- Windows was installed on this HD previous to the MOBO/CPU/RAM/PSU changes. Should I reset the CMOS, boot from CD, format, and reinstall Windows?
Biostar M7NCD (onboard audio / ethernet, socket A)
AMD Sempron 2600+ (socket A, heatsink / fan)
Kingston 256MB ValuRam (PC 2700 / DDR 333)
Samsung 80GB HD
The video card was donated, some ATi Radeon of a sort, 128MB. I know the problem isn't the video card, I replaced it with an nVidia Vanta (RIVA / TNT2, 32MB) and the problem was not resolved.
On a semi-related note, the Sempron 2600+ did not come with any thermal paste. It had what I can only describe as a 'thermal sticker' - will this suffice or do you reccomend that I apply some form of paste (Arctic Silver?), and how to go about doing so.
