I recently upgraded my memory and at the same time unclipped the cooling unit and cleaned the dust off, after I replaced the the fan the computer will not turn on. It acts as though it is running normal but nothing appears on the monitor. I have checked all connections again and again and even tried the monitor with another computer and it works fine. Any tips on what I did to break it and how I might fix it?

This URL shows a pic of the cooling unit, it also has a bunch of small pins on the bottom.[URL]

Thank you for any help,

You pulled the processor out of the socket.

You may have bent the pin(s) on your processor if the processor was still attached to the heatsink.

Another thought., ..You may have installed the incorrect RAM.....If you increased your FSB speed of your processor from 400 to 533, then you may need to re-check the motherboard specs on the manufacturer's website for a RAM/processor upgrade...If RDRAM, then you may not be able to use 45ns, but rather 40 for all RAM. .
