OK, my question is, is this recoverable.
my mate was doing some very heavy 3d processing work on his pc, and left it over night to do the job. When he wakes in the morning he has the blue screen of death. He trys restarting, but it will only get so before just grounding to a halt while starting up. I suspect that the fan he got with the processor wasnt good enough when he tells me this, because i think it must be over heating. (Inside of case is really hot despite 4 fans moveing the air) So on the phone I ask him to take off the fan to have a look at the heat transfer cream. Thing is, when he takes the fan of, the cream forms a suction cup or something between the fan and the cpu, so he rips the cpu off the motherboard.
So we now have slightly toasted cup which has also been ripped out of the motherboard. At this point I told him to put everything down and dont do anything. and definatly dont touch the damn thing.
So, after all this, what are the chances of everything working? (Only ask coz hes got a deadline blah blah blah, want to see if i should by replacement parts now or not).
