Ah grasshopper....does the wind blow when the sun rises?
Translation....does the fan on the power supply come on when you hit the power button?
Ok, let's go further...when was the last time you opened the damn thing
and cleaned out all the dust bunnies, fuzz, fur, mice, roaches, lizards,
etc from the PC????
If the power supply's fan does not come on, it DOES NOT mean the
supply is bad....read first reply. Take all boards off the motherboard,
you know, all the boards that snap into the one big board in the PC.
If one of those is fried, the power supply will not come on. If one is
toasted, like your video card, and you take it out, and then turn on the
power, the PC will come alive.
