I forgot to turn my fan back up to high speed when I went to work. (I turn it down at night as I have my <a style='text-decoration: none; border-bottom: 3px double;' href="http://www.serverlog...r conditioning" onmouseover="window.status='air conditioning'; return true;" onmouseout="window.status=''; return true;">air conditioning</a> on in my room and it's cold as an ice cube. My mom IMS me at work asking why my computer has been violently beeping for -15 minutes- *sigh* I tell her to shut it off, as that means it's overheating.
Come home, plug it back in, temp is normal, computer boots up fine etc etc. I noticed that it started up at 266mhz instead of the usual 333mhz so I fiddle in the BIOS, turn it up to turbo. Restart.. computer won't POST. Motherboard light comes on, CD-ROM opens and shuts, harddrive spins, but there is no "beep" of any sort and the monitor light flashes with no dislpay on screen.
Is it possible my CPU is fried? If this had happened before I had already had it on I would believe that, but I'm curious because I had it running for about 10 minutes at a good temperature and it was fine.
I took the computer apart, checked connections, checked mounting on the CPU, popped the battery for a few minutes (I'm about to do it again and let it sit for more than like, 5 minutes, maybe that's the problem.) How frustrating.
Any other ideas before I drop $100 on a new processor?
EDIT: I read "gerryf"'s guide saying what to try if it did not post and nothing has helped.
