Thread: Comp over my head

    Ok, i'm having some computer problems, and i'm running out of ideas. If anyone can help, i'd much appreciate it. I'll try to give as much info as i can to help diagnose the problem.

    About a year ago, i built my first rig-nothing great, as i was on a budget. (I learned a great deal about it all from this site, thanks!)
    here's the specs:

    FIC AD11 mobo, amd 1700+ processor, maxtor 40g hdd, winxp pro

    so a week or so ago i'm on the comp and i get a blue screen of death saying something about video device drivers. i reset and it works fine for a day or so and then does it again. this time i reset and nothing happens...the machine powers up but nothing is showing up on the monitor. I had been wanting to get rid of the Geforce 2 Ti in the comp anyways, so i bought a Ge4 Ti 4200 8x. i installed it, and still, nothing is showing up on the monitor.

    i've taken everything apart and put it all back together a couple times(including the processor and HSF) and still, nothing. i don't really have access to any spare parts so i can't check if anything else is fried or something. As far as i know the system ran at acceptable temperatures.

    so, any ideas of what else i could check? i can't really afford to replace random parts because we just moved into a new house. I miss my computer! thanks in advance

    the power supply is an allied 300w that came with the case....everything is lighting up(cd drive, fans, etc.) but maybe it's getting to not be enough to power everything?:shrug:

    I had a very similar problem with my computer once. I sent the mobo back and they said it was fine. I had switched everything else out and it all worked. Which left me with a bad CPU.
