waterleak on mobo

Postby Moby Smurf » Wed Mar 16, 2011 5:04 pm

For those of you who wasn't on TS last night, may not have heard about the slight water leak I had onto my mobo and fairly new graphics card :evil:. Obviously the computer doesn't boot, it's not completely dead but it doesn't even reach POST. I've written off the motherboard, cpu and memory :mad: and have already ordered replacements, I'm just praying that the graphics card is ok and if it is the computer should be up and running by the start of the weekend. If not I have to try to RMA the graphics card.

Sort of how I feel right now

(just had to include the pictures above as they're slightly more original than this guy :lol: )

Won't your insurance pay out enough to buy a whole new rig?

it too expensive using insurance on a "small" amount like a computer since the companies normally have a high "payout"(or whatever it's called) fee

Computer is up and running again, luckily the graphics card survived. Installed windows last night, have begun installing all my programs. Should be done by 2012 :D
