I installed a new cpu fan into a computer that has been giving me trouble for the past few months, every time I think that I have solved the problem, something new happens. So I installed a new fan and now my monitor cant get a signal, while installing the fan I removed the ram from the board and put it back after. The computer doesn't crash at all, or make any kind of beeping sound, so I doubt I installed the components incorrectly. Before I put in the new fan, the display would work fine, but when I tried to install XP, my computer would crash.
i am having a similer problem. i just upgraded from a 1.8 celeron to a 2.8 P4 and now my monitor w show anything. im not stupid and i know i didnt do anything wrong to frie the cpu or anything. so now when i put the old celeron back into place i get the same reaction. im guessing that i might have gotten too big of a cpu.. and it might have burned something.. i really dont know what to go on to now..
