Is the HDD spinning up when you turn the computer on? Check the BIOS and make sure it reconizes everything. What were you using to clean the machine? If you have the manual for your motherboard, you may want to check the jumpers.

the bios only reconizes the processor and the RAMS then stops there
after tryign many time it succed to load but when it reaches the (boot from cd step) it stops there

Make sure the ribbon cable did not get dislodged from the motherboard or the hard drive. Check the power cable on the hard drive also. Did you have the fan off the cpu?

Hi,

Slow down a bit here and get some of the questions answered that you have been asked. Here are some we need to know:

> Are all the fans still spinning (double check the CPU fan)?

>Did you take the cpu fan clear off or just blow it out with air..how did you clean it?

>Have you checked all the wires like the 12 volt molex that goes to the MB?

>What do you mean by changed the hard drive?

> What happens exactly when it shuts down?

> If you just changed the boot order for hard drives, did you put it back like when it worked?

> Did you at any time, take the clamp loose that holds the heatsink fan to the heatsink and MB?

Post back and then maybe someone can help you if they know the answers to these inquiries.

Note: Please be careful about the language that I had to edit.

Addendum: dai posted before I did (types too fast for me) and I suggest you try his suggestions first and then get into the questions and answers.
