|alright, comp died one night, took it to get a diagnostic, the guys at the shop said it was the psu/mobo, both were fried, i said fine, went ahead and bought a new mobo, and psu, put em in,it was fine at first, was prolly 2 hours into messin around on my comp and it died...i figured overheating, i put a huge box fan on it and it continued to die...when i got up in the morning it wouldnt turn on at all, eventually it started,cuting on then instantly off soo i started to remove parts and see what might be the problem.|
i took out my disk drive and it started up and came to life, stayed on for a while...till i tried to plug my keyboard in the rear usb drives..instantly it shut down., from there its back to the ol, come on and die stuff.
i was getting one beep, which if im not mistaken means post ran fine.
i took a multimeter to my 24 pin connector and found all had the proper voltage and the grounds where all zero, so im sure its not my psu. now i didnt put any new thermal compound on when i put the CPU on the new Mobo, i'v been told multiple times that may be the problem, but surely that cant be it.
amd athlong 64 x2
theres 4 fans not counting the PSU/heatsink/V-card.so i really doubt overheating is the problem, i'v tried in many different outlets thinking maybe its a bad recepticle..its not that either...i'v about exahusted all options, and i'd hate to have to go to some overpriced computer store to get this fixed.
ty in advance.
