From the “sad and blue—no dualie” Dept.
I knew it was too good to last.
At 8:45 pm this evening, my computer refused to boot – right after installing a new sound card (an Audigy2).
The power supply seems fine. The mobo is DOA though.
Man, first a fried CPU and now a fried mobo.
Best case scenario, they replace it no questions asked.
Most likely, they will RMA it to the manufacturer and I am motherboard-less for 2-3 weeks.
Worst Case Scenario – Tyan refuses to replace it.
Ironically, I was suppose to pick up my video card tomorrow; the last piece of equipment I needed.
The plan for tomorrow – feign ignorance, exchange my sound card, pick up my video card, and try to exchange my motherboard and put in a purchase for a 550 W Power suppl; my PSU is now suspect.
Hell at this rate, I might as well just shell out for real cpus too.
