Hey guys long time no see.
I'm in a bit of a jam right now with one of my pcs.
I've had this PC for a long time (not the one I'm on now but the one I'm having problems with).
And I decided to use some new thermal paste on it because I've had it for about... 4 or more years. I cleaned the CPU with some rubbing alcohol and then dried it, and then applied a small amount of Artic Silver.
I then reconnected the fan, and the clamps. Then I plugged it in to my outlet and tried to turn it on.
The Fan spun once, and then the PC turned off. I've tried many other things. Moving around the cpu (triangle to triangle right?) clamping it down ext, ext.
When I do the Triangle to Triangle. The Light turns green, but the fans don't spin and nothing turns on!!!!
Then I tried putting an older CPU fan in it.... still a no go. I've also tried another Power Supply.
The PC is a D865PERL with a Pentium 4 on it.
Can any one help. This is REALLY REALLY P:a:aSING ME OFF!!!
