I just bought all these upgrades for my computer.. I started it up for the first time and I think a cord hit my video card fan and a fan blade broke off.. Then a puff of smoke came up.. Now the computer only starts when I don't have a video card in it.. HELP PLEASE!
Hmm, if you have a friend who has working card, I would borrow that. You might have to try RMAing a number of components (PSU, MOBO, GPU). Thankfully you should be covered and be able to return your parts and get new ones.
To be clear, the PC will not even turn on with the video card in?
Well the video card that's in there ive had for awhile.. That's one of the things I didn't buy new. And ya it's not turning on AT ALL when the video
Card is in. The things I got new were the mobo, CPU, and ram. My mobo has a button on it to boot it up manually like that and that lights up when I plug the cord into the wall but won't actually turn on the computer when I press it. When I take the video card out it turns on right away.
There is an led on my mobo that says A2.. I looked it up in the manual and it says IDE detect.. I don't know what that is supposed to mean or if that's realavent to what's going on with my video card problem
