Re: Power Problem
Hello there. I have a MoBo/PSU problem as well. My specs are as follows:
socket 478 board
Celeron A 2.66 GHz
3 IDE HDDs (Maxtor x1, Seagate x2)
128 MB ATI 9250 PCI graphics card
The reason all of this sounds, and *is* old is because I live in Cuba, and I can't really afford the 775 technology. Not yet, at least. So, long story short, I get home from the faculty, go over to the PC, stick my finger into the back-up's switch, and... *BANG!* That's what I heard. Thinking "What the...!?" and "Oh, sh..." I try to turn the PC on, but obviously to no avail. So seeing how the back-up was still on, and the PC itself was off at the moment, I chalk it up to the PSU, and take it to a friend of mine, who has saved me in previous occasions, for a check up. Three days later (yesterday, 24th) he tells me it's OK. But when I get home and mount it back, still nothing! I tried dismounting everything from the 'board, and I do mean *everything*, but the CPU, even tried exchanging said CPU for my previous 2.4GHz, and still nothing. Everything seems fine, both visually (no burns, leaks, swollen filters or otherwise suspicious-looking elements) and olfatory (meaning nothing smells burned, or anything). Any ideas/suggestions/anything? I'm about to give up. Help, please.
