Fist off, general comp specs relevant:
HD: 320gb seagate (16mb)
AMD AM2 Athlong 64x2 dual core 6000 3ghz
2x DDR2 2gb corsair pc5300
Video card 8800GTS 320mb
My computer: When I turned the power on would not start and would not make any POST beeps. I tried removing the video card / RAM / checking all plugs were in properly.. nothing worked. I swapped some RAM into my computer from my brothers.. still didn't work - so I tried his HD (same model, 320gb Seagate) in mine.. and it started to make POST beeps, long and repetitive. I hooked my HD back up and it made the same noises.
Now before I touched my brothers computer, it was working perfect. The only parts I removed was the HD and the RAM. Now I ordered a new HD and new RAM - hooked them both up and his computer STILL makes the long continuous beeps.
Is it possible I killed his RAM / HD and that somehow killed something else??
I'm reluctant to keep fiddling around in case I cause more damage. I'd prefer to fix it myself as I'm now living in a more rural area and a) don't trust computer techs around here and
they would probably take weeks to work the problem out and charge me more than the cost of a new comp
I've read an extensive list of FAQ's and thought that on my computer, the power supply was faulty and killed my HD / possibly my RAM as well. I'm having difficulty hooking up my new power supply on my computer so I can't be sure that was the problem or not.
I'm pretty desperate for advice, I've read so many FAQ's I'm just confused now - and would really like to try to fix my brothers computer.. before he is back from overseas
