Re: What is dead. PSU, GPU or Motherboard?
The laundry facility isn't in my building so it couldn't have been a power surge that caused my PC to fry. As far as me thinking it was my motherboard, I did research on the specific board and people said that specific things like the USB ports, fans, and other components would randomly die. The USB ports started going out before the computer completely broke down so I was thinking that it was the beginning of my mobo breaking. A week after my USB ports started acting funny is when the mobo died. I am thinking that maybe when the mobo went out, the GPU fried from being on too long without a fan? Or maybe there was a short or something on the mobo GPU slot which caused the GPU to fry, I am unsure. I hooked up my PSU to the old 775 board I had laying around and the CPU fan turned on fine but the GPU fan wasn't running which is making me think that it isn't the PSU because on the board that went bad the CPU fan wasn't even working when plugging it in. I am trying to find someones computer I can use to test out my GPU for now, if the graphics card runs fine in someone elses computer, obviously I know the GPU is fine and the power supply is what's bad. If the GPU is no good, that means that maybe the motherboard took it out too when it went out somehow.
