Computer hates me

Sunday, 09 January 2011
So yesterday I decided to go get a new heat sink for my computer but ended up just buying a new fan for it. When i saw that it was only a 3 prong, my old one is a 4 pronged one, I asked the guy if it would work with my computer and he said it would. So after i got home I hooked up the new fan to my heat sink and nothing. The damn thing won't work and would cause my computer to just beep twice then repat said beeping after about 15-20 sec. So I put the old one back on and same thing still happened. Well today I took my heat sink off and took a look at my CPU chip and tried to clean what little thermal grease on the seat there was to make sure nothign was where it shouldn't be. Soooooo I put it back in and hooked up my heatsink, turned on my computer only to get a nose full of burning electrical smell. I think my computer may be shot but I am gonna have a friend take a look at it and see if he can fix it and if not, I am gonna need to see how much a motherboard, heatsink/CPU, box and power supply are gonna cost me cause Chal is gonna have to build a computer.

So if you don't see me on at all even for like 3 mins in the next couple of months its because I am trying to build a computer. Have fun all.
