Windows 7: Computer not straing up

Does your motherboard have a speaker to give you beeps. Have you heard beeps before. I have read about some motherboards having a place to add a little speaker.

Yes mate it has one of those little black things that plug into the board but you have given me a thought - maybe the speaker is shot - one lives in hope. Yep I have had the beeps before and they are really quite loud.

Have got the machine up and running. Did a reseat of the CPU after gently cleaning the LGA and also found the TX4 was not sitting exactly over the CPU - a strange clamp down affair a bit like the old AMD stuff - don't really like it at all as seated correectly does not sit down that firmly. .

Now I find the reg entries are corrupted quite a bit so whatever caused that initial crash before the cooler dropped it's bundle has earnt mea no genuine message which has now gone away but I am still going to do a celan install I think.

How much thermal paste did you initially put on there?

Just thin smear on each surface plus a grain of rice on the heatsink. I usually do this with a piece of old credit card it looks a lot in the pic as I have just taken the cooler off the reinstall I thinned out the heatsink one this time. The contamination I really don't think came from over doing it more that I may have just touched the LGA edge with my fingers it was only a couple of dots that looked like they were dirty they might not have been as my eyesight i snow getting pretty poor.

I suspect that cooler unit not being directly over the heatsink had more to play in it. The fixing I don't like at all it has too much "slop" in it when positioning over the heatsink. Am awaiting the replacement Intel LC at the moment but after the last episode am now a bit loathe to fit it.

Any suggestions of a different brand??

By the way I found a possible solution from another forum's member re how the circulation might be in the rad and that is the end where the in / out tubes are connected has a baffle in the centre of the tank which forces the coolant up one side of the core (or down whichever way you prefer) to the opposite tank where it descends through the other half core. This to me makes perfect sense if it is true and looking at the Alphacool set up might just be the answer.
