disrockerdude Posted December 9, 2010 Share Posted December 9, 2010 Hi, i bought my power supply in August, bought it from newegg and put it into my system. Everything was working fine until today, When I came home from school with my computer turned off. I hit the power in my case and none. I checked the back for any plugs unplugged and they were all still plugged in. I opened my case up and checked the connections. I hit the power again and so a spark come out of the psu fan. I unplugged everything off of the wall and began to diagnose. I started with taking everything out of the case and set everything in a cardboard box. I hit the power and nothing, no fans spin or anything. I went ahead and stripped the whole system down to just the motherboard, cpu and ram. No post. I borrowed my buddys power supply and still no post. I went ahead and tested my power supply on his rig and it wouldnt post. I decided to test my components on his computer. I tested my video card on his and it wouldnt post. My CPU booted so that seemed intact, and so did my hard drives. So now I am left with what I believe is a toasted motherboard, psu, ram, and video card. The video card I can easily rma since I bought that recently and I have lifetime warranty on my ram. Im not too sure about my motherboard though. Is there anything I can do to test out my psu? Im pretty sure its dead since it wont even turn on with the paperclip test. any other suggestions I can do? I really need my system back up and running since finals are just around the corner. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
