Windows 7: Pc wont boot unless i try to re-insert the cpu fan

Hi again team,

i just replaced my old heatsink fan with another, added a small amount of silver paste and it is working well. So far PC boot went smoothly, however after awhile i encountered a BSOD. kinda weird it happened after replacing the fan and so i thought it must be just a coincident. But may you guys check what caused it?
I just want to be sure pc is running fine without any more problem. Thank you

Are you monitoring temps in the System tray with a program like Core Temp?

Check your logs to google errors at the time of crash, check the other System Resources using Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

If you have completed the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums then you can post the results up in our Blue Screen forum for expert analysis.

I still think you should test the RAM.

What is the exact ritual you're performing when removing the fan and reseating it?
I can only imagine (and hope!) that you're disconnecting the PC from the wall?
that might be a factor.

It sounds like a memory / PSU issue to me, rather then anything else at the moment.

Did you try testing the RAM?
Download HWinfo (select the appropriate version 32bit (x86) / or 64bit)
and post a screenshot of the sensors window.
