^^probably blew one of those huge capacitors. That happened to one of out old computers and the mobo was fried afterward.
Does everything else still work?

Yes.

There were three explosions (?!) before I managed to get it unplugged. Can't jump it or make it do crap now. It was also so hot that it nearly burned me when I tried taking out of the case.

Actually the psu in the old computer we had here made a farting noise for about 10 sec. I was just standing there paralyzed with shock when it happened

Foothead, how did you end up with that name anyway?

LOL, nice. Was everything OK?

I told my dad that we needed a better PSU when we were building this thing (it was my brother's Christmas present) but he wanted to use the old one we had lying in the corner.

I think it's time for an antec or corsair one.

It was from some old MTV show I used to watch a long time ago.

That sucks.

Anyone know how to turn PhysX on in Batman AA? The option simply is not there.

And before you ask, yes I have a valid retail copy.

You turn it on in game? I thought it was "on" when enabled in the Nvidia control panel. . .
