I got this d2300 (MB,cpu 17.GHz celeron, powerlink LPK 2-30 400W & case) when i boot it into BIOS it gets there & then the LED's on the keyboard blink & go out & i have to reset because the KB is not functional anymore!!! So I moved the KB, mouse, monitor back to my main PC & booted the dell to get the xp cd that was in the cdrom, so i power up & press the eject button........get the cd & close the tray, when i hear a pop & see smoke coming out of the psu. I opened it I saw a burnt broken transistor.
I was using a hdd & RAM from a dell D2100 & they both still work, so did I fry the D2300 MB??? How can i know???
Before i actuall hook up RAM & HDD, I would power the D2300 with the cpu alone & get the beeps & leave it on for a while & nothing bad happens.
I got from a friend who owed me some $$$. I got it with the powerlink psu (I thought he actually got a std atx psu to work on the dell)
Why this happened?
Is the MB & cpu still good?
Can i rewire a atx psu for the D2300?
