Okay, so one day, after being left on for about 2weeks straight my PC fans started to run on high and make a really loud noise. So after this i took it upon myself to try and clean the dust from my PC as a lot had collected. And everything was going fine until I decided to unscrew the Heat Sink connected to my Motherboard( Or CPU, i really don't know) and try and clean it as this was also clogged up with dust. After cleaning it and screwing it back on, and putting the case back on. I tried to turn my PC on, and it turns on and sounds like its booting up fine but, when i plug the monitor on it says "receiving no output, entering sleep mode" I made sure SEVERAL times that the monitor was hooked up right, and i still continue to get this message.. Just wanted to know if any tecs could try and help me with some trouble shooting.


Also. My PC is a ZT, I'm not sure what model number as its no where to be found on the case and i can't get the PC monitor to work to check it.

Thanks..

Make sure everything is plugged in including the 4 pin CPU auxillary power cable. Are you using a separate video card or on board graphics? Try shutting everything down including the monitor and restart everything.

On board Graphics. And I've restarted the monitor and the PC, but uhh. About the 4 pin CPU auxillary cable i don't remember even unplugging anything like that.. But would it be a smart idea to try and unscrew the heat sink again to see if i may have accidently unplugged it?
