I am on my Dad's PC now.
The problem is that my computer won't even start, it wont even go to the BIOS. It just sits there with the power on.
It all started when I....
I got a peltier, I was going to see if it would work good on the AMD.
It didn't, it was WAY too weak. I checked the temps in the BIOS and it went all the way to 235 degrees then froze.
So I turned it off and put the other one back on, a Chrome Orb. I checked the temps and they were normal. But then the peltier was still plugged in and the peltier part was not working, I got the wire working and tried it again on the proc.
When I did it was still too hot and before it got WAY hot I shut it off.
I decided I would not use it at all and put back on the Orb once again.
This time when I started the system, it just had power. Display would not come on, hard drives would not churn, it was like it had no proc at all. I took out the proc and it did the same thing.
I have an Abit KT7 RAID, so I checked the transistors, or those cylindrical things, next ot the socket. They were loose since I had to put in an Orb, and it had to have room to get in.
So I don't know if I need to spend $200 for a new Tbird, or if I need to spend $150 for a new mobo.
OR if I can flip a switch or press a little red button to make it all work again. I must have a computer.
I just bought a 16x10x40x TDK CDRW and I really don't want to have to take it back so I can get a proc or a mobo.
Help ASAP PLEASE!!!!!!!!
