  • One more problem with my home PC

    Well I got windows installed with few problems...but just a few seconds ago i was showing a friend of mine how I could turn my 120 MM fan on and off with a rocker switch (I got bored one day :-) ) And when i ficked it to on...my whole computer powered down, and now it won't come back on...Any ideas of what might have happend? Is the powersupply bad? or could something else screwed it over? Any ideas/suggestions would be apprecitated.

    Flip the switch on the back of the power supply and then turn it back on after 30 secs or so.

    I short out my power supply all the time, that usually fixes it

        ?

        Is it AT or something?

        Unplug it and plug it back in?

        Opened it up and checked the fuse?

          Arby is absolutely right, as I also have done that many, many times especially when using the 12V rail to powerup my DC-DC power supply. Unplugging for a few secs always fixes it.

            A lot of ATX power supplies don't have a switch on the back of them. (Antec's dont, enermax's do, hec's do, a lot of generics dont, etc).

              Alright :-) I unplugged the PSU, then plugged it back in (several times) and still nothing. And I just opened up the cover on the PSU, and went to look for the fuse, but all I found was what looked like a fuse, but had a white (almost looked/felt like it was ceramic?) core, not a glass one like i was expecting...Any ideas? Heres what it is:

                Swap in another ps. If it still doesn't work, probably the motherboard.
