I clicked the start up repair and it told me start up repair could not detect a problem but when I click the view diagnostics and repair details it tells me number of repair attempts 2 and number of root causes 1.

Sorry late reply mate now when you say there was no paste just how did you find that out?? Now before you put more on you should have cleaned the old stuff off first it is really important to do that because any old stuff left behind just might not let the new stuff do what it is supposed to do.
The compound you used just what was it?? We need to know because we do not want you wrecking the machine for the few minutes it takes to do the compound properly.

When you said the cpu might be overheating I opened the computer to look at the paste, I cleaned the old stuff off and and put more on the pack says its called titan but it had been used before about a few months ago.

Hmm ok well I wished I had known that before you did it as I don't know that brand and personally I use only these
Arctic Silver Incorporated - ArctiClean & Arctic Silver Incorporated - Arctic Silver 5

simply because cleaning and surface preparation is all important to me and the compound though reasonably expensive contains an amount of elemental silver which has the greatest thermal co-efficient rating of all the metals.
My own personal method is to clean and prepare the two surfaces and then apply a very thin layer of compound to each surface with a finger inside a vinyl glove. I then put a rice grain sized piece of compound in the centre of the CPU and reapply the cooler device. The compound then "bleeds out" across the surfaces as the CPU heats up. This way I know all of the surface of the CPU is in "contact" with thew cooling device plate.

You will find many have very different ways of doing this but however you do it it is important NOT to apply too much compound that it squeezes out from under the cooling device onto the CPU socket and board.

Anyhow what are the temps now that it has had time to settle in?

The temps are the same in the BIOS.

Yep well the BIOS can be quite varied from time to time. Now as it will not go into safe mode we have a problem.

Now if you shut the machine down "illegally" and reboot it does it come up with a black screen with white text on it saying Windows was not shut down properly and give you a few options like Start Windows normally??

Plus do you have the installation media ie the Microsoft DVD?? If not then we can get an ISO and make a disk to install/repair Windows from - but is there the black screen as mentioned above?

There are other things to test out but we would really like those dumps files if possible.

It gives me four options start safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command and start Windows normally
