Whats wrong with my system?
Posted on 2005-03-07
last evening I smelled a tipical electronic meltdown smell.
It turned out to be my PC.
Next, one of the cooling vans accelarated and the next thing the PC turned off.
It was no longer to start up. No beeps at all. Just vans starting.
I measured the powersupply which was 5/gnd/gnd/12
I changed the Processor without result.
I have no spare mainboard or power supply so I can't be more speciffic on the problem.
Though the voltage of the powersupply was OK, the smell came from the PSpply area...
Anyone on this?
Personally I think its the main board or something attached to it.
How can I check this?
