|Thank you for the info. I kind of thought that might be the case, the size of the tower tell you what size the motherboard has to be. Power supply I was kind of thinking about that, too. Your right, if I want to build one I should get a different tower case.|
If you don't mind me asking a similar question for a different computer, http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/...
This computer stopped working, I mean put the on button and nothing happens kind of stopped working. So a friend said to get a new power supply, which I did, correctly according to him and a few internet sites I went to for help. Turned it on, nothing! My friend said the it probably took the motherboard with it.
Now can you tell me how I could check the motherboard? What kind of tools would I need to do so, I haven't any but the standard around the house kind(wrenches, screwdrivers, etc.)
Also, if I replace the motherboard do I have to buy another processor separately? Or is it a good idea to buy both together that I see at some websites? I really don't know what comes on a motherboard as standard stuff.
Hope you don't mind the newbie questions to much, most of the computer knowledge I have is self-taught, so I know that there is a lot of stuff still left to learn.
