Question about Sony VAIO VGC-RA710G PC Desktop
The power supply went bad so we ordered and installed a new one. Everything seemed fine but a little slow. However, when we moved the case to stand it upright, the power supply fell out of place inside the case. We secured the power supply and tried to power up again. It powers up now but we have no video. We've tried replacing the video card but no luck. Did we damage the CPU or motherboard when the power supply fell?
Wired and Worried
Since the power supply wasn't secured properly it actually contacted the motherboard while it was still carrying a charge. For next time, I use zap straps for all of my wires and to secure components. Try removing the motherboard and doing the power supply self test, most likely you will have to replace both the motherboard and CPU though.
