I took my 212 cooler off . took the cpu out of the socket but ran out of time so popped it back in, arrow on bottom left. everything matched up. when i lowered the lever it made a quiet crackling noise but it dd this the first time 2 months ago. i screw in the cooler and boot up . Now my power button spring broke on the case so a pushed it a few times. Got bios corrupted. it did some bios reset thing, and booted up windows, after a minute started to lag and froze. I had to hard reboot it. same thing happened except instantly. then i couldnt even get to the bios. Press the reset bios option on the mb. Booted into bios heck temp, was at like 37c (3d bios so it loads a bit.on my cpu, ) got into safe mode for a minute, decided to reboot, got frozen on windows welcome screen.. so i decided to take off the cooler, however one of the 4 scews is stuck in the bolt and wont unscrew, it twists the bolt. so i took off the cooler, the bracket is still on. taking it to the shop tomorrow, whats your guys thoughts on whats going on, someone said if you take the coller off you need to reapply the tim?.

you might have not lined up cpu right when you placed in back in the socket and broke the little groves that go on each side of the cpu at the top. usually if that happens cpu is still fine but it might not be seating properly in the socket now. In this picture I circled the part on the cpu that needs to fit in those groves on the mobo I am talking about see if you snapped pieces of those off.

Those groves are fine on the chip aswell as the motherboard. I made sure they fit. Like i said it make the same noise when i installed it the first time. Theres a few threads where people hear that noise and its fine. il post the link to the thread. also wouldnt the computer not boot then? i can get into windows before it freezes

That's so unsettling. It's supposed to do that. I still can't get used to it.

You need to use the tool they gave you with the hyper 212 to hold the nut behind your motherboard, holding that bolt in. It got loose, that's why the screw won't unscrew and the bolt just twists. You didn't tighten the nut on the back enough.

However you should never really tighten anything all the way when building a computer, in my opinion. All you gotta do is use the hyper 212 tool or a wrench, and hold the nut still as you unscrew that screw out.

Ideally you are supposed to reapply tim anytim you take off the cooler (clean it off, put new paste back on) but it's not necessary. Worst case scenario your temps are a few degrees higher on load. If you are in the situation you are now where you are freaking out about something being broken, then I wouldn't worry about reapplying tim.

Re-using TIM would just be slightly higher temps, and in my experience it doesn't even do that (i mean sometimes...). It will NOT cause an issue like not being able to boot up, like you are having.

Don't take your system to the shop. All they are going to do is check it out and look online just like you could do at home. If you have a broken system, it's broken. They are not electrical engineers so there is nothing they can possibly do to fix it if it's truly broken.

Are you sure you plugged back in all the cables? Is your fan hooked back in? Your 4 pin CPU power pin back in? It makes no sense that your system stops working because you remove and put back on the cooler. There is very clearly something very stupid happening here.
