Hi. I'm new here, Great forum! I just yesterday finished building computer and started, worked. I managed to install windows however, soon later adding audio cable, motherboard failed, somekind of electric sound was and pc shut down. The computer starts now but there is no display, no beeps, all fans work and lights but nothing else. I am sending motherboard back for replacement after following all asus tests on their website. A8N SLI mobo. Also tried reseting CMOS- nothing. I have question, how should i store the cpu? I have AMD athlon 64 x2 4400+. Do i really need to clean the thermal paste and buy it and put it again when i get the replacement motherboard, or may i seal the cpu and heatshink into plastic bag till then or just put it into package just like when i got it? Any help would be very apreciated.
