Specs? Mother Board name and number? Videocard name and number? Power supply name and number?

Does the power supply turn on? Does the system try to load the operating system? Bad hard drive? If he got a new Mobo and he is using the old hard drive could there be a driver issue? If the computer at least boots up what are the temps? Something may have been DOA.

I got a PM from Polar via MWO site... The only info is what I posted. The Vid Card is a 650TI I think. Prior to his machine biting dust, he mentioned on comms that he bought it. TO be able to use it he needed new Pwr Supply (dont know what specs are of what he bought) but when he went to change it out, he broke is existing mobo. So he bought new, took all to shop where it sat for a week with no workie done. he took it back and tried it himself.

I think he said the light comes on on the motherboard, but nothing else is a go. Beyond that I dont know, dont know mb, cpu, ram, hdd, pwer suply or anything other details...

I dont have his fone # either...

IF he makes it to comms, BIG IF, then maybe 1 or some of us can help him. I told him that via return PM and told him to try comms BEFORE taking to another shop. It depends on if he reads the PM before taking action and IF he can get on comms....

Well at least the light comes on :). I hope he put the CPU heat sink on properly. He might want to try taking all the hardware out of the mobo and just go with the CPU, HDD, and the RAM and see if the system will start up. Then he can add the GPU afterwards if that works. Just a thought.

Aw man...

So, I bought a AMD FX(tm)-8120 Eight-Core Processor, ASUS M5 A97 R2.0 motherboard, and a 750w PSU to run er'. When I turned It all on, somehow, my video card had fried.. lame.. the dude told me he put a better video card in, got home. Installed all my drivers for everything and find out he put in an AMD Radeon HD 6450.. which apparently can't even run MWO. So that sucks, guess I'm out until I can get another card D:
