    Question Power Supply Fried

    Just built a new AMD 64 Athlon X2 5000 Black Edition system.
    It was running great for about 2 weeks until power supply
    just fried. I ordered 2 more, one 550W Raidmax with modular cables
    and another 680W Chiefmax as a back up. Nether one will come on but both
    light the green light on my Asus motherboard. Where do I start to find out
    what other damage was done ? Could the power switch be bad now ?
    Anyway to bypass the switch to get this to boot ?

    Different Ram is what I would try first if you have some extra. It all could have fried actually

    That's the problem, I don't have any extra parts as this was built new.
    I was hoping to narrow it down. Some kind of tests.

    stashu17, as Lsdmeasap stated your problem could be anything from a single component to nearly all components. The power switch is probably one of the more robust electrical parts and therefore not likely to be the only damaged part even if it is toast. You pretty much need compatible spare parts to properly test your system. The idea of borrowing someone elses parts to test with is not always a great idea either just in case you get lucky and fry their parts while testing.

    unplug as much as you can, ie cdrom, HD's etc until it boots
