wrong AT power supply connecting damage the MB ?

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Dimitar Pavlov, Jan 7, 2004.

  1. Hi everyone,i just did some cleaning of my PC. Unfortunatelly, i
    connected the MB power supply cable little bit sideways (there was no
    protection against that and some pins were where thay are not supposed
    to be) and as a result, when i connected it the correct way the pc
    didn't start. There are no BIOS warnings, the power supply is fine (it
    as an AT power supply). I checked all the hardware, it seems correctly
    connected. Any ideas ? it it possible that my MB or CPU are damaged ?
    10x in advance :)

    Probably burned out your motherboard's chipset.

    You may have Blown your motherboard and Processor if all your other
    hardwaer is still ok and your power supply is ok.
