Re: Hardware troubleshooting trick
Thats why when i upgrade several items at once or build i test run after certain items.
I installed a TX750 hooked it all up ran the system, prior to installing the GTX260
Same goes for upgrades for me as it does trouble shooting.. if its multiple items its good to go one at a time that way if you run into trouble its easy to narrow down.
I also normally post on the table with the mobo out of the case on a new build but i do it
CPU, PSU, RAM (given theres onboard graphics ofcoarse) and short the switch make sure i have post before i install it in the case. just habit.
