Default How do I remove a H100 from Windows?

I want to remove one of my H100's from an older PC to use it in a newer one, Windows 7 keeps returning an I/O error when restarting the system after removing the H100 and re-installing the stock CPU cooler

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Many thanks

You shouldn't have to remove anything. The H100 uses no software s your error has to be coming from something else.

It's possible the stock cooler isn't sitting correctly on your CPU. Remove and remount and see if that doesn't change anything.
NO, I do not work for Corsair! But I am an official forum helper.

is the link software returning the error? a simple removal of the cooler cannot cause a windows error as my esteemed colleague has pointed out
Thinking about combining 2 or more sets of ram?? even the same part# is not suggested, recommended or supported.

System Specs as of 6/17/10
