    mobo problem (not anything with linux)

    today my processor started over heating, and i found out that its fan was cloged with dust, i blew all the dust out, and now when i start my computer my mobo doesnt pick up any of my hardware (not even the processor) it doesnt even seem to be turning on... its a s 423, and a ECS (something like this) i forget the exact modle, there were only 2 s-423 boards made by them so its either one or the other....

    If all you did was blow out the dust, it sounds like you might have caused a loose connection somewhere within the box while you worked. Recheck all connections.

    More than likely you've blown some dust and it's shorting out a connection. If it were me I would remove all the components, clean the connectors on the car, blow out the slots, and re-install them. If you have a computer shop close by get some good thermal compound (Arctic Silver) so you can clean the processor/heatsink and apply a new coat. Your processor will run much cooler.
