Question about Computers & Internet
My desktop died, again. It died a couple of days ago, I traced it to the power supply. I picked up a new one with my fingers crossed and Threw it in. The pc powered up (wasn't before obviously) but would not boot from HDD. I put in my xp cd and was going to try to do a repair. I still had the side of the case open and I moved some wires just a little and it died again. Lost the PSU. I obviously have a short somewhere but I have no idea how to locate it. I would rather rebuild using the components I have, Graphics card, tuner, DVD roms, etc.. but I am worried that When I put it together, there may be an issue with one of those and take out the new system. Does anyone know how to locate the exact location of the short. Remember I am losing PSU's and do not want to do any trial and error type troubleshooting. Thanks.
Sounds like you may have lost your BIOS setup. Go inand setup for default and see what happens
