Had a scare this morning. Thought I fried my computer. Tags: CPUs Computer Last response: November 22, 2009 7:20 PM in CPUs Share tuesday0180 November 22, 2009 6:55:33 PM So me being the n00b that I am decided to move some of the PSU wires around the case while the system was on. I didn't want to shut off the system because I was downloading stuff. I started to move the wires towards the top to put them into my empty 5.25 bay under the DVD player when everything freezes. I must have unfastened something. I proceed to reboot the computer only to have it not boot. The power would turn on, but the screen would be blank. I thought I fried something. The problem was fixed by resetting the cmos jumper on the motherboard. My question is, what do you think caused my system to freeze like that?

Ugh, I remember when I accidentally removed a ram stick on a Running PC last year. I wish I knew what happened, but I shut it off before I turned on the Monitor. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
