I have a problem with one of my desktop pc’s, I opened the pc because inside it was filled with dust! I have a small special vacuum cleaner to suck the dust up (YES I HAVE BEEN CAREFULL, HAVE NOT SUCKED ANY CABLES, DID NOT USED ANY WATER AND DID NOT DISCONNECTED ANYTHING!)
Everything looked normal, just as it should be! But when I connected everything back and turned on the power, the pc did not do anything!!! The fans were not working and I did not notice anything from the harddisk either.
On the back of the pc, I see a small led, when it has access to full power it burns green, but today it is blinking!! And I do not understand why it is happening!
My question: Is there something wrong with my powersupplycable?? Or is there a problem with the powersupply of my whole machine??? If it is just the cable I just can buy a new one and problem solved! NO?
Everything in the pc seems to be normal. There are no cables disconnected and everything is connected as the manufacter has done 5 years ago! I haven’t touched anything since then! I only replaced once the RAM memory but that’s all.
Do you guys think that when I just buy a new powersupply cable, my pc would run again?? I think that the cable isn’t good anymore but I am not sure…
But how do I know which powersupply I must buy for my old pc model??? (is 300 watt okey?) And How do I put in my pc ??? How do I replace the old one ??? Does it take much time ???
Does it cost a lot of money???
I do not want to give my pc to one tech person, and wait 1 week or so till he replaced the power supply! First I must lock my pc up, because it is a family pc and it contains a lot of personal stuff! But I can’t lock it up!!
I’ve replaced a power supply once at work. It wasn’t hard, but can be tricky you don’t remember the screws and their locations etc and the new one had an extra connector cable or two ;D. I wasn’t the one who purchased, so I don’t know how much they cost.
Actually I am pretty confident that I can fix it, but DARTH VADER has a mother who is afraid of evrything… She thinks she knows evrything better and that she can fix things I can’t! BUT actually she is not technical at all!! She doesn’t know anything about computers and stuff! She drives me nutts!!! (:AGY)
But hey, DARTH VADER can handle it… (:TNG)
by the ways… does anyone recognizes a mother like mine??? (:SHY)
I have a mother and she fixes all my things, but I DONT want fixing. Like she’s folding my clothes and putting them where I never could find them without asking her. >:( And it’s not just clothes - everything >:(
I wan’t to have some chaos in my room - but NO !!! No way ! >:(
