I'm new to this community and I just want ask for help to troubleshoot my system.
The problem starts when my PC is on when there was a thunderstorm and suddenly a lightning strikes near our area. It cause our household to brownout and I saw my router and my motherboard sparking during that incident so I immediately pull off the plug. When power was restored, my PC won't turn on but the LED on my previous motherboard(ASUS) is on so I immediately buy a Thermaltake with the same wattage(500W) to replace the damaged power supply
Luckily, my previous motherboard has a surge protection but sad to say, when I am about to render heavy files in Maya, my PC spark a little and restart again. so I troubleshoot myself with these steps:
- Monitor Heat and Voltage supply with Speccy - I suspect first that the problem was overheating
- Replace my motherboard (see below). - I think my motherboard was also damaged
- Replace my old video-card with Higher specs (see below) - and so my video card also
- Exchange a processor(AM3+) form my friend and reapply thermal paste
But sad to say, when I render again the project. I hear some spark with my new motherboard. and I think that the spark was with the connection with 12V near the CPU.
Here is my latest specs of my system,
