problem with PS or MB??
Posted on 2002-04-24
i have pentium 2 with 266 mhz (i think that's what i remember..) and around 96 mb of memory
few weeks ago, i heard a "pop" from my computer, and some funny smell, like burnt fuse or wornout motor, and i thought it was Power supply that went kaboom, but i was so lazy and not smart enough to know a buncha stuff about computer parts and didn't replaced the ps.
then later, last sunday night, i left computer on, and after 10-20min, the computer shut-down by itself, and i couldn't turn it back on...
so now, i tried to replace the ps, the older one was 250 watts, and i tried with one with 400watts then 300 watts, but none of them starts the computer. i connected all Hard drives, cd-roms, and disk drive, and to MB, both of them gave power to the fan, both on the ps and the cpu, but it won't start the comp (no beep noise or no green light on that indicates the power of the computer..)
i asked around my friends for help, couple said there's problem with videocard, (because the LED light on monitor is blinking orange, not green), or motherboard and/or CPU... i'm pretty sure it is not videocard because i tried with other videocard that i had before which worked, but not with the new powersupply..
could any of you help with my problem i have, and answer this question?
"does the compatability of ps to pentium 4 or 3 work with pentium 2 or others?"
