So I got a new desk today. My top exhaust fan also broke a while back and antec sent me a new one.
So today, I take out everything from my desk, disconnect my computer, and take off the side pieces of the computer to get the fan out.
I got the fan out. To do so I had to take out a ground that goes from the metal inside the case to the top piece of the case to get the top piece out. Took the old fan out, put the new one in. There were 2 screws that held in the top piece about 3-4" away from each other...both on the same piece of metal, so I put the ground in the other hole because it was easier to get to b/c of my video card. I dont know if that has any importance, but I just wanted to state everything i did.
Get the computer back together, get all my wiring figured out for the new desk, power up the computer, seems to start up fine....then stops.
This is what it does:
I can get into my bios settings but I dont really know anything about computers. I did build this one though...with a friends help.
I looked inside and made sure all the connections were good. Had power disconnected for at least 15 minutes. Also moved the ground back to the other side. At the end of the video, the prompt is blinking, although my awesome camera phone doesnt pick it up.
Ideas? Thank god i have 3 laptops...haha.
