odd boot problem - Page 2

post #11 of 14
i had a similar problem like this with my old computer after someone kicked it.

i tore apart my computer many times trying to get this thing to start...

the problem was that the CPU heatsink sat too tightly on the mobo and was not allowing it to start. the problem would replicate itself after i transported the computer from one place to another.

every time i tried to boot, the gpu fan would kick on full blast, and that was a dead giveaway that there was a problem.
