Question about Compaq Keyboard
I cleaned the fan at the power supply and saw that the large heatsink in the middle of the motherboard was very dirt so I removed that and locked it down after placing the pins over the socket which I presume is the CPU which fits inside the heatsink and replaced it after cleaning. Turned on my computer which was running perfectly prior to this and noticed that now there is no display on the monitor and there is a noise coming from the dvd rom also when the pc is turned on. I checked the gold pins under the large heatsink and noticed several bent pins and tried to straighten them but one broke. I replaced the heatsink a couple of times until the power came back to the desktop but there is still no display on the monitor and the dvd rom tray will only open about half way. I obviously damaged the CPU. What can I do to fix it? I read on a site about replacing a pin with a longer cable wire and then cutting it to size to fit. Any ideas? I am a bit low in funds at the moment and I wonder would it be possible to either fix the cpu myself or send it off to be repaired or bring it to a repair shop? My laptop also has a frozen mouse from a dat error. I assume that the registry for the money has been wiped as it says in the reg editor that it has no value. Can I fix it without having to lose all of my files and reinstall Vista from backup discs? Thanks.

Hi, from your description it appears your power supply is ok. Remove your RAM chips, clean everything with a soft brush or a can of compressede air [from computer store] Reinstall the RAM making sure it is seated firmly. If this does not solve the problem, Are you using 1 or 2 RAM sticks? if 2 then remove them again and swap them around. stick one in dimm2 and stick 2 in dimm 1. If you only have one stick then beg or borrow another stick and try it. If all fails you may have developed a mobo problem. Regards mistyman

You need a new power switch. I am currently working on a S4020WM with the same problem. I cut one wire to the power switch, then used a paper clip to make a jumper to start the machine. It has run fine since then. The only trouble I am having is finding a replacement switch.

Is there more than one fan inside the computer? Did you double-check the connection from the fan to the motherboard? Sometimes a computer will shut down if it doesn't sense that the fan is turning on, to prevent the computer from overheating.
