Last response: in Motherboards

My motherboard is the asrock h61m-dgs. I performed an external build with the ram, cpu, and gpu installed and attached to a monitor. Regardless if I attach the monitor to the motherboard or the gpu, when I start the computer I get 4 post beeps and no display.

Gpu is a radeon hd 7750, doesnt require external power.

The Bios guide says System Timer failure for 4 beeps but I don't know what that means or how to fix it.

Does the onboard work if you remove the 7750?

Nope, same four beeps and no display.

Alright so I need to set out my processor and other parts for now, will the thermal paste dry out if it's exposed to the air? Is there any specific way I should be protecting the parts while waiting for an RMA?

So if I put it back in the case will I still have to buy thermal paste?

Every time you take the cooler of you run a risk if you do not have new paste on reassembly.

Alright thanks for all the help, but one last thing, will q-tips work fine for removing dried thermal paste?

I usually use lint free cloth and rubbing alcohol I guess q-tips will work as well just as long it is lint free when reassembly.
