It's baaaaaack

by
My compie's back! :D

NewEgg shipped the thing quite fast, and Purolator somehow managed to get it all the way across the country in two days (I paid for 2-5 day expedited shipping). And the power supply was the exact problem. I also took the opportunity to give the whole thing a cleaning with compressed air, and it runs nice and cool now.

But the hero of the day is
Gobby
Gobby
for essentially buying me the power supply. :D I owe you, battybat. Thanks so much!

Everyone give him some hugs.

I had a power supply blow once.  It sounded like a small explosion and my room was filled with the smell of something burning.  Unfortunately it happened late in the evening, so I had to sleep on the couch that night because I couldn't stand the smell.

But I'm glad you're back. ^_^

When the old one died, my computer shut down with a little bass *pop*, and I smelled smoke for just a moment. That's what suggested it was the PSU. When I took everything apart to get the old PSU out (my heat sink has to come off to remove the PSU), I inspected the mobo for any popped capacitors. Obviously, none. :D

At least it wasn't anything too expensive :3

Whole thing, plus shipping, was just under $70 CDN. I was actually expecting a worse cost, too, until I found the PSU I got.

Newegg is awesome. Super fast shipping. The cheapest shipping (3 day shipping) tends to take between 1 to 2 days shipping (Example. A friend of mine ordered a case thursday and it was here friday)

This didn't affect my hard drives at all. I just had a dead power supply.

And I've been unemployed since January, so I can't afford to buy a second computer just to keep around in case this one dies.
