Hello everybody I recently had a problem with my computer it started to make constant beep sounds so I opened the case up and found out the CPU cooler hook was cracked so I went to Tiger Direct to get a new CPU cooler
. So I installed the cooler with Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound
then I go to boot the computer it makes the beeping noise again and there is no display on my new LCD. So I decide to reset the CMOS then I reboot there is still no display but the beeping stops. But after about 20secs. The computer resets itself again. I also got a Abit IP35 Pro
which has POST
and the computer resets on C1 so I checked the dictionary of POST and it said the following, "Detect memory Auto-detection of DRAM size, type and ECC & Auto-detection of L2 cache (socket 7 or below)"
I'm not a 100% sure but could it be that the thermal compound is still new and thats why it doesn't work and I've also had problems with this RAM before
I had to throw a stick away. Thank You.
Here are my computer specs.
