I tried to turn my PC on, after a few tries and some rest time, it finally turned on. I let it run for a few minutes, it had no monitor plugged in, I was just testing it.
Later on, I tried to hold the power button to switch it off, and nothing happened. I ended up switching it off with the switch on the power supple.
Also, while it was on, the DVD/CD drive didn't power on.
The next day, I tried to turn it on... Nothing.
So I tried changing the little red switch on the back to 220 instead of 115 (I honestly don't know what that does) and it comes on, but my DVD/CD drive doesn't, then when I plug in a monitor, it doesn't come on (I double checked the monitor, it does work)
But, when I switch the red switch back to 115, the lights on the DVD/CD drive come on, then after 2 seconds, it shuts off, and sometimes it will come on just long enough for the lights to pop on, and then it turn off.
I really don't know a whole lot about computers, I know how to throw in RAM and some PCI cards, maybe replace a hard drive, but that's it.
I was thinking if this PSU is fried, then I might try and salvage one from another old PC and resurect it somehow, is that possible?
Thanks for anyone willing to help, I searched this topic all last night on google, and various tech sites, but couldn't really find a clear answer.
