    It was a risky thing to use the machine knowing that PSU isn't stable. You sure you didn't loose any stuff? PSU failure can cause some serious damage, you know.

    Good luck with the new one, everyone changes at least one PSU eventually, it's just ment to die :lol:.

    Seems like Im more nooby than I thought about computers...

    I have replaced the psu now, everything runs smoothly, every fan etc.

    But...

    The monitor is always in sleeping mode, I cant wake it up, I tried a other slot but that dident help, I tried with plug it in after its on, just to see if I have contact and I do.

    Im thinking right now....is the gpu cooked or sth?

    And yeah I know I need a backup...knowed it for quiet sometime, but my thumb is to far inside my ass atm.

    make sure the video card is inserted correctly into the slot
    if it still doesn't work, then either Card or motherboard is fried.

    also, does the motherboard give you any error code?
    if the board has some display on it, it should give you a code in which you can check with the manual

    or it can give you a sequence of beeps.

    It WORKS!

    Seems like I forgot (well dident know you could) split the 8pins into 4 and pluged it in, now everything works perfect.

    I think you remember a guy called 'J', he helped me, so all thanks to him, and fuck you guys. :p

    You really fall under the Noob category :p

    you left us guessing here without much info to go with.
    it is best to provide a list of things

    what is the system specifications
    what did you do when replacing the PSU

    your problem was the PSU, when it comes to the power supply, a lot of factors come into play when that part is in the equation

    it could have fried your board, video card or other component.

    but anyhow, good thing it works.
    next time be more forthcoming about the problem
    take as an advice :)
