Hello everyone, for those of you who recall, I posted earlier about having problems with my power supply...well i fixed, and here is how... I recall hearing grinding sounds from my pc, and I figured my power supply was screwed up, so I researched, and found a new power supply in an advertisement. But I looked closer at my pc (opened it up, stuck my ear in) and I found that the sickening sound was in fact coming from the cpu fan. So I went to Radio Shack, and bought a new power supply ($30 CND!!) But when I installed that I still heard the sickening sound, but now my monitor was displaying a black screen of nothingness upon startup. So I tried it on my other monitor to find that the same screen appeared. After painful observations (sticking my ear in my pc again, but near the fan ), I realized that my graphics card had a fan, and this fan was located about an inch or two from my processor fan. I realized that my graphics card manufacturer (ATI) are a bunch of disillusioned jerks who think that making there customers pay for phone support will encourage them to buy their products (ahem I now dislike ati greatly). But fortunately I decided to open up the fan, cover it with 3 in 1 oil, and plug everything back in. After this my computer started working again, and here I am with a fixed pc, and a receipt for a cpu fan which will be used tomorow to get my money back. But the twist to this story of frustration, and despair?? When i opened up my processor fan I found that the "PENTIUM 4" which was advertised when i purshased my pc was not present!!! IT WAS A FRIGGING AMD CRAPCHIP!!!!!!!!!! that is my rant, if ever you have problems with fans, or graphics cards, or monit...anything, plz pm me for help lol __________________ Mark "There are 10 types of people in this world - those who know binary, and those who dont"
