mobo blew up [pic] - Page 3

post #21 of 24
heres my theory
you put in the new drive and the psu coulnt take the load and it surged
and toke the mobo and it blew up and it might of toke some other parts or maybe the hole thing excepte case...

Keep in mind guys that not only a surge could do that, but also a OVER resistance. That green thingy might have some thin wires that accidentally touched and a high amount of energy would have been produced


Or maybe it just surged

maybe you just got a bad couple of drives bro. I still have my 540mb WD hd from my 386 and it runs fine. Or you were just a knob and didnt know what you were doing.

It was a Abit IP35 Mobo and for the RMA, no luck on it, because ABIT is no more. And there is nothing wrong with ABIT motherboards either, just had bad luck with a crap PSU.

I agree Oup, that has happened in the past on certain PSU's.

For the OP, do not use that motherboard anymore and get a different PSU for sure. I do not think it was the passport itself, it had to have been a surge that didnt get regualted.
