Friend smoked his computer?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
My friend's been having temp problems with his rig for a while. (75deg load 69deg idle), but he hasn't done anything about it. On friday night it died. wouldn't turn on. he took the side off and layed it down on the floor, pressed the power button and nothing happened (apart from the fans twitched).

what do you think he's done,

a) CPU fried,
b) PSU Fried,
c) something else fried.

I think it might be the psu cos after a few attempts it turned on and stayed on for about 5 minutes. (enough time to delete certain images!). Now it won't do anything at all. no fan twitches or anything. Even though its not my rig I'm still sad

if CPU was idling that hot, the CPU fan could've got blocked then easily made it cook itself!

but try with a differant psu first, its the easiest bit to replace

1. Disconnect all power connection to the MB and periphials and jump the 20/24 pin green to blacl to see if the power suply starts up. If so, I hope you have a volt meter to test the rails...
Ust the link and chose the appropriate ATX 2.1 or ATX 2.2 PS link as necessary. Some where around page 30ish are the pinouts and there related voltages. ATX form factors
2. Does his system have a speaker on the MB or attached to it to determine any "beeps" and if so referance the correct BIOS beep codes HERE which should answer some of the prssible problem(s)!
