you are saying that you changed components of the computer right? If so, you should install the drivers for the new components and erase the old components from the system. Alternatively, you may find it easier to format and reinstall the operating system then install all the pertinent drivers..

its a difficult one to read

sounds like they re-applied thermal paste I suppose on the cpu?

Make sure the heatsink is sitting FLUSH to the cpu, ensuring that the cpu doesnt over heat and cause a shutdown

Take note of items in red. ensure you reseat the CPU properly and non of the pins are bent out of shape. as for the long boot that eventually lead to NO boot check the hard drive in another computer. maybe drive head is damaged. do you have any USB device attached to the pc when it tries to boot ( devices like an IPOD)

Thanks for the reply i concenterated on reseating it and it started but again it was taking ages at the xp logo ,but after staying on when i switched it off again it wont start just the fan and no boot beep no display obviously,upon investigation i have found that one silver group of huge pins projceting is bend but it has got nothing to do with the processor (as far as i know)its like nails projecting out abt 110 silver pins.pls help me and i really appreciate ur previous reply ,
the questions is that the plastic stud kind of things that settle down the fan are broken so it is not getting properly fixed in the m.b,do u think that wld make any difference plus after taking off the fan found that thermal grease is like how boiling water gets vapoury kindof.
pls help
thanks

what are you talking about ( see item in red) what pins are those. the thermal grease is use to dissipate the heat between the heatsink and the CPU, no vapor thats bad for a CPU, do you see vapor buildup on the cpu.? is the heatsink firmly latch into place.

so the fan connector is broken? if its not sitting in the connector properly? this might be the reason why the fan is working intermittantly because of a poor connection.
And if the fan is working intermittantly then its going to overheat the cpu and make it run unstable and eventually die
