It all started when I reset my computer and all that would come up is my motherboard screen (not start up screen) and I could not get any command key to work. I thought it was the keyboard so I used a different one, same deal. I tried resetting the bios and still could not get anything. I then looked at my CPU to see if it was having any problems, I saw that it wasn't so I put it back in. After putting on the CPU cooler wrong the CPU started to heat up pretty quick (I have a temp monitor on the computer) Then I was getting no video at all. The CPU would climb to about 120 F and then just shut off. After looking online about how to fix the problems I unplugged the computer and held down the power button for 1 minute, took out the motherboard battery for 1 minute, and then put it in and started it up. Finally I had a start up menu, I raced to get into the bios to check things before the CPU temp climbed. But was too late, and the safety temp shut off turned off the computer. I then took off the CPU cooler and found that the thermal compound had built up causing it to leave space for air. So I wiped it off, pressed it back on and put the CPU cooler back on. I turned on the computer and had a stable CPU temp, only to find out that I now have NO video again. I have taken the RAM out, I took out the GPU, I reset the bios, I did everything I could think of doing and I still do not have any video. I also noticed the HHD light beside the power light is not blinking anymore like it use too. I had this problem earlier with my computer and had to send it back, I really don't want to wait that long again so if anyone could help I would be grateful redface.gif I did try overclocking and had problems with the motherboard so I ordered an Asus 990FX/GEN3 Sabertooth. I just don't know if it is a problems with the CPU,GPU,motherboard, etc.
