So I have this T2692 from after thanks giving sale (299) of 2004. It started dying. After several posts and reading this forum I found that it could be PSU, MOBO and/or CPU Fan. Went around the city to ask for PSU and Fan prices. PSU is 50 (400W) and fan is 15 to 25. After searching one more week with google and all that found that mobo is 60+. Again did not order anything for two more days. Went to local shop to make sure that mobo is not working and I needed it. The guys in shop are lazy and bums. So after 2 hours of me sitting at front desk waiting, they say - sorry we do not have people to test this. Ah, I come back and while coming back thought to test mobo again. I go home and reconnect everything, the giant "e" comes up and then windows started booting. So the chip and board are fine then, though the "e" stays longer than necessary. I disconnect Floppy and the zip drive I added and the booting is faster by thin thread. So I think the power is dying. Let us get a power supply and see how it resoponds. Test proved that mobo is just fine. So is the CPU. I go to shop and ask fo4 400W supply and a fan. Cost? 49.99 +15. Well let us get this. When the bill came out surprise awaited - you are given a 55% discount. So please pay $30 for both. Nice start. Isn't it? I come home and fix both. Now the "e" comes on screen for a fraction of second (almost unnoticeable) and then windows zips through and system is ON and working great like the race horse. I really do not know at this point, if the power supply is a good one or a cheapo. But well my PC itself is cheapo and it does not need a Wharton build of a power supply ;-) So for now the system is good and running fine. Lesson learned - if your PC has "e" longer, and if your power in light is staying on, and if CPU fan is stopping on the way - it is my conviction that your PSU needs a replacement. BEfore it fries the mobo, please consider replacing it. BTW my power light on front panel that used to remain on after system shut off is now working as it should. So with $30 it is back up and running OK. Any comments on if it will fry again? I plan to put a wireless LAN in it soon. OTOH, thanks to best buy when this system was dead I bought a laptop (TOshiba) for 399 in the memorial day weekend. I also took a 3 years warranty plan with them since I am not a familiar with laptop hardware. But now that the laptop and desktop both are up, my family wants a wireless LAN because the laptop already has it. Good going so far. Thanks everyone who posted earlier on T2692.
