COMPUTER WONT START :C

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey overclockers. So i was looking to upgrade to a full loop from my h100 and solg my h100. Today, as soon as I took off the h100 and replaced it with stock intel i5 heatsink(i have i5 2500k 3.3ghz). I cleaned off the old thermal paste and put AS5 in place of it. However now when I turn on my computer it wont go past post! Everything is plugged in, and when I click the power button the fans, hdds, and everything turns on. This is where I get stuck. It just sits on the bios screen, with no post beeps. I took off the hs and found a bit of thermal paste on the mobo, so using isopropyl alcohol I cleaned it off. However that didn't fix the problem either. Now my question is, is there anything I can do to get it working? My keyboard wont load so I cant use any of the bios settings! My motherboard is a gigabyte z68 btw
tl;dr -
changed hsf from h100 to stock and it wont go through post
reset cmos
reseated cpu
cleared stray latent
still wont even go through POST

clear the CMOS, make sure the pressure is sufficient on the CPU. Try reseating the CPU. Maybe you shocked somthing? If you can see the BIOS it should be okay.

Have you tried resetting the CMOS?

This might also be an example of what I call "Stray latent charge." Simply disconnect your computer from the wall, wait some thirty minutes, and then try again. For whatever reason, that process seems to fix almost 90% of my weird boot-up issues.

You might need to reseat the CPU and make sure no pins were damaged or bent switching the cooler. Just curious why we're you messing with it to put a stock cooler on it?

I reseated the cpu, and everything is the same. I put the stock hsf on it so I could use it while I wait for my custom loop parts to arrive

Try unplugging everything from the computer (i.e. USB stuff and power) and then remove the CMOS battery and leave it for a few hours. Then, reinsert the CMOS battery, and plug in only your monitor and power. Try bootup then.

ill do that while im off at work for 4hrs, hopefully itll work. I don't get what coulve done this! mad.gif i removed the h100, and touched the mobo but my other hand was touching my case on a(what feels like) metal part. So the shock couldn't have done it. What else is there that could've caused this??

A small shock, too small to be felt my us humans, at the wrong place at the wrong time can cause devastating effects on hardware. I'm not saying that this is necessarily the case here (especially since the computer boots up), but it is a possibility.

Since your computer reaches the BIOS splash screen, I'm inclined to say that the problem is one of software rather than hardware. This last test should confirm and/or rule that out.
