Hey guys just seeking some help about my current PC issue
Few days ago pulled out my cpu fan to clean it, and upon placing back in, my pc does not fully start up, and takes a few tries to get past POST
It constantly turns on and off whenever I power it up and after a few tries does boot up and run but freezes when its loading windows and freezes after awhile after it fully boots.
I replaced my original gfx card (HD6950) as that was giving no signal whenever it fully booted as i thought that may be the problem with a GTX660 and I now get a signal but still freezes and takes multiple tries to boot.
Tried running with 1 stick of ram, and the PC with no case
4GB g skill ripjaws
Corsair tx650 psu
Gigabyte GA Z68P DS3 mobo
You may need to put some new thermal paste on your cpu. It may have faded after you cleaned your chip and the cpu may be heating up to much. There is a certain temp on cpu's which when it reaches that temp it automatically shuts down your system.
Tried a different psu and still the same result, this is real annoying
So if its not psu or cpu, then it is either your motherboard, ram or hard drive!!!!! Trail an error! I hope you have a spare hdd, ram or motherboard hanging around so you can try and see if the problem is with one of them. Im sorry to hear your still having problems. Its frustrating isnt it.
