Sounds to me like you have a bad MB. My dads computer had the same problem that you are having and it was the MB.hybrid said:ok, the psu has returned, and is fitted. but its still not booting up.
i need urgent help, i have a ton of work to be done, quite alot of which for tomorrow, and this thing is still buggered.
OK - now I see why I haven't heard from you, the NIC will be the least of your concerns. But the fact you wanted one makes me think there's another computer there (your brothers?) is there some way you could think about:-hybrid said:ill keep everyone informed, but i sure as hell hope its a psu problem and nothing to do with my motherboard. i really need to get on my computer, i had work to do this weekend!
I know how you feel - kinda.... but any electrical engineers out there might be able to indicate one thing of many.... first thing kinda obvious - it's amazing the damage a bad PSU can do. So first hope is that the MB took the whole hit. I am worried about the HD though, but they can be sensitive and it may not "like" the other machine. Sorry for stating obvious - hopefully the MB will be the end of your troubles - and I am glad your customer is bearing with you. All you need is the revenue and I feel sure you'll be protected against this in future - I myself am just waiting on my next pay check for external 250GB HD then I wil back up the whole damn wi-fi network here.... stay safehybrid said:...im returning the motherboard it seems, but is that even the problem?
I never told you it was the PSU so I'm clean on that one Now you have to understand that about the only thing we can do is guess what the problem is since the computer isnt in front of us. I really dont know why everyone jumped on it being a bad PSU when you could have broke the board installing the new HS. Lets just hope you didnt crush the core when you installed the HS.hybrid said:see, first you guys tell me its the power supply, which i spent £7 shipping and over a week waiting for. now im told its the motherboard, which ill have to return and wait for.
errr... wish I could give you an answer! There are ways to get them back and ways to determine the amount of "buggeredness" they are in, neither of which am I profficient in (sorry ) BUT I await the post that answers you with interest....hybrid said:... the hard drive, is it buggered?
