CPU Problems (won't start up)
After reviewing the stickies, searching through the forums, and trying to fix my own computer, I have had no luck.
The computer will start up, beep (high, then low) a few times, and then immediately shut off. The motherboard will still show the temp. I tried replacing the fan with one from Newegg, but that didn't do anything (and yes I applied Arctic Silver 5). The newer fan, however, doesn't point to the side of the case, but rather to the front or back of it. Is this a problem? Also, a tinier fan attached to the mobo will not run as well.
I have tried resetting the CMOS, but that didn't do anything either. Is this an overheating issue or a different CPU problem? Also, I'm not sure how tightly the heatsink is restin against the motherboard.
