  • Something blew up in my Mac today....

    I just went to switch it on as normal ... and CRACK! sounded like a fuse...but this was INSIDE the computer (a dual 1.8Mhz G5).


    I checked the power cord/lead and that's fine so it wasn't that fuse....

    I need to use it every day so I need it up and running ASAP...tech places here are saying 5-10 days


    Are there any easy to access fuses inside I could check/replace?


    Thanks in advance....
    >deluxerecordings> .....coming soon

    In the meantime.....here are some old songs


    Oh...and you can watch this too if you like...

    Sorry - there's nothing in there you'll likely be able to replace yourself. There's a good chance you either lost your power supply or the power supply fried the logic board. I had the logic boards replaced three times on my dual 1.8Ghz - either due to a faulty power supply or bad power. I put the whole thing on a new UPS and it seems to have calmed down quite a bit.

    Hopefully you've got Applecare or similar - replacing the logic board will set you back the cost of a new Mac.

          I've heard of this happening before, and it seems to be linked to the power supply.

            No, it didn't, really. No point.
            I've upped my standards; now, up yours.

                About as much point as the occasional PC/Windows bashing that goes on

                  And you had the opportunity to not contribute to that, to not exacerbate it.

                  And you threw it away.

                    What would I have accomplished? It wouldn't even register as a minute blip in the reduction of pointless PC bashing. Had I not made the comment, it really wouldn't change anything. The elitist fanboys will still mindlessly spew PC bashing drivel, a lack of comment by me will do nothing to change that.

                    Thus, I had my little bit of fun with a rather obvious pot shot (and, really, that one was glaringly obvious). Really, was there any point to your comment? I see little defense when the cheap shots are taken at PC/Windows, I make one and I should have been the better man by keeping my mouth shut? Sounds pretty pathetic.

                        As I said, the bashers generate their own fuel. Had I not said anything, it would have made no real difference, other than this thread dying
