Fan ran too fast, now it's dead!
Hello all, hope someone can help me here.
I bought a Fujitsu Esprimo e3510 second-hand a couple of years ago, very cheap, mostly for recording music.
Since having it, the case fan has always run intermittently fast.
A few days ago, it blue-screened on booting; 4 days after that, it's dead.
It would do a power test when the psu was connected - for one second the lights come on and the fan spins up. Now not even that.
I've looked over the connections, cards, psu, re-seated the RAM but still nothing.
I suspect I've fried the CPU. Is it worth me re-seating that with thermal paste (like I should have done) ? Or shall I assume it melted and replace?
