|thank u for your reply , I did some tests ,the following devices still work.|
1- Hard drive
2- Display card
3- Cd drives
At this stage I know that the power supply has definitely been fried , I think I will not be able to find out if the motherboard still
works until I swap it over for a working one, so question - Do all PC power supplies give out the same voltage ? meaning I could use any?
Number 2 -if I find the motherboard is dead ,can I salvage the CPU ? they are a b---tard to get out , stuck under their little fan- are there any links that shows me how to remove them ?
Its a gygabyte motherboard ,but notice that this company have old small ones and the newer ones are a bit larger.
The one Im trying to remove is of the large type with 2 levers that loosen the fan, problem is once I push the 2 levers ,the fan only loosen ,but still will not come out when I try to pull it out, any ideas ?
