Fried mobo with new psu?

So I wanted to watch 720p and 1080p movies on the 47'' flat screen in the living. To do this I need to transfer video and audio and went with a video card that has hdmi and still fits into the agp slot of the old pc. In order to run the video card the computer needed a bigger psu. I installed (newegg part#17-709-011) a 580W SUNBEAM. Once installed the power button flashed orange, figured it was dead from the factory. Ordered another power supply (newegg part#17-101-021) - Zumax Topower 550W. The power button flashed orange again! I tried this psu on my other main computer and it works fine. Now I uninstalled everything new and re-set up the computer the way it was in the first place. The power button flashes orange! I have another old dell psu, same thing. But all of these power supplies work on my optiplex gx270... except I haven't tried the original sunbeam. I'm thinking that the first power supply I bought somehow fried the motherboard. I disconnected everything from the motherboard except the old video card and one stick of ram and it does the same thing. Help! Thanks.

    this is a dell box. it's also around six years old. I doubt dell would offer any help at this point. Should I still contact them?

    this is Dell box? I also fried my mb once, while installing the wrong memory. Dell sent me a new MB. They will check it over and see if its really fried.

Yes, it sounds like the motherboard from the Dell machine is now ready for the recycle yard. My son had an old Dell that the motherboard failed, and one by one, all add on cards, and eventually the RAM stopped working. Those old Dell systems can only keep going for so long, and besides, why hang on to it? Get a new PC, they are low priced now, and you get such a faster, smoother running PC.

Hi,I have a XP-65DHD RUNCO PLASMA DISPLAY when I want to play a blu-ray movie on 1080p the screen starts flickering so I have to watch the movies on either 1080i or 720p,I really don't know what to do


If you got a blueray player (the hardware) it should have come with a disk with software. If you got the OEM version without, you need to buy your own software. PowerDVD should work. If you are somehow looking to download something to play bluray disks on a PC without an actual bluray player, you need to buy the drive.

How do i get my tv to run 1080p


A 1080p set will only show 1080p if the broadcast or satellite co sends it. I don't know of any cable co's doing that as yet. True HD isn't in full motion as yet. 720p is your best right now unless you have a Blue Ray DVD Player along with a 1080p full hd movie then you can watch full HD.
A lot of stations are running 1080i which is good for slow motion movies. 720p is best for fast action movies.
