    That white pad stuff is a double sided adhesive thermal tape isn't it?

    Man I feel so sorry for you but you should have asked for some tips on how to get that **** apart before... literally... tearing into it

    A heat gun may have softened the adhesive or you could have tried to soak isopropyl/metho/acetone in there to weaken the glue

    You should inspect the CPU socket closely as all that force being applied to the 4 screws might have ruined or warped the mainboard there too. If you get the bios chip soldered properly that may also produce the same symptom of short detected 1 second off/no post.

    I dont think anyone expects thermal tape taking a heatsink off and it would be hard to tell unless you have taken that heatsink off many times and know by feel what it's like coming off.

    Ive never seen anything ever like this before, who the heck did this ?
    Superglue and epoxy or glue gun rubber/glue is not conducive to keeping things cool.

    This is insane, to see the memory come off like that. I'm just speachless...

    Not sure why benny thought the OP could have done anything.
