PSU fried out the Motherboard ?
My computer was working fine and then suddenly last night it started behaving in some weird ways:
- First, one partition of my SATA HDD developed bad sectors.
- Then, my 2nd IDE HDD started taking looooong times to boot. Usually it takes around 20-30 seconds to boot but now it takes 12-13 minutes.
- After some time, it stopped recognizing my both DVD drives. There are no /dev/cdrom or /dev/dvd or /dev/hdc links coming up.
- Now, pushing the power button of my cabinet does not turn off the computer. Well, sometimes it does, sometimes it does not.
- Even after 13 min of booting time, it does not work fine, I keep on getting some weird messages I can not comprehend.
I suspect I have a poor power supply which fried out the MOBO. This was the new power supply I got 4 days ago. So I have removed the newer PSU and using my older one. When I get boot-up messages, except of taking 7 min just to show the grub menu, it takes too long to go next after these messages:
2.) Ethernet Card
Power Button seems to be working fine with this old PSU. when I am logged in, I usually get this message after every 5 or so minutes showing up on the tty I am logged in:
- /dev/hdc Lost Interrupt 0x000000 .....
what can you deduce from all this ?
