Here are my specs:
2gig ram 2x1gig
Radeon 9800pro AGP
160gig hd SATA
450Watt PSU with an extra 4pin 12v as well as a regulat power connector.
So I build the system about 4 months ago, all going well till today when I put the computer in Standby (as ive done many many times), I then pressed the reset button by mistake (not sure if this is relevant or not) instead of the power button to bring the computer back from standby.... Nothing happened it didn't reset or leave standby, I had to switch it off from the plug.
When I powered it back up the computer will not boot. The system is getting power, all the fans are spinning, my HD and PW lights are on but it wont boot the strange thing is is that my PSU is now giving out a loud high pitch sound (which it never did b4).
Ive taken out all my drives, but still no luck and still the scary loud high pitch sound. My impression is that the PSU has some how failed and might need replacing. I have a spare PSU in the house but it does not have the extra 4pin 12v connector and from when I build the system I needed that plugged in to get it to boot.
Would you guys put your money on the PSU being the problem? I cant test my CPU as I dont have another AMD'64 pc.
This not what I wanted the day WOW:TBC lands on my door mat
