What happened to my comp...
« on: June 12, 2004, 09:43:04 AM »

What would happen if I plugged a 4-plug (not molex) wire from the power supply into one of the 3-pin fan plugs on the motherboard. I need to know which part is broken now. I think I fried my motherboard but I'm hoping I maybe hae just killed the powersupply.

Well, there was a little spark where they came into contact. Then I started to cry. :(

I got it fixed. I removed the CMOS battery form the mobo for a while and unplugged all the power. Later I plugged it all back in and it booted fine!

I had something similar happen when I dropped a HD on to the running mobo.  It threw some serious sparks, then shut off.  It would only turn back on after I unplugged the power cord for like 30 secs.

I think there was a guy that did that and he lost his mobo and his HD, consider yourself lucky.
