I was getting horrible performance on my CPU for awhile. I checked the temperatures, and the temp of the processor was at 97C! Immediately I turned off the computer and checked to see if the heatsink was in there OK. I thought that it was, but then again, i barely know what a heatsink is. I pushed it down and stuff to seat it properly if it wasnt already. Then, I turned the CPU on, and i wouldnt get a boot signal, no video or "beep" from the motherboard. Is my CPU broke?

You need to take it apart (cpu/heatsink/fan) and clean the thermal paste off there and reapply some Arrtic Silver. Pay close attention to instructions: Artic Silver Instructions


Then, when you put it back together, don't take it apart once it is seated and MAKE SURE you have the clamp down tight to secure that CPU/Heatsink/Fan.

Thanks. I took off the fan/heatsink, so now i need to reapply the grease in order for the cpu to boot? Also, can i just use toothpaste instead of the grease?

Edit: I can't clamp down on all four clamp thingys?? It only lets me clamp down on the two.

You cant use toothpaste!

And if you cant get all four down dont put to much pressure on them because you could break them on the cpu fan and if you break them on the board that would be worse.

Do not use Toothpaste. If you can't wait then I'd suggest you try a local computer shop to see if they have any. Also, make sure the fan is running when you power up.
