I recently bought parts to build a computer in the months of February/April and everything went fine. I had my cousin and friend help me out in building this computer mostly for games. Well, my friend used a whole thing of *Heatsink for the processor and my cousin told me that he shouldn't have done that.
(*Note: I'm not quite sure this is what it's called, but I think it is.)
Here are some of the specs, if it'll help:
-BFG Tech GeForce 7800 GT OC Graphics Card
-AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor
-CD/DVD ROM and burner
-2 sticks 1G Corsair RAM and 2 sticks 512MB Corsair RAM
-400W Power Supply
-1 fan on side
Now, after everything was put together and said and done, the computer worked fine. I realized that I needed more fans for my computer, so I ran it as little as I most possibly could while I saved up the money to get more fans. The computer was working fine for a few months until around June and then one day it restarted itself. Since then it would not boot up. I haven't had the time to get it checked out or check it out myself until recently.
I'm suspecting that I might need a bigger power supply since when I try to turn it on it does nothing - the boot screen won't even come up. A second opinion on this matter would be well appreciated.
Thank you very much,
P.S. Also, being new to this as of tonight, if I posted this in the wrong area I apologize in advance.
