pc issue - fried mobo? weak psu?
hey got an issue, not particularly adept at pcs but ill post what tests ive tried to run
tried to install a wd500gb slave hd yesterday
booted up fine and then about to format at disk management (/w Win7)
as soon as i clicked 'ok' to begin formatting, pc shuts down
i got kind of worried at this stage so i ran a series of tests
can turn on but turns off after 6-7s and no display
the next morning, the computer remains turned on but no display
so i guess the psu is fine, or it is really weak
after i thought maybe my old hd was fried so i plugged the new hd as master drive but same result
i did notice the fan on top of the mobo heatsink was running slow, if not, not running at all so maybe the mobo might be fried?
thanks for your input!
i appreciate it
p.s. i want to add that i tried running without any hd plugged in and same result occured (pc turns on but no display)
