Re: Problem with my computer after clean up
You may need to reset the bios by finding terminal 'JBAT1' and put jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds, then back to pins 1-2.
Check the memory is seated correctly and graphics card if fitted.
Ensure you have'nt put too much thermal compound on the processor, it only requires a very thin application.
Rstart pc then set time and date in the bios setings and save ten exir for a restart.

When replacing a CPU. Make sure the new CPU is compatible with the device you are trying to upgrade. You are going to enter into the BIOS. Download this PDF manual to be aware on how to get into these settings. http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02642701.pdf
The physical part with replacing the CPU hardware. CAUTION!! DO NOT FORGET TO HAVE THERMAL COMPOUND BEFORE PLACING THE HEAT SINK ON THE CPU. IF YOU DO NOT APPLY THERMAL COMPOUND, THE CPU WILL OVER HEAT AND MAY CAUSE YOUR UPGRADED CPU TO BURN OUT.
The only thing that you did not mention was fresh conductive thermal grease compound, did you take the heat sink off the processor ic and remove the old thermal compound? if you have not done this you will need to complete the repairs and apply fresh conductive thermal compound this will dissipate up to 50% of the heat and should solve your problem. If this fails you need to make sure the processor cooling fan is running properly, or the processor ic may need to be changed because of thermal runner way.
If you have already wiped some thermal compound paste fro the processor then I reccommend you to wipe it completly from the heatsink of the cpu and the heatsink itself. The reason to this is that if you plan on purchasing another type of compound thermal paste in which have more conductivilty then you want to get the most out of it. Do not attempt to run your cpu without any thermal compound as you will damage the cpu from overheating.
hi gul,since the CPU is being reused, you must clean all of the thermal
compound off the CPU and reapply a new thermal interface compound. Apply a thermal grease or a thermal pad to the interface between the CPU and the heatsink you used. If possible ADD one cooler so that your heat will be reduce.
The CPU fan? (the one infront of the processor?)
Standard CPU fans have clips, most of them have instructions on motherboards handbook.
You may try putting some thermal compound @ the surface of the processor, the reason why your computer turns off after boot up is that it the processor overheats.
Thermal compound is cheap, another fan will cost you more (and of course buying a new fan will require you to also buy a thermal compound so you would have something to put after removing the old fan)
clean the cpu cooler slots and replace the thermal compound on the cpu ....make sure you clean off the old thermal compound .....only a thin layer of new thermal C will do all most see through ... hope this helps my friend
If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)
DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.
You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.
DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU
Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on
Here are some basic instructions Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.
If everything went to plan you should now be back in business
You can use a straight-edged razor to remove the CPU without actually hurting the CPU. I would also make sure to clean of any dried thermal compound residue to avoid making the CPU absorb more heat on your new board. Just make sure that when you do remove the heatsink from the CPU, you are extra careful to not bend any of the CPU pins.
And when you place the CPU in the new board, remeber to apply a thick coat of thermal compound to ensure that the CPU remains cool.
