Easy way to test your power supply unplug it from ac and mobo
take a paper clip and jumper the green wire to the grey wire, plug the ac back in,if it turns on that means the power is good.
Its most likly a dead mobo, even if no caps are burnt up it dosnt take much to fry one of those...
Swap out the video card it could be that
2nd if the video card didnt fix the rpbolem check all of the voltages on the PSU, the powersupply can turn all of the fans on and still be bad. It needs a signal (power good) to fully turn the system on, i've seen about 20 PSUs at my job that...
just remeber to add up the current of each branch to get the total and make sure you dont go over the power supplys max on the 12v rail
also why only 1 resistor on each path in parallel voltage is the same on each branch thats on parallel to each other.
So in that setup theyd all get 12v...
I was just using the source voltage as an example
Also if you wire these up in parallel you can put more then 3 on a line
Because in a parallel circuit voltage is the same accross each branch.
So if you have 5 branches each line will get 12v then you cabn have a resistor and 3 leds on...
The optimum settings
20mA peak current
using ohms law
V / I = R
12 / .02 = 600Ohms
If i were wiring that up
i'd go -
negative - LED - LED -LED - 600ohm resistor - Posiive 12v
/\ - LED - LED -LED - 600ohm resistor - Posiive 12v
/\ - LED - LED -LED - 600ohm...
aye i thought of that, but when i posted that i had just gotten off work and was tired got some rest and now im bout to.
anyone got a tool that can tell ya the memory info in windows, i dont feel like restarting it right now to find out dling shizna from a boys ftp and its 70% done.
My pc is pretty good it does what i need it to but i'm thinking about selling it all i really want it for is playing world of warcraft and i think its a bit overkill for the game cept video card wise.
I was just wondering if i should sell my system and what kind of money you think i could get...
