When you say "it" was 100+ degrees are you talking celsius? And was that in regard to the CPU? Next question would be how long did you run the CPU with no fan, It sounds like possibly quite some time. It doesn't sound real promising as far as your CPU goes IMO.
Okay, last night im playing some poker and all of a sudden pow. My computer shut it self down. I Booted it back up and it was 100+ degrees, but I had no problems the rest of the night. Today after my computer had been up and running for about 2-3 hours it happens again. This time it wont turn back on. I got all the dust out of it because it was really dirty when i opened the case and then unpluged power from both harddives and both cd drives and tried to boot. Still nothing. I then take out my power supply and open it up to see if maybe something blew out in it but i dont see anything wrong. Next i got my old power supply and hooked it up, but i get no response. One thing i noticed was for some stupid reason i didnt have my CPU fan connected rather i had my extra fan connected (dont ask me why). What do you think my problem is? Did my CPU blow out? or should i try somehthing else to get her back up? thanks, any help is appreciated.
okay the strangest thing happend. After work i went and bought myself a new case. Spend practically the entire cardinal game transfering all of my hardware into my new case which has 2 fans built into it. I was curious to see if my work would pay off and it was looking as if it would. I turned it on the first time and all the lights came on and even the motherboard light up. It sounded like it was booting up but i wasnt done with everything so i turned it off. I had the LED things mixed up so switched the + and - and turned it back on. It worked again. Then i asked someone to come look at all the lights and fans and ect and when i went to turn it on a 3rd time the motherboard wouldnt work. All the fans still light up and spin but nothing from the motherboard. I am stumped. I think im gonna call it day for now and try to figure this out tommorow. GRRRRRRR
