Not been on for a few days. woke up and the first thing that went through my head was its quiet, pc must have rebooted with another windows update. turns out it passed away during the night
Other pc is still churning away but this is the one I use daily and had all my favorites, stored passwords etc etc. its been a good servant and i took the plunge and ordered a new power supply. hopefully nothing else went at same time, if it did well I will have a new power supply to use for next build
Does anybody actually backup their data - sounds good in theory that is all it is with me a theory lol
new power supply arrived spent ages disassembling and reassembling (not easy with my busted arm).
Still dead - must have been the motherboard, I assumed the power supply fan at least should have started up, turns out if it not connected to a motherboard and doesn't get a return signal it doesn't come on, I did not know that. I have found out how to test without a motherboard and what do you know original power supply powers up.
