Default Fatal Hardware Issue-HELP

i installed a new VGA fan, everything went good. put everything back in, and when i turned on the computer, the lights flashed, the fans started to turn, and then i shut off. I got the code 83-"save all in stack back to CMOS". and so i got a new mobo thinking it was fried, but then i got the same error. unfortunatly this mobo doesn't show the flash ## panel...but im getting the same symptoms..HELP i don't want to buy a new one

I think that you didn't install the fan properly.


Ricer: from the latin word Ricarius meaning to suck at everything you attempt.

If you got a new motherboard, then that is not the problem. I is probably the video card, because, you replaced the fan correct? Mabey the thermal paste went somewhere it shouldnt have...
