Hi All, So I'm in the market for a new mobo/CPU/ram right now, but before I buy+install, I wanted to check with all of you to make sure that I'm not going to instantly fry my brand new equipment. Let me give you a brief history of my system so that you know what I'm talking about. About a year ago - I'm sitting at my computer, surfing the net, when all of a sudden the computer shuts down and will not restart. I check the voltages on my power supply and it looks ok. I swap out mobo/cpu/ram and it starts up fine. mobo/cpu/and ram were all a few years old, so I figured it must have been their time to go. TWO DAYS LATER - I go to turn on the computer... nothing happens. I consult the friendly people at techspot.com. They tell me that even though power supply voltages look ok, my cheap PSU could still be frying my equipment. I spend some money on a Blue Storm 500 w/PFC (Decent PSU, right?) and install mobo/cpu/ram off of an old ibm netvista that I got from work. Everything runs fine. two months later - Same thing, hit the power, the fans go on, and board beeps a bit, but there is no video and it is clearly not starting up. I am now resurrecting this system. I would like to use the same case, PSU, hard drives, and optical drives. I would like to replace the mobo, cpu, ram, video card. However, I am wondering that in light of my history, if anybody suspects my case, psu, hard drives, or optical drives could be causing the damage? Do I need to buy ALL new components just to be safe? What do you guys think? Any ideas? Thank you!
