I am so glad I found this site, hopefully someone can help me out here.
Bout a comptuer off tigerdirect for my girls. P4 D830 3.0ghz, etc etc.
Came home from shopping, and turned my computer on, checked email, and POOF, it goes out.
Hasn't been running sluggish, or anything. Just bam it was off. So tried to restart, nothing, no lights, no beeps, not sure if the motherboard beeps or not with problems anyway.
So pull everything apart, dust with compressed air, reset the RAM, reset all the power plugs, still nothing.
So I take the memory out, no beeps. Take all the extras out, sound card, etc etc. Nothing.
So out of curiousity, I plug only the main power cord into the motherboard, not the cpu power cord.
The power supply turns on, and lights go on the computer. Plug the CPU power cord back in, and nothing.
Wont' turn on.
So in wishful thinking, I ordered a new cpu fan, cause I obsolutely hate those push pin fans, and a new power supply.
After reading this I guess I will try and check out the processor, but it's only 2 months old, I would hope that it would not go out that fast.
Can anyone give me any suggestions as to if they think it's the power supply or motherboard or processor?
