May 18, 2007

Just one of those days! Powered up my buildout PC at 5:30pm, expecting to watch Nightly News in HD, but instead it hung on the ASUS splash screen. "Hmm, that's odd, I wonder what's going on here?" Ok, pressed the reset button, same thing. Pressed the power button, no change. Now, I'm starting to worry! How about a complete COLD boot, since power is always applied to the mobo.

Unplugged the power cord from the PS, waited a few seconds and plugged back in, and at that instant sparks and a small little smoke cloud waffed up from the PS. Wow! Now that's not the type excitement I expected for a late friday afternoon. So much for the evening news!

The power supply went out, but you wonder did the mobo fry also? Ok, things just happen, between the alignment of the earth, moon, stars and PS's do go out! This was the Antec TPII-550 model that I had upgraded to last year. Still under warrenty, but could not wait the several weeks for the replacement to come in. The rest of the evening was researching PS, and found that CompUSA carried the Antec TruePower Trio series TP3-550, along with $40 rebate that would end the next day!

Last day of the sale, and the TP3-550 was purchased for $108 bucks.

Sunday afternoon, begin the process of installing the new TP3-550 power supply. The moment of truth, plugged in new PS, and all is fine. The dead PS, was shipped back on the 30th for $9

The tree roots had clamped down on the sprinkler tube, and required replacement. But having to buy 50 feet, when you only need 20 is typically.
