hi all, my girl unpluged my computer and now the psu wont work. with my roomies psu in my pc boots but the compaq screen shows then starts over then windows finally came on after several trys only to turn off and restart the process. i think that while it was on stand by when she unpluged it form the wall she shorted out my psu and she corupted a windows file. coputer is about 2 years old and never had problems with it.

psu: bestec modle ATX-250-1222/ input: 100-127v-6a
i dont know the rest of the specs because the guy i bought it from never game them to me.

thanks for help

Hi,
Are you able to start Windows in Safe mode (with the PSU you borrowed)?

Two problems most likely. The power supply is most likely gone, and the CMOS needs to be cleared since you didn't shut the unit down correctly.

my roommate started it on a safe mode. there were three modes to chose from and we tried all three and nothing happend. then all of a sudden it booted up parshally then restarted loding windows. after a few tries it started windows and the desktop displayed with all my icons as normal and same background and it was fine for about 5 seconds. then it went blank started agian to try and load windows. i think i do need to restet something back because every thing else seemed to work.
my main reason for writing however was to prove my girlfriend broke my computer by causing a short when she unpluged it. then she corupted files which gives me the current loading problems now that i have put in a new power supply. so if somebody could prove me right i would aprechiate an end to this fight .

mantismatt, none of us on here are stupid enough to get between you and your girlfriend in a battle like this, so we will not talk about that. Did you clear the CMOS and see if that helps?

All you have to do is unplug it, take out the little motherboard battery for about ten minutes and put it back in and fire it up. When it comes up, put it to default and see what happens.
