I'm not sure what heatsink you are talking about. Changing the heatsink on a CPU does not affect the video, nor does adding a hard drive.
Now if you pulled out the old hard drive and replaced it with a hard drive on which XP Pro was installed, you need display drivers--but when you first start up the computer, display drives are generic and you can see the BIOS screen and you can also start Windows in safe mode.
If you have no video at all, even on startup, then you do, indeed have a problem. It could be with the monitor or it could be because you replaced the heat sink and did not seat the new one correctly or use heat sink compound. If this is the case, you probably just fried your
CPU and will have to replace it.

Testimonial: "Kind of figured it was more that just drivers, used compound and double checked placement of cpu, was hoping for an easy fix, sounds like it's pooched"

Newer system with higher performance specifications


To maximize the best performance for your model, you would need

- Highest CPU 1.80GHz
- Maximum memory amount installed (2 x 512MB PC2700 DDR)
- Virtual Memory / Paging File size set correctly
- Use 1GB Flash Memory Drive as additional Virtual Memory
- Hard Disk with highest RPM (7200)
- Minimum programs in startup items
- Install FreeRAM XP Pro 1.52
- Windows XP Professional SP3
- Low resource using Antivirus (Norton 360 v3.5)
- Use Laptop Cooling Pad to keep components cool

At some point, if you want to have a fast performing machine to run newer operating systems, and a higher video card size for media and games, ultimately you should invest in a newer system, then adding harder to locate more pricey components to an older machine.

Adding new hardware to a desktop can be somewhat straightforward for a non-tech. Adding these same componenets to a laptop, is no so easy for the untrained, and can cause damage to other components, not to mention labour costs can get to be quite high.

I hope this helps.

I am a Nvidia man myself but have had this same problem with other peoples systems. Make sure you have the correct version of Microsoft .net Framework installed on your system before installing the video driver. Check ATI driver download page for .net Framework requirements for this paticular driver package.

No sound on MOBO


You didnt say what operating system you are using. If you are using XP you may need to update xp then reinstall. DirectX 9 has to be installed before most of the newer sound drivers will even try to install. If your copy is XP or XP sp1 you probably just need to udate dx9

Abit motherboard problem/HD


Hi coonster,
Actually you can do more. If you haven't updated windows please do so! Once windows SP2 has been fully updated & running correctly use windows disk management utility.
To load windows utility click the start button & type diskmgmt.msc in the run windows, click ok.
Windows may have added another drive letter to your drive because of the 137GB block. Use disk management to delete any added drive letter. Window disk management can add the additional space to your C: drive. If windows still gives you a hard time I suggest you download partition magic 8.0 or 8.1 from this site. (Its free). Install partition magic & use it to regain all your of the drives data space.
