rebooting now after the bios screen.
These are the things I already have tried:
- I have resetted the cmos.
- I have also tried to start the pc with only 1 ram and the cpu. It was still rebooting after the bios screen.
- I have also pulled all of the cables out of the motherboard and put them in again.
Before that, I dropped my cpu on my wooden floor with a height of 50 cm or so by accident, while trying to clean the remaining thermal paste on the cpu. I don't know if that is the case of my problem? The cpu itself looks like it is fine.
os: windows 7 ultimate 32bits
motherboard: sus p5qpl-am
Psu: stock psu 300 watt
cpu: intel celeron e3300, 2.5 ghz
Cpu cooler: cooler master hyper 212 plus
Ram: 2x, Buffalo 1gb, pc2-6400
When I enter the bios and when I look at system information it shows my processor. Can I qssume that my processor is working then? I assume thatThe mobo is working too, otherwise I could not enter the bios, am I right?
I have checked the connections of the hdd and they are connected well.
For booting the pc from a windows dvd: at first the CD drive was not connected, so I needed to connect the dvd drive and I had also changed the boot priority number one to CD ROM and number. When starting the system, this shows up after the bios screen: 'Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key.'
The interesting thing is that when I put the hard drive on priority 1, it shows the same message on the screen. I have also tried to start it, without the hard drive was connected and that it showed the same message again.
