A couple weeks ago one of the wires coming out of a hdd hot swap rack (this one to be exact) caught on fire inside of my tower which I had to douse with water to put out. After taking it out my computer surprisingly ran fine for a while but in the last couple of days the following issues have started to surface:
1. Ethernet cable only works intermittently.
2. To get the computer to boot up I have to first either unplug and replug the psu or turn the button on the back of the psu on and off.
3. Unplugging and replugging the psu gets the computer to boot up if I wait a while before plugging it back in but if I press the off on button on the back of the psu the monitor doesn't come on.
4. I've also had the computer shut off when I was in the middle of watching a hd movie though this has only happened once so far.
Unfortunately I don't have a spare PSU to test this with. What do you guys think are likely causes for these problems and what can I do about it?
Is there any software that I can download to test the psu or motherboard? All the utilities on my motherboard's website are for windows as far as I can tell.
What I've done:
Moved the RAM stick into another slot.
Took out the CMOS battery, tested it with a multimeter (was 3.01), and put it back in.
Tested PSU with multimeter and all the volts were normal.
Made sure all fans were working.
Checked for loose plugs.
Went into bios when starting up to check temperatures and got these:
Current System Temperature 27 C
Current CPU Temperature 64 C
Current CPU Fan Speed 3229 RPM
However when using psensor I got this when watching a video:
CPU Temp - Value: 46 C Min: 35 C Max: 55 C
