    PC hopefully working again ......replaced PSU

    So as some of you you probs know , me an lyns have had an issue with this auld pc we have , changed the ram to 1gb from 256 , changed heatsink and fan , then the trouble started after hoovering the PC. anyway kept switching off at random times but not giving a heat warning ....PSU was 350W

    borrowed a PSU out of me mams old pc , worked fine last night but today wouldnt work , went off when lynds was on here today . Anyhoo couldnt get it to come back on , It was a 250w PSU . I think i have blown it cos went and paid £15 for a new one 450 w and appears to be working ok now .....touch wood .....dont know why but I thought you should know cos i am over the moon

    I feel for you and Lynds. My boyfriend gets really angry if his computer breaks and he can't fix, and especially when you fix one bit and then something else needs fixing. Good on you for trying tho. :thumbsup:
