here is the issue, lately the computer has been on the fritz, freezing and being slow so i decided to get some arctic silver to make it a little faster, its only a few bucks so i figured it wouldnt hurt. anywho here is what went wrong, before applying the coolant it was actually running pretty smoothly, just turned it on to check it out. after i applied it i got post codes of long beeps with short pauses inbetween i.e. beeeeeeeeeep......... beeeeeeeeeeeep......beeeeeeep... etc. Im fairly savy with computers for an amateur so i thought this had to do with the ram, so i completely removed it.. the same thing, tried just one of each the ticks same thing, tried a different stick same thing. I'm entirely confused, what does this mean, i tried also 4 different psu's granted 1 i know is fried the others have been put under alot of stress over the years. Some help?

Thanks a ton
