tell what you did?............the checksum is from a cleared cmos......means time and date and such needs to be set.

If it booted from what I told you then....save bios defaults and....turn it off....set j10 back to pins 2-3 and replace j11..............now reboot and set bios as needed.

Hi guys, remember me, anyways i decided to use the snesor function on my Heatsink which goes under the processor, and since ive done this, i get LEDs saying Memory Detection Test, i know this can be caused by a number of things, and dont blame my ram or tell me to get new ram, cause it works great until i did the operation, do u think the sensor under the processor is causing this?what should i do?
Please excuse me if one of the other replies answered this; I did not take the time to read them all.

AMD's Builders Guide notes that the thermal interface material on the bottom of the heatsink is very fragile. It also notes that you must replace it it it becomes at all damaged. They give a source for material. The Guide can be found at http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/white_papers_and_tech_docs/26003.pdf.

If the film is damaged, and, if you have run for very long in that fashion, you may have developed CPU problems. These can cascade thru your whole system, damaging the RAM and the Northbridge and the Southbridge. I know that that is not a very comforting thought; but, first, fix the thermal interface, throw some powdered batwing over your shoulder, and hope for the best.
