Ok my computer, after the last microsoft update for xp…imagine that! has started to have problems.
It will not boot into bios. it will not beep. the power and HDD activity LED’s will not light up. The reset button will not work. BUT
my dvd burner turns on, my motherboard has an LED on it that will light up, my fans turn on, and i “think” my HDD’s turn on but im not sure about that. my gpu fan turns on as well but its connected to the power supply. my cpu fan is connected to the board and it turns on.
So this is very frustrating. Even worse is that it will turn on after many attemps of powering on and off, and then it goes and works like normal…wtf!
so yah…im afraid one of these times i won’t get lucky and it will never turn back on, so hopefully you guys can help me fix it before that happens
a8n sli premium
3000+ amd venice
2gb corsair xms
150gb western digital x2 in raid
antec 500watt supply (top of the line at the time. $200)
while trying to get it to work, the following is what i have attempted.
removing gpu and turning on resulted in no beeps and no improvements
removing all ram resulted in no beeps and no improvements
i dunno but its really confusing since i can get it to turn on every once in a while…if something was broke it should just stay broke
