  • Ram fried PSU?

    i just installed some more ram in my old piii 450 mhz machine it has a 150w psu and was running a cdrw voodoo 3d gfx card ethernet and a 80 gb wd hd it used to have 64 mb ram now it was gonna have another 128 but when i went to power it back up i got nothing no fan on the psu nothing? is it possible the extra ram took this machine over the 150w ps it originally came with?

        Old machines like yours usually dont like itwhen you just stick a memory module with different size or clock speed in the slot. be sure to stick The 128mb RAM in the first slot and then the 64mb RAM on the second. You should get a fan spin anyways, but just in case!

            tried that but all i get off of the psu is a flash of light on the ethernet after i plug it in then it goes black ...same thing that happens with the 64 mb ram by itself.

              Hmmm you should probably start looking for a new PSU. Doesnt cost that much anyways. However, do you smell any burned electronics? Take the PSU apart and see if there is something "exploded". PSU Fan not spinning is usually a very bad sign!
