Guys, if anyone here can help me I will seriously consider you a saint, and you can come over, live in my garage and drink my beer whenever you like. And Im being serious. I live in Houston, so feel free to drop by. Heres my problem, and I hope I have the right forum... I have an E-Machines T-2672 (I know, I know - we all make mistakes sometimes) desktop, that has the following: Athlon 2600XP, 120g HD, DVD-RW, DVD-rom, 256 DDR ram, integrated video, AU31/1.3 462P MB... originally came with a Bestec 250w PS. So the computer starts acting strangely last week, shutting down by itself. After a few more power-ups the computer just stops working completely, so I figure its a bad PS and order a new one. I decided to upgrade and bought the next highest model (Bestec 300W ATX PS), which is supposed to be fully compatable. I drop it in the case, hook it up, and turn it on... and nothing happens. Well, something happens... the PS kicks on as soon as I plug in the PC (the fan spins), my CPU fan spins, and the screen receives a signal... but its just black. The front processor light is lit like the PC is constantly 'working,' but nothing happens. I cant get it to boot or anything. In fact, it wont even let me emergency shutdown. The thing just kicks on as soon as I plug it in. What the heck am I doing wrong? Is my PC just totally shot? Is my HD wiped or something? Someone pleeeeease help me, Im very confused (literally).
