hey guys, i'm back on the old comp again.
i got the necessary parts to put the computer together. sooo, i installed everything into the case best i could, and in the end it was beautiful. when i turned it on, everything would turn on for like 1 minute and then just shutoff, anyone know what's going on? if that wasn't enough, my monitor wasn't receiving any signal or anything from the graphics card. i had received the card earlier btw and plugged it into the old one, works fine. anyways, i didn't nkow what was going on. it turns off after a minute and no signal is being sent to the monitor. so i call my dad up and we bring everything to his house.
by the time we get into his place he checks it out and toys around with the CPU fan and pulls it out and then spends most of his time putting the darn thing back in, which takes forever. we plug it into his monitor, and as soon as we turn it on everything runs smooth. even the monitor started showing the motherboard logo and stuff, and it stayed still like that until finally it shut off on its own again.
after a while, he thinks everything is ok and turns the switch on. at that same moment, everything in the house went off. i probably have to mention that at the same time there were like so many other electronics on. the fude box looked pretty old when i took a look at it. instead of switches there were like these small things kinda like light bulbs? that you had to screw in and stuff. when we get the lights back on and the computer, we find out that it's dead. i have an optical mouse with led lights, and when you turn the switch on in the back of the power supply, the keyboard and mouse would light up. you would have to press the power button to get everything running entirely. so when i turned the switch on everything lit up, but when i pressed the button, nothing changed.
so i spend my night crying, wondering what went wrong....i'm trying to get the mobo replaced, i'm at newegg requesting the RMA number to return it. i don't know what's going on, and i don't know who else to go to. i apologize again everyone.
Case- the power supply came with it, so maybe it had something to do with why it messed up?
