I have been building computers from parts for years.
Lately I have been racking my brains with problems originating from faulty parts.
Just the other day, everything seemed to work fine. Fans came on and everything except computer would not come on into opening CMOS. Finally discovered that the power supply was faulty and not putting out the right amount of power. However I lost several hours time in the process.
Is there a way or a good site to find info on how to pre-determine or check 1)CPU 2)Motherboard 3)power supply 4) Hard Drive 5) Memory to determine if they are functioning as expected.
I mean is there a place to put some kind of test meter on or a device to check CPU speed or Memory or whatever. I have wasted countless hours on a perfectly good setup ruined by faulty parts.
