Upgrading my current PC (please help)

I'm not sure what you mean about the heatsink and fan screwhole problem. They should be push pins you push down in there and they sort of snap in. Unless intel changed their design for the 775 socket. ???
Here is a video of installing a processor and heatsink/fan setup. It's not the greatest, but it's the best I can find lately
Also, the box should have come with instructions for installation, have you looked at them?

According to the link you have me, the Cooler Master heatsink you have supports cooling Core 2 Duo's which is pretty close to Quad Core's. Do you have any thermal paste to reapply to the new processor? You may want to try installing that instead and see how the temperatures are.
So to recap:
1. Clear the CMOS/BIOS by removing the battery like mentioned before
2. Install the Cooler Master heatsink and fan
3. Once windows boots, check temperatures.
Install PC Wizard (lets check temps):
- Click PC Wizard in my signature
- Click PC Wizard 2010.1.93 on the top left
- Save the file to your Desktop
- Double Click the setup file
- Follow installation instructions
- Once installed, open PC Wizard up
- Click "Tools"
- Select "Options"
- On the "View" tab, tick "sensors in real time"
- On the "Monitoring" tab, tick "force fan detection"
- Click OK
- Click the icon
- Click the refresh icon
Lets double up to be sure: Let Coretemp run in the background during some good game play, then post the info since it keeps the highest temperatures reached.
- Download CoreTemp
- Select whichever your OS is, 32bit or 64bit (if you don't know, select 32)
- Open with Windows Explorer
- Click Extract Files (save to a location you can remember)
- Double Click
- Post ALL information or post a screenshot

Only thing is I do not have thermal paste...I know there was still some on the Cooler master fan but I am suppose to scrape that off right?
Otherwise would Bestbuy or Radioshack have it?
You need a tip jar sir! Because you do deserve it!

How to apply thermal paste... Very thin and even, don't need to use a whole lot.

So with my new cpu in I removed the battery for 5 mins then put back in and turned on rig. It's still doing the same thing... nothing comes up on screen(monitor in standby) all fans including my video card turn on as well as lights for CD/DVD drives turn on for a bit then it reboots and repeats...
I also tried putting in my old video card and got the same results...

Immediately after that when you try to power the computer on, can you get to the BIOS? Just see if you can get to the BIOS first. Post back if you can, I'll give further instructions.

Can you describe what it is doing in better detail?
Posted 06 March 2010 - 01:42 PM
I power on my computer all fans start spining, CD Drives blink then after about 5-10 seconds they stop. And it keeps repeating this cycle until I hit the power switch on the back on the case...

If it's the same problem, we can try some things, if it boots with the old processor, you may have been sent a bad processor. You can use the Intel Stock Heatsink with the old processor, no worries there.
Let me know.
