Intel i7 920 trouble

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
EDIT: The computer turns on, but no post on the monitor.
Hey guys,

It's been a long time, I recently switched to AMD and have been a little bit out of the Intel scene. About 1 1/2 years ago I built my friend and PC which was a Intel i7 920, Asus P6T Deluxe, AMD 5770, 850 Watt Psu, and OCZ 6GBs of Ram. About 6 months ago, my friends cousin had grape juice on top of the computer (I don't understand why) and was playing Starcraft 2. He "accidently" hit the computer with his foot and caused the grape juice to go inside the top exhaust vent. My friend was pissed, but he asked for my help to see how to fix the problem. I helped him send back his motherboard because right away I could tell the problem was with the motherboard because the entire PCi-E ports has purple stickyness. So he got back the motherboard installed all the components himself, an got it back up and running. About 2 weeks later, he told me that the computer was running very slow on startup and and would take 2 min to get to windows. Eventually nothing even showed up on the screen. My first idea was that it might be the video card because the juice could have spilled inside of the card. I tested it on my own machine, and it worked fine. Do you guys have any suggestions on anything else I could try that is low cost, I fear that we may have to buy some new parts.

Thanks, I know its a long read so I will bold the important parts.

One last thing, my friend is using the stock intel fan and apparently wiped off the thermal paste when he took it apart and back together. Could the Intel processor be fried or burned because of lack of efficient heat dissapation.

OK will try the Windows 7 fresh install.

I also have some artic silver for the thermal compound, that probably should reduce temps dramatically even with a stock fan.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that, when you turn on the computer the power is runs through the machine, but there is no post splash screen. The monitor remains blank.

That just could be the monitor. I have read that when using HDMI on certain models.
