i turn my computer on it goes through bios then windows comes up and computer shuts off. my cpu fan was making noise and i had an extra one so i replaced it, the old fan came out hard because the heat tranfer pad between the cpu and the heatsink hardend like glue. did i damage the cpu or the socket??? what would make my computer shut off when windows comes on??

The CPU overheating would make the computer shut off.
Did you use new heat tranfer paste when you reinstalled the heat sink?

Did you use a fan made for your CPU?

i found the problem the new fan wasn't working right. i put the old fan in and it works perfect know. the new fans the right fan and i used thermal gel too. i think the new fan's sensor wasn't working right telling the computer to shutdown.
