OK usually i'd have a crack at this myself, but im in australia and my old man is in england.... so its not possible.

im after some instructions for how to re seat a cpu for a shuttle x micro desktop, don't really know much more about the spec, except for the fact it may have a thermal plate that draws heat to a fan, to save space.

Also some instructions for how to re seat the ram, would be also.

Me old man is getting a cpu error on startup,

doesn't sound very healthy, but want to try everything before i start looking at a barebone system.

please reply to the post

Hi :thumbsup:.

What is the specific error message or messages?

Reseating memory is just removing it (properly) and then putting it back in (properly).

Reseating a CPU is a bit more difficult, since it involves removal of the heatsink/fan, removal of thermal compound, and could result in bent CPU pins (which might be a problem).



But...your system is not necessarily configured like a normal desktop, so I would suggest contacting the support personnel at Shuttle re your situation...before attempting to reseat anything.

except for the fact it may have a thermal plate that draws heat to a fan, to save space.

It does, and you still need to use thermal compound between the CPU and the tube
The memory should have clips at the end you need to release to remove the modules.
Be extra careful about knocking things loose. You don't have a whole lot of room to play with
