to cut a long story short, my computers voltage was altered when it was on, resulting in deadness. i have replaced the power supply because i knew it had died, but still no joy. i have been told the motherboard and the cpu mat also have been affected, but am not sure as regards to the next step. i am on a limited budget, and have tinkered with other compnents, but never a motherboard and cpu. the cpu is an athlon 64 3000 1.8ghz, has 1gb ram, 80gb hdd, dvd rw, and a medion 6610xl 128mb graphics card(another long story). i have seen packages of mb, cpu and ram for around 110 pounds, which is an upgrade. i am unsure as to my motherboard, which is the main problem. what should i do? and help would really be appreciated!
How can you alter the computer voltage while it was on ?. It sounds as if your sysytem is 'Fried', and the best option would be to get a new 'box' complete try click here (Novatech) or do a google. Terry
Moving the voltage controller to a lower value would not have killed anything thing would it? Be that as it may. You brest bet is Novatech as mentioned and a suitable MoBo/Memory/CPU bundle to suit your budget. How is the graphics on the old system? you may be looking for a Graphics card also.
Don't rush it The MoBo may be dead but the Hard drive- CD etc may be OK. Invest in a new hard drive by all means- but that will exceed your budget, and keep the oldie as an external storage drive When you get the new Mobo you will have to reinstall the O/S- Windows will not recognise the new system.
