i'm trying to help a young lady ( no $ ) get her system up and running. she got a bad keyboard error, shut it down, plugged in a new keyboard, hit the button and nada, nothing, zip, zero. no beeps, no lights, nothing.
i've read that these cheapy p/s's spike and take out the mb when turned on sometimes. my dvm registerd no voltage from the p/s. i bought a new intel 845 mATX mb and plugged in a new 300w p/s and now i get a pulse but no post, no beeps, no video. i also noticed that eventhough the mb's a socket 478 w/845 chipset, it doesn't support a Celeron D 2.93 processor.
i went on the b/s/t forum and might have a compatible cpu coming but shouldn't the thing even post?
