My System Specs
Was reinstalling an OS on a shuttle this weekend and noticed a long delay after hitting the power button till the system started. Anyway added a fx5200 to this system was running onboard vid prior to this and reinstalled XP. Freind took it home and it wouldn't start up. So today took it back and figured it was just not getting the message through from the start button pulled jp10 plug that control's the start and reset and a few leds on the front panel jumped the power on pins and this thing started crackling like a mother and sparks happening in the power supply. Was cool...
This puppy am afraid is going to blow up. What should I do order a new power supply for this unit or am I just wasiting money and should call it quits on this system, though my freind wont be impressed.
Will a normal power supply work here if I tryed from one of my other systems or will it blow up this sff board ie: a 400 WATT from a ATX case for example?
Power supply smells like a walky-talky set used to when ya opened the package at x-mas when you were a kid...
Thx in advance for any help.
