PC was ok until I opened it up to install something!
Posted on 2003-11-04
I received a new Temp control for my Thermaltake Case and so I opened it all up and installed the new Temp Controller.
This involved taking the HSF off and taking the CPU out so I could put a new Temp Probe underneath the CPU. I put it all back together again making sure the probe wires run in between the CPU pins etc...
When I fired it up, there was no signal to the monitor. The computer didn't sound normal when starting up either. There was no hard drive sounds etc..
Anyway, I checked the monitor and wires and pins and sockets and I know its not the monitor coz I tried two different ones.
So I suspected something wrong with my graphics card. But because the computer isn't making any noises, it's hard to blame the Graphics Card. I took the HSF and CPU off again and put it back together another 2 times but there is still no signal to the monitor and no hard drive sounds. I checked all the connections and everything else I could think off.
I have an Intel 3.0 Ghz CPU 800 FSB and Intel HSF.
So at the moment, I have a dead duck and don't know what it could be.
Any ideas or suggestions?
