Ok, so my friend wanted me to try and fix his 3rrod problem, so i did xclamp replace fix, it worked for about an hour then gave crazy graphical error. Then it changed from 3rrod to just the bottom right light and gave me (e74 error) on the screen. I figured out that it was the gpu heatsink (not sure if thats right, it was the silver thin one) but i would unscrew the bolts and just put a little pressure on the heatsink and it would work, so i fixed that. NOW, i'm gettin the same 3rrod but its right off the bat when i turn it on. If i screw down the heatsink too much, no power will go to the fan or dvd drive, but they work when its barely screwed down. i just want this p.o.s. fixed so my friend will stop bitching. please help!
p.s. its the elite style mobo with the extra mini heatsink, if that has anything to do with it.
edit: guess i kind of left out the heatgun question, is it alright to use a hairdryer instead so i dont have to dish out a lot of money?
