my pc has been working fine till i installed new power supply..i left it after hibernating pc after a cracker noise i rush to pc i feel brning rubber smell in there..smelled power supply it was there...so bought new enarmax powersupply installed it and press front power button and nothing no beep, no cpu fan movement ...no light any where..did my motherboard also fried..?
yes it was working was in hibernate ..alll of a sudden one noise happened...and then i feel smell of rubber burming...right way i tried to turn on pc ..nothing so i thought smell comming from powersupply this must be fried thats why pc doesnot power up...so changed but still no sucess...
Was the old one an Enermax? It looks like the PSU fried the motherboard, but did you remove all components from the motherboard to see if it powers up? In other words, keep only the CPU and memory and power up.
no that was an old cheap power supply..i tried without any io devices only have vedio card ram and cpu on motherboard, still no action ...if the powersupply has casue to fried motherboard will my cpu ok and how about hdd...?
i think mine cpu HDD also fired...i have another pc with amd 3800+ with amd board,i put hard drive in 2nd pc from fried motherboard pc..its sata hard drive ..and pc wont boot at all with this HARD drive as soon as i disconnect this sata hd its boot again as normal...think Hd aslo fried...2nd thing i pull that cpu from fried motherboard and insatalled in 2nd pc.which is working with another amd processor 3800+...as soon as put this cpu3800+ dual core, pc booted no beep.but cpu fan is running no display comes on scree. this mean cpu has fired too
why my another pc doing strange ..when i plugged my sata hd to 2 nd working pc it wont boot at all..as soon as i unplugg sata hard drive pc booted normal..this another pc has 4 sata hdd port on the board..
If you ask that question, then you probably should send the drive to a data recovery service, but it will be expensive. To replace the controller yourself, you'll have to find another identical drive with the exact same controller. It might work once the controller has been replaced, but you could also end up having to use professional services to recover your data. Performing regular backups always is less expensive than having to use data recovery services.
