    /me PARTS!! 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...

    welcome to the club jol. our next meeting is friday, there will be cookies and juice.

    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!
