Question about EliteGroup P4VXAS (P4VXAS-R) Motherboard
On my motherboard, where the processors cooling fan/metal unit attaches to the board, there are two metal snap mecahnisms that secure the cooling unit, the snaps connect to a plastic part that is screwed to the board. On eo the plastic parts broke, where can I get new one/ other ways to fix?
As Eblackadder says, you probably need a new board, but since that's the case you can take the attitude that you have nothing to lose.
If it were me, I would look very carefully at the motherboard around the socket to see if you can drill some small holes without hitting a metal trace. You will really be gambling here because these boards have metal traces embedded inside the board that you may not be able to see.
Assuming you can find a few spots where you think drilling a small hole is possible you could then use zip ties to pull the heatsink assembly down tight to the processor. I would use very small zip ties. Since these are typically not very long, you can chain a number of them together.
Best of luck.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan
is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections needs its connections continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
