Win 7 is still a valid licence for Windows 10, but yeah they may complain about that as they don't deal with Win 7 anymore. Any reason why you don't just convert it to Win 10 licence as you can still do that free now (it's a lot better than it used to be, honest!)OK cheers. It's Win 7 Ultimate (I know!), so I'm a bit concerned if I hit that particular hiccup.
That issue I posted about some time ago with the RAM and various problems, turns out the bay where the CPU is seated has some thermal paste in it. I have no idea how it got under the CPU, but I'm pretty sure it's fecked the board and is preventing access to certain parts of it.
Weird, but it makes sense - I was going to ask how you were going with that a while back. Thermal paste is pretty strong stuff, so it could definitely interfere with the pins if it got into the socket and produce random errors.
