    Re: PC has died - I think

    I could do that - I've built stuff before, but I think I will take the opportunity to reduce my hardware inventory and investigate new storage options - such as storage spaces. I have the box I built...

    I fear you are right. I think I'm resigned to the fact.

    Re: PC has died - I think

    Nah, it's definitely dead. I put in a new CMOS battery, and also to be sure reconnected the monitor, but still nothing but spinning fans.

    Re: PC has died - I think

    I am sure that's not the issue, as it is not making any beeps, which I would expect with no memory/no keyboard etc. (only while testing).

    Re: PC has died - I think

    No. I power on and there is whirring as things spin up, but that is all. Nothing ever appears on the monitor.

    Re: PC has died - I think

    I would be HIGHLY surprised if it was a USB connection problem as the box just sits in a corner and hasn't been moved in months, so there would be nothing to cause that sort of connector damage. One...

    Re: PC has died - I think

    I very nervously connected the PSU from the dead PC to the working PC. I powered on and it booted up no trouble, so I am satisfied that my problem is not with the PSU.

    Re: PC has died - I think

    OK, I managed to get the 2 PCs in to a position where I could connect both the 4-pin and 24-pin connectors. I removed the memory and powered up. The result was exactly the same as before - spinning...

    Re: PC has died - I think

    The PSU definitely powers up. The PSU fan spins, the CPU and case fans spin and the HDD feels like it is working.

    Re: PC has died - I think

    OK, this may be a strange question, but how much of the power supply do I have to connect to be able to prove what we need to know? The 4-pin ATX from another PC will reach to the dodgy one without...

    Re: PC has died - I think

    I don't think it is the PSU. I have the beast open at the moment, and when I power it up, the fans run and the disks appear to spin up, but it just doesn't POST. I'm trying the disks on another PC...

    Re: PC has died - I think

    It's not the original hardware. Its a bit like the woodsman's axe that had two new heads and three new handles, but was still the same axe.

    BTW and totally OT for this thread, I'm still working on...

    Re: PC has died - I think

    I don't have a spare power supply since the great PC meltdown of a few months ago. What I need to is to open it up and check everything out.

    PC has died - I think

    My WHS PC appears to have died.
    When I power on, the disks spin up, but no POST, no beeps, nothing on the screen, nada.

    Suggestions?

    Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22533 downloading now. Described as having "a good set of fixes and improvements", but it all looks fairly minor to me.

    Re: An early Christmas present?

    One thing I've noticed. If I use the Ookla desktop app I get the speed I attached, but if I use the browser version I get maybe 126mbps down , but still 80-90 up. What's happening there?

    I was finding 100/20 quite adequate so I'll keep the $20 for other stuff.

    Re: An early Christmas present?

    I knew that was the plan, but (a) I was expecting to be advised and (b) as Waiatarua was nearly the last place in AKL to get fibre I wasn't expecting it yet.
