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??
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.
