GeneralIs the Heat Sink gunk too blame... PinprofessionalglennPattonWork23-Jun-14 2:00 
Hi All,
 
Had a bit of quandary with Parents PC this weekend. It is an old(ish) XP box they got from me, that has been very loyal and is enjoying a hard earned retirement. The issue was the machine when powered on did the memory check displayed the POST screen got to the XP booting Splash and then powered off... pulled the tower out checked the vents for blockage (disturbed a spider colony clearing the fan on the side of the case!) finally got it too boot to safe mode then restarted it and got it too boot to XP cleanly, defragged the hard drive (not needed but..)
Looked it up on Google and found that the behaviour is usually the heat sink on the processor... WTF | :WTF: I have never needed to alter this can the processor, could it be this or has my google fu missed again.
