I just brought a new motherboard and everything was fine. After 5 minutes it shut down due to the fan not being properly connected. The CPU got hot so the computer auto shutdown, now every time i turn on the computer i get a red light and two flash's which means CPU thermal shutdown, due to it being hot. Now every time i turn on the computer i can't get it to start because of this red light message, do i have to reset the CMOS or something i don't believe my i7 CPU is dead though for it does the same thing to my i5 CPU, what do you think is the next step? I mean in terms of stopping the repeated CPU message so i can load the BIOS.

Check your motherboard manual. Some motherboards have a jumper that can be moved to reset the CMOS to factory defaults.

If the CPU is not properly cooled, it can literally start melting internally within a second or two. And if you then keep trying to force it to run, it can actually burst into flames. That's why motherboards are designed to power down, so they don't set your house on fire.
