Now Carter my 2 cents worth what do you mean by this
"I've read about trying to reseat cpu heatsink"
It is implying to me that you have uncapped the CPU - taken the top metal plate off the CPU and applied compound to the internal chip (much as you do with GPU chips) and redone the thermal compound under the lid of the CPU?? because one does not muck around like that and the compound is usually only applied to the cooler heatsink and the CPU "lid".

Also I read that the BIOS is telling you a new CPU has been installed means you actually took it our of it's socket and reinserted it.

I don't really want to post this kind of informations in a public forum. Is it really that needed. I have problems with bsod's, not Win activation.

What I've meant is reseat cpu's fan heatsink. I didn't remove the metal plate. I reapplied it ON the CPU's lid. And about reseating it, actually enough to remove the bios message was to move with the heatsink like by 1 milimeter or push it a little so the force acting on CPU is spread equally.
Yes I took it off, cleaned it of old paste inserted it in socket and applied new.

Carter, if you will go to BSOD Help and Support - Windows 7 Help Forums , you will see over 1000 pages of different threads, Every one of them posted the information requested. You saw fit to edit the PID of your operating system. There is nothing personally identifiable in that. It only identifies the type OS you are using. The only reason a person would see fit to edit that out is if he were running an illegal system, which is against forum rules. Therefore, before you receive any further help, we will need the unedited Windows Genuine and Activation Issue Posting Instructions. But, I think you know all of that.

Well that is why you are probably getting the BIOS message - taking the CPU out of the socket. The compound replacing unless you find a real mess from the previous application is best done leaving the CPU in the socket. Now personally I use the Arctic Sliver compound and the cleaning kit when I am doing this and you should never apply more force to the cooler than the manufacturers fixings apply themselves you risk damaging the CPU and the socket if not the board holding them.
The Arctic Silver stuff you can see here Arctic Silver Incorporated - Arctic Silver 5 & the cleaning component/s Arctic Silver Incorporated - ArctiClean at least I find they are the optimum way of cleaning the surfaces many other just wipe or use alcohol and it really is a personal choice.
You only need to apply a small amount of the compound and I use a vinyl glove and my finger to spread the compound real thin on both surfaces and then a small rice grain sized piece of compound on the CPU lid before the final replacement of the cooler. The heat of the CPU operating is enough to ensure the compound is evenly spread as it then it "runs" into those small microscopic imperfections on the CPU lid and the cooler surfaces making an almost perfectly close contact a possible.

BSOD on old laptop; recently changed thermal paste
Old Dell Inspiron 1545 was running temperatures above 60c causing the fan to be really loud so I decided to switch the thermal paste on the processor which brought the temperatures to 30c idle. All this was done correctly (all paste removed, pea sized MX-4 applied). Besides this, the only thing...

Thermal Paste
After reading some good reports on Shin Etsu thermal paste, I bought some, but am having a lot of problems with getting it to spread properly. It tends to clump together, and when forcing it out, it leaves such a thin covering that the lettering on the CPU is still plainly visible. I'm about to...

Used way too much thermal paste
This isn't that important, all it is is that I'm worried. It was my first time round putting thermal paste onto a cpu, and i sort of used an entire 3.5g syringe of arctic silver 5 underneath a zalman9700. Yes some did come over the sides, wiped it off, I'm guessing there is a layer inbetween...
