Question about Dell Dimension E510 PC Desktop
Okay, so i was using my dell dimension e510 (getting ready to do a live update on my virus definitions) and the system shut down suddenly. i was told it was the power supply, so i put in a new one. nothing. then i was told it was probably the mobo, so i sprang for a new one. nothing. so i'm thinking the only other logical explanation is a bad cpu which is gonna cost me several hundred to replace. my question is, before i drop the $$ on a new cpu, is there anything else i could try? i've read about bent pins in usb ports shorting out the computer & causing this issue - i've read that some people have fixed this issue with a new $5 battery for their mobo - and i've read that it could be a bad face plate and/or ribbon cable. are any of these common or even possible? so, other than crossing my fingers & hoping a new cpu will fix the problem, where do i go from here? thanks so much!
