Skotock, My guess is that you damaged your processor or some thermal grease (paste-like material that physically bonds your heatsink to your processor) is shorting something. Unplug your power cord, remove the heatsink and processor. Check the processor for surface cracks and bent pins. Make sure NONE of the thermal grease has oozed over the edge of the processor onto either the processor pins or the motherboard itself. This material is both thermally and electrically conductive and can cause shorts. If you don?t find anything let us know and provide us with as much details about exactly what you did and how so that we can continue to troubleshoot. If this did solve your problem please let us know and don?t forget to rate this posting.
