I hope that you can help me on this
I have tried to fix my (ageing, 6yr old) laptop and it was slow and load. Easy clean the fans out and format.
Well I thought I would back up tackle the loudness first as if I broke it (current condition) then at least I have the data.
Now I took it apart found the fan assembly undid the screws and it seemed pretty stiff and managed to pull it out. Then to my horror I realised that I had just pulled out the processor as well :S
Now when I try to boot it, after cleaning and putting it back together, It will not show anything on the screen.
It will spin up the HD, CD drive but that's about it. They stop spinning and then the system just sits there.
My one thing left to try was to change the cmos battery as it may help get to the bios. As is it is a brick
So any other ideas or if its worth to try changing the cmos to get it working. The cmos i worked out is on the bottom of the motherboard, great fun :D
ps sorry if this is in the wrong place
