Hi all, a little advice if anyone can assist..... in july i put together a pc, buying the componets etc from local computer fairs. However, the clip from the power supply to the motherboard has decided to burn itself out, rendering my pc useless!!!
There are four pins that seem to have burned out, ruining the clip on the motherboard. I am sure the power supply must be the thing to blame, but was wondering whether anyone had experienced anything similar and what they did.
Does anyone know whether the clip on the m/board (the one the power supply locks into!) can be repaired?
what was the capacity of the psu in the atx box? if you can see visible signs of burns on the power connector ? my money would be on a faulty psu which as you know comes with the case,so take the system back to the retailer who sold the case to you,and tell him because of the faulty psu this has blown the mobo, good luck.
guess that's what he's on about, might have not plugged it fully home causing arcing. mobo good buy AsRock latest board (can't remember type) for £30-35. just fitted one, great value, nearly kept it for myself.
