So that's what happened, had this graphic card on my hp Pavillion for years now. Messed around with some stuff in order to get it a proper cleaning, got the processor out and all, then I started it, worked for like an hour or so, until I had to reboot it. When I did that, appeared some pink green etc stripes at the bottom of the monitor then shut down, as it should. When I started to turn it on, nothing appears on the monitor, yet the mouses light is on, no beep, anything, what could it be? When I took the processor out I didn't take the thermic pasta or what you call it off, but I didn't add any either. The pc was off like for 4yrs now

1) CPUs, and other solid state electronics and Integrated circuits can suffer permanent damage from an electrostatic discharge.


2) The thermal grease under a removed CPU should always be replaced. Heat is also a deadly enemy of electronics. (When they get too hot, they melt).
