My title may not make sense at first but let me explain. I bought brand new computer parts to build a computer from scratch. I got a Ryzen 5 1500x and when I went to install it on the motherboard, I had a ton of trouble actually installing the cpu fan. I removed the brackets that came with the motherboard and when I went to screw in the screws they weren't really working. First problem was they were so far above the actual mounting points that they couldn't screw in no matter what I tried. I looked at a video, which showed the guy screwing backwards at first, hearing a click, then being able to screw opposite corners and finish off installation. My problem was, only 2 screws actually "popped" and were able to screw in place, which didn't really help me at all.
What I am wondering is:
- Is there a way to reset the mounting screws to factory setting.
Thank you for reading!
