The only reason I am putting this here is because I personally think its better suited for what my intended purpose is. Now then. I am getting bored with my life and need a little project to work on. This project would help me gain some experience that I could use as well. I have been wanting to make a server from the spare parts I have for a while now. The spare parts are as follows: AMD Opteron 165 DFI Lanparty UT nF4 Ultra-D OCZ DDR400 3200 (2x1GB) Sunbeam 450w PSU LG DVD±RW IDE drive Maxtor 40GB IDE hdd Maxtor 300GB SATA hdd Windows 7 Beta Random mid tower So i am planning on making this a media/file server for all the computers in the house. I already have one print server in the house and that is my dad's machine. Might turn my brothers into one as well. There are three desktops and one laptop. I have run into a hiccup though. I cannot get the PC to boot and I had it working just fine two months ago when I upgraded my dad's computer. It has been sitting in a box ever since. I had the computer booted at one point, fans spun, but kept shutting off. I have tested the PSU with a tester and it gets all green lights. I have jumped the PSU and it comes on. Ive tried to jump the computer itself to turn it on thinking that maybe its just the switch on the front of the case. I couldn't get it to jump. I hvae tried pulling all cables and the video card along with a gig of ram to see if it would boot and its a no go. The PSU calculator says I need 301w to get this thing going and I still have ~150w to spare. Shouldn't be an issue. Only thing I can think of is the board is somehow dead or there is a short somewhere. Im also thinking about getting another router as mine is giving me problems. Its a Linksys WRT54G and when i try to get to the web interface it just brings me to a blank page. Does this in both IE and FF. What I end up doing is pulling the power cord for 10 seconds and plugging it back in and all is well. It becomes a pain in the ass. With the wireless for my laptop, I was having issues with it saying It couldn't connect to any networks. Nothing I did fixed it. I was all about to go out and RMA my laptop when it decided to work again and I havent had issues since. Thoughts?
