AMD processor? My computer died "slowly"...while using it the picture slowly darkened so I shut it off. Then when I tried to put it back on, there was no power...nada, no sound, no lights, nothing. I removed the cover, cleaned out the incredible amount of dust accumulated inside and around the fans and now the power goes on but nothing else happens. Has the processor overheated? I would like to try and repair this myself if possible. If it is the processor, where would this be located in
