Chaos

post #1 of 3

Just my luck er what...

I transported my motherbaord to work yesterday in order to see if the Tuniq Tower would fit. It does.

I take it home and set her up. I get an odd message about the CPU fan. CPU fan is connected and running. Reboot and same thing. After restarting several times it begins to not POST at all. I reset the CMOS and I'm up and running.. OK w/e right...

I come home today to assemble my dedicated Linux box. I go upstairs to turn on the workstation and I get a keyboard error/keyboard missing. I just replaced the power cord to one of my PSUs (thicker cable) so maybe I tripped the keyboard PS2 connector. Nope. Tried different keyboard. Same thing. Then the PC doesn't POST. And that's where I am with it.

Now to what I think killed my MB....

On the Tuniq Tower there are thumbscrews with springs. Where end of the spring meets the head of the thumbscrew, it grinds into the metal. This creates metal dust that falls on the motherboard.
This would explain the weird errors, it makes sense.

I just needed to get taht off my chest. I'm going for a drive to have a smoke... Maybe when I come back it'll be like nothing ever happened...

dang, thats gotta suck. wrap the part that grinds with aluminum foil , dont know if that would work but at least aluminum absorbs heat easily. Good luck.

the error your CPU is giving you is that it warns you if your CPU fan is too slow, ie if the fan was burned out, or stopped because it was tangled. the fan could have just adjusted itself below 600 RPM (thats default unless you changed it in the BIOS) Mine gave me that error because I have a liquid cooler, and either didnt detect the CPU fan or something like that.
