listen to this stupid thing I did....
I flashed bios. I think I flashed wrong bios. PC would not boot next time I turned it on. So I take the battery out to default the bios, nothing. Here is the stupid part...I pulled the 4-pin plug while pc on...yeah I know. Did I zap my CPU? I was told mboard was shot, got a new one but that didn't work. I have a P4 w/ 350w supply. I tried the 350 in an HP P3 500 and it works, but that normally only has a 250w supply. ANy thoughts are apprecited.
someone correct me if i'm wrong, but as far as i know, taking out the battery only resets the cmos, which means all settings are put to default, but the new (or wrong) bios is still there
also, one time i did something really stupid (plugged in or unplugged a cd drive while the comp was still on, i forget) and a big blue spark happened as the whole computer completely crashed. i tried turning it back on, unplugging and turning it back on, etc.
i ran to my friend's room (i'm in a college dorm) and starting griping, and he was like "dude just chill, i did somethin like that once and i tried turning it on 1/2 hr later and it worked"
i wasn't convinced, but 1/2 hr later i went back to try it and the comp worked flawlessly, i don't know how! these things happen haha =)
that's just to tell you that maybe you didn't fry everything, or anything
I LOVE DANGER DEN WATERCOOLING, they went out of their way to both personalize my kit and change my order when i needed to, i had to change my sig to give them props
