So here's the story of my self-computer repair gone really, really wrong and costly.
Back in September, my Acer computer basically gave out and all I did was upgrade the hard drive. I figured it wasn't worth it trying to get it fixed and instead just get a new one from scratch. Over the next month, I got a new computer case, a new motherboard, a processor to go with that motherboard, and a new power supply. Hooked everything up and.... nothing. Fans turn on, but it doesn't get to POST (no beep codes or anything). I took every precaution possible in putting it together, double and triple checking everything.
So here's my new rig.
-EVGA 500W PSU
-ASRock FM2A58M-HD+ motherboard
-AMD A6-7400K Dual-Core 3.5 GHz Socket FM2+ Desktop Processor Radeon R5 Series (AD740KYBJABOX)
-4GB DDR3 RAM stick
-Rosewill Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case with USB 2.0 Cases RANGER-M Black
Also I have a Seagate 500GB HD (and a WD 1TB HD as backup in case I have to start over). Any help would be much appreciated. I'm also hoping I didn't nuke the motherboard or anything else by accident.
So on a scale of 1 to very screwed, how screwed am I? Is my computer salvageable? Is it gonna run me a couple thousand I don't have to fix it?
