since i have installed my new motherboard and hardware on my second computer it has been working fine, but on the bootup it displays the power fan’s RPM as 0!
Also, when i changed the processor (Athlon XP 1800+) from my old m’board to the new i did not reapply the thermal cream as there already seemed to be some their (didn’t have any cream available at the time anyway) so i just placed it in.:o
and yesterday when restarting my computer, IT WOULDN’T TURN BACK ON!!!
all i heard was two/three large and long beeps and the some sort of siren coming from the motherboard Speaker (AC97 AUDIO)
I took a look in my computer and didn’t know what was wrong, i moved the swith on the back of my PSU:bigsmile: (it was red with 230 on it) and to my surprise it flew a large spark inside the Power unit!
my OS is win98se,
my motherboard is Epox 8rda,
my processor is an athlon xp 1800+,
my graphics card is a geforce titanium 4200,
i have 3 cards of ram 1 is 256 ddr pc2700, and 2 that are 128 ddr pc2100,
and my soundcard is a soundblaster live 5.1 with 5.1 creative speakers:D
