i just bought a new p4 motherboard, 400w power supply and p4 processor.
i put it all togeather and it started up just fine, but the monitor wouldnt turn on, so just out of curiosity i switched the little red thing on the back from 115v to 230v. so i turn the computer on and about 5 seconds later it sparked and cut off. I tried turning it back on but it wouldnt work.
my question is, did i fry the power supply? i didnt see any smoke.
another question is, did i damage my motherboard or processor in any way?
one more question is before i started changing anything out, should i have installed the new motherboard software and then switched over to the new one?
any help would be appreciated. i spent over 350 dollars and i would like to know before buying anything new.
