I’ll be bringing yet another depressing update on the situation of my desktop. It doesn’t work D:
Here’s the scenario:
The system boots perfectly at other places, notably at 2 different technicians’. It’s gotten theirs’ and my head scratching.
It doesn’t boot on any of the power plugs I have at home. None. Extension or not, trust me, it doesn’t. The system’s fine, so are the power cables. I’m suspecting a problem with my house’s circuit grounding, but the strange thing is, my desktop’s running fine for a whole year. Not to mention my other appliances work fine. The laptop I’m on now is plugged to the same plug I used for my PC. Router, sound, mobile phone charger, lights all working OK.
How it happened:
I simply took the PC out and opened up the system unit to do some hardware upgrades. Upgraded version failed to boot, and rolled-back version failed to boot as well. Brought to the techies and tested the boot with both hardware configurations, it worked fine. Got into POST, OS screen, etc.
Tried both commercial and industrial computer solution companies, namely Bell Systems (from SimLim) and Powersonic Computer Systems. They tested the PC OK.
Well it doesn’t boot. Not even to POST. System stirs for barely half a second and dies off. To be more accurate the light on the system comes on and dies. System fan dies, nothing comes online.
None of the techies could do anything, and I thought to consult an electrician.
None as for now, which is why I thought I’d ask fellow readers if you have any idea as to what’s happening. Any questions I’d be attending to the comments. Asked comrade Danny Choo to help garner his readers to help, hope he’d catch my email.
