  • /me joins the very stupid things group

    i also switched plus and minus, but on my psu, and when it didnt boot, i thought that it was the remote, so i connected a wire between remote and plus, but it was between remote and minus, so the fuse went. now it wont boot... the lcd lights up fine, a led on the motherboard is on and the harddrive spins up when i turn the power on, but no beeps from the mobo, and nothing on the screen, did i break more than the mobo???

    the psu is a sproggy 2.6, the pc a compaq 4000s.

    a friend will sell another deskpro and a supernintendo for $30 +shipping but i want to be sure first...

    sounds like you did something to the mobo. dont take myword for it though, i would have to take a look at the system myself.

      You guys have convinced me that when ever I get my dc-dc psu I will spend the extra $5 to hook up a dummy proof quick disconnect.

      Did it smell funny when when you did that GuRuGoD?


      best of luck

            I used a fuse, thats why nothing would break if it happened <- first thought

            ")()?="#(")#(<- second i had yesterday

            ???<- now...

            I tried the pc with the regular psu, booted with no probs, started a song and started pumpin'

            started up the sproggy psu, this was the voltages i got:
            12,01
            -4,96
            -12,28
            5,01
            3,25
            5,0 <- delayed start

            so, nothing wrong, but it didnt boot anyways?

            its bedtime now but i'll put it in the car again and try tomorrow...

                I did something similar last friday...That wonderfull burning smell filled my car as 3 wires melted in my hands OUCH! Thank god I have everything rigged through my ACC ingniton switch. Switched that puppy off fast before any real damage. As a result though, I went back to the inverter...That good ole trusty inverter Its yet to fail me!

                  WOHOOOO

                  dunno what was wrong but its working now!!!!

                  now i only have two problems left: the lcd's blocks show up, and when i bot into windows, the lcd clears, but no text, will look up on that

                  the right side of the output is dead, thats beacuse i went the cheap way and tried to make a ip-bus replacement, didnt work, ill throw in the extra cost of $30 into this project just for fun!
