I got this system........ installed the necessary hardware. I was using a Powerlink LPK2-30 400W PSU which came with the system. So I power up & it boots (because I had ME on the HDD from the Dimension 2100), everything worked fine..So I boot into bios so I can set CD to first boot device to install XP.
As I start moving through the BIOS pages the keyboard LED's all blink & go out.....& it freezes there.I have to reset & try again, but same prob!!!
So I move the monitor, mouse & KB back to my main system & it works.
So I boot the D2300 without any devices connected to it to get the XP CD that was in the cdrom...I press the eject button get the cd & press again to close........ I hear a pop & see smoke blowing out the psu (Powerlink).
RAM, HDD, & CDROM is still working fine, but I don't want to risk a new psu (Codegen 200XA1), because I don't know if it's the motherboard or a faulty psu that caused this.
Should I risk another psu???
