|OK computer will not boot ,, well kinda not. I changed some bios setting nothing major. the comp has been having prob for a while and I just got around to looking at it. I checked the hd using it on an external on my laptop worked fine. Last night it just stop making any start up noises. Two fans are running fine, hd is running. This morning I plugged HD back up and it booted. WOW. So I rebooted to change what had in bios and it froze. Now it is again not giving me any start up sounds. I be live it is the CPU, since I cant hear the CPU run. But I guess it could be the MB, however I would think that if that is the case then the HD would not run since it is plugged into the MB. All I get is a black screen. I am going to wait a few more hours and try it again. |
The fan and heat sink on CPU was removed and cleaned as best I could with a q-tip. it is filthty. I allowed it to run longer. it is still making a bad buzzing noise near the sata plugs on MB. and it now just shuts down. Anyway how can I better clean the heat sink fan slots? they still have gunk in them. I cleaned MB as besI could w/out messing anything up. I pulled up one clip on processor but couldnt fiqure out how to get it out, I thought they had 2 clips to lift up then it should come off. this didnt look that way.
Now I think its the heat sink fan ontop of CPU that is dirty. how can i clean it. Then I will try diagnosing the buzzing sound.

I know Intel have life time warrenties on their CPUs do AMDs have lifetime warrenties?
