While i have been fussing about my Acer Laptop Caution on the Hard Drive Test.
I did a Hard Drive test for my Desktop PC which was Good but on starting it up yesterday
smoke came out of the Back at the top smouldering smell and something had fried
So I have now purchased a second hand Self Build Desktop PC for an older Family member
who just surf's the internet. Its Description is...........
Desktop PC, Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse.
DFI LAN Party RDX200 socket 939 motherboard.
Fresh quality thermal paste add to all fans etc. Crossfire ready.
AMD 64bit 3000+ socket 939 Processor.
Again fresh quality thermal paste added.
1Gb Corsair Platinum Twin X RAM, across all 4 channels.
Seagate 320 Sata Hard drive.
Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
All updates as to 20/06/2015 including service pack 1.
Nvidia Geforce 7300 LE graphics card.
Dell 17 inch monitor.
Key board and mouse.
Case does have scratches and paint loss consistent with use and storage.
Ideal silver suffer or second computer.
Computer started up well , Checked Performance of computer which was fine ,although screen went black couple of times with a notice that a driver had stopped working, but re-started ok.
Opened Internet Explorer downloaded a Antivirus and as i was scanning with Antivirus checked documents
and opened the default Video at which point the Screen went blank at 23% Scanned, so, rebooted it,it comes on again
but this time Black screen ,that's all i get now it does start up with all the 4 red lights which change to 1 red.
I took out the Battery and restarted it,it then went to the DFI LAN Party RDX200 on the screen so needed to press F1 ,but, (didn't have keyboard ready)
I had to turn the power off as i needed to go grab the Mouse and Keyboard (as it was in another location)
So Powered up again, once replacing the Battery, and all 4 lights stayed on this time and would not go down to 1 red light .So i have taken the battery out over night
and will see if it will work Tomorrow.
I would like some ideas please on this problem thank-you Forum
