Yea I'm in a pickle....
Ok so I was messing around with my computer and putting in a new fan I got, it's 4x4 inches, from an old Gateway..... It connects via the Power Supply, but whatever. Before I switched it in, I flipped the little red switch to 230 on my PS, thinking I could boost my voltage to 1.7 or so volts to power my CPU up past 2.7GHz (from 2.2). So I turned on the computer and it booted up for about 4 seconds and then a green flash flared out of my computer and I smelled a bit of smoke and the see through screen on the chasis was fogging up. I immediately turned off my power thing and unplugged it. I tried turning it back on, but it wouldn't turn on. So, I figured what a great time to put in my older 450Watt (same voltage, and it's an ATX) that we bought seperately, this was good because the one I just ruined had come with the chasis. The only thing I was losing was this cool light-up fan that was wired into the PS. SO I put in the older ATX REAL PS, and ripped apart the newer cheaper ANTEC PS. I didn't even touch the hard drive cables. I booted it up, praying that I hadn't burnt up my comp, and sure enough, it got to the BIOS screen, showed the POST screen, and then it bloody stopped. It was happeneing again.... My computer wouldn't read the HARD DRIVES!!! RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWRRRRRRR!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!
So I've tried almost wvey configuration for the hard drives and they won't read. I hear them booting up, and they work in all my other computers.
I guess I'll be playing cs 1.6 with this 700MHz Gateway that has my old BFG FX5500 in it..... At least I'll try OCing this thing..... So what should I do, and what does the "230" option on the red switch on the PS do?
