Slim to nil, PC's also at least kinda start booting with weak PSU's most of the time time.

Default Re: HDD doesn't spin, logic board heats

it's not the psu cuz it worked before, i just don't know whether it is the motherboard or the hard drive. and since i'm flat broke i am working on my parents cash flow, so testing them both is out the window. interesting thing that might be weird but my motherboard never came on standoffs in the case, just on a secondary metal attachment to the case. i find it odd that that would happen in a prebuilt. any thoughts?

why is it always the motherboard? it turned out to be both. i get home, plug the new drive in(maxtor diamondmax200GB) and i hear it whir, but the computer still won't pump out a picture. and i've tried it on the integrated and card.
