Hey guys. Last weekend I built the rig that's in my signature and everything booted up fine. My CPU temps were a little high so I got a bolt-thru kit for my heatsink and pulled off my heatsink and put it back on with the kit. I then let it sit overnight and now today I put everything back together and went to boot, and nothing will come on my screen. I thought at first maybe I put the cards in the wrong order or something, so I tried switching them, then I tried with just 1, then the other, and tried each of them in both slots, all no luck. Just a black screen. A friend of mine suggested I try resetting the BIOS, so stupid me pops out the battery before realizing there's a CMOS reset button. Now when I turn it on, not only is there nothing on the screen, but it makes a terrible whining noise. Now my 750i FTW has a small LCD with beep codes on it and I'm getting the FF code, which according to my book, means it's booting. So someone please help me! Tell me I didn't fry my brand new computer!!!
