I've just installed a new Zalman 9500 heat sink. Got everything back in place and hooked up. Went to power up my pc and it won't post. Fans are all running, power is good and the hard drive light is on but no post. Please help. Called my pc tech support but they said they couldn't help because of the heat sink. It's not their install.
