I purchased i was wondering if this happens alot and is there something i have over looked


Answers :

Hi, have you used the same motherboard in the two towers? sounds to me like you may have a couple of faulty capacitors on the board.\015\012Open the case and study the capacitors closely\015\012[with a magnifying glass if need be] capacitors fail very often when heated. they are the round components that sit in sets of 5, 6, or more in a row on the board. if any are bulging from the top or bottom, then its time for a new board.\015\012Regards mistyman
