You may have noticed my lack of presence on my own blog today. That's because I'm having endless difficulty getting a new computer to run. I've built a new computer, but it won't power up. So far I've tried 3 different power supplies, pulled every single peripheral out of it, found out I had a bad memory chip, got the board to power up momentarily with the third power supply, but then stop working....it's driving me nuts. In the morning I'm taking the whole thing back to Comp USA, where I bought the case, motherboard and processor, and hope that they can figure it out. Unfortunately, that's also an hour away from home. In the meantime, I'll try and throw up a post or two for tomorrow morning so you guys won't miss me too much. I'll be back to full time posting as soon as I possibly can.
CompUSA is the devil. How far do you live from Ann Arbor? Make my friend Scott fix it. He goes to college at UMich.
Someone only has to mention "computer problems" and I swear my blood pressure goes up.
Are you sure it was the memory chip and not the motherboard? The motherboard may well have damaged the chip!
