Damn computers

Ok. I'm a little bit of a geek, but I finally ran into a problem I can't solve.

Background: I'm fairly horribly addicted to a certain game. Let's call it Everquest. Seems that lately, it would just randonly lock up the ole gaming comp for no reason, and do this all the time.

I, in my infinte wisdom, elected to open up the machine to clean it out. Keep in mind, I'm a half-trained computer technician, and have been building my own comps for 15 years. In a stunning display of idiocy, I took the heat sink off the cpu fan. Oops. I re-assembled it according to Hoyle, but now, when I turn the computer on, it runs for about 15 seconds, and then the sucker turns itself off. Go me.

So, instead of having a gaming computer that won't run one of my games, I have instead a large paperweight. I so rule.
