  1. yesterday i was burning a dvd and my computer shut down. it was making
    a loud humming noise like a fan spining very fast. the light turns on when i plug in the cable for the internet and when i press the reset button after
    unplugging and plugging in the computer the cpu fan jerks once then i have to unplug and replug it in again to achieve the same result. I've removed
    everything but the hard drives and the dvd drives, bought a new power supply 500w. With the new power supply the computer does nothing.

    I am running windows 64 AMD athlon 3500+ on ASUS MB that has the new PCI x16 graphics slot, I found out the hard way that it needs (constent power) at all times to work correctly. Hope this helps!

    I think I am one of the few that had the same problem, mine had the same things happend I tried evrething I new and nothing worked tried for bout 1 hour, then I checked where the computer power cord connected to the wall, there was a loose connection, I unpluged the computer and pluged it back in to get a good connection and then cut my computer back on and (it worked)

    Hello and welcome to techspot :wave: :wave:

    it seems u have some hardware failure the best bet is to take it to the place that u bought it and geting the fan checked atleast that what i can summarize from the problem, check if the PSU is supplying power if the cord is connected properly inside and if both the PSU plugs are connected :grinthumb
