Hi, had some questions about Building my new system.
I'm a novice with limited experience, so be easy please.
Recently, while installing a new video card into my old Duron 1200+ system, I believe I may have shorted out my motherboard, as it doesn't beep anymore for bios or otherwise, and sits with a blank screen.
So I have got a new motherboard, and have a new XP 2100+ on it (needed an upgrade, so this is a great excuse, haha). I plan to use my old hard drive and ram and video card and drives.
I have yet to install the heatsink and put the motherboard in the case yet, and I had some questions on the process I should follow when installing every part.
I understand to discharge all static before I touch my motherboard uncovered, so that's not a problem.
I also have installed heatsinks before, so thats not really the issue here, just if I have to do anything to the HDD or peripherals before I hook everything up, power it up and go.
Also have some questions about multiple fans and how they hook up, as I have two fans now, and would love to hook them up. I have a 420W power supply in the new case, so I thought that would be enough power.
If you don't want to write stuff out, I would greatly appreciate URL's to helpful sites.
