Power Supply Part# L1520F3P
I started to follow the instructions from this site on cleaning up my infected pc. I realized I had two antivirus programs on at once. Well, actually, i had previously uninstalled symantec but not all of it uninstalled. i went to use the norton removal tool. It finished and i clicked the button that said restart. It shut down and a few minutes later I noticed that the screen was stil black and the computer was on. I turned it off holding down the power button. Rebooted, it passed the windows splash screen but that's it. Screen stayed black at that point.
There is only one account on the PC and there's no login password so once I heard the windows tune like windows actually loaded but I couldn't see anything.
I tried all boot modes - safe, safe with networking, etc. I did the boot logging and it found bad sectors or whatever it's called. I assumed all was good but still it just wouldn't load. Everytime it got stuck I shut it down with the power button. I cringed everytime because i know that's not good for the pc and the pc lights were flickering in and out.
**The last time i tried to boot i noticed the short beep and the error message - "915 Fan Power From Power Supply Not Connected".
I opened the PC enclosure and saw that the fan was working although i didn't see it located near the power supply. I'm wondering if there's another fan near the power supply I can't see. Everything is screwed down and Im not sure what to do first. I had moved some wires and saw the P4 wire disconnected, for the CPU i think it was, and put it back in. I don't know if i accidentally took it out at that time or if it has been disconnected. i tried to reboot but this didn't solve it either.
Please advise on what is the first thing i should do to diagnose this problem and get the computer back up so i can complete the software/virus problems. (One of the issues is that somehow the windows xp copy is now coming up as invalid. The windows XP key is on the case so im wondering if someone else took that key and now my license is not valid....)
I attached a pic of the power supply. if pics of the inside of the pc are needed please let me know.
Your assistance with this would be greatly appreciated!!
