Hello FST. I have come across a problem with my computer. i switched the pc on yesterday and the pc would not power. after checking the psw which had some voltage shorts i replaced the psw with a new one.
i then tried to power the pc but still didnt turn on.
i then checked for shorts on the motherboard and some capacitors had some short voltages, i then resoldered the capacitors and voltages were OK. but still i have no power.
i am guessing the motherboard has been flashed rendering it useless. does this mean the memory may have become corrupted, and that also be useless.
does this also mean that i may have lost data from my hdd?
the specs for this pc are as follows:
amd xp 2000+
artic coolmaster heatsink/fan
SOLTEK SL75-DRV... motherboard
256 ddr ram pc2100
ibm 60 gb hdd
thanks in advance people
