I built a computer and installed BeOS 5 on it. It was running fine until I decided to upgrade(uh... upgrade?) it and put an extra fan in the front since the only fan it had was the CPU heatsink. However, now when I [try to] start the computer, not only does the new fan sit there idle, but BeOS boots abnormally fast and right when the desktop is supposed to show up the computer just completely shuts off. The power light isn't on anymore either. Removing the new fan didn't help. Here's the computer specs in case it helps:
AMD K6/2 300 MHz processor(yes, I realize 300 MHz is slow but its ok for my needs)
not sure what kind of motherboard it is, but it's got 3 PCI and 3ISA slots and a socket 7 CPU slot
Yep, I touched the metal several times while I was installing the fan. Just to see if that was the case though, I replaced the motherboard with an identical one(don't ask me how a person winds up with 2 identical motherboards) and it was worse. It didn't even get to show anything on the screen beefore it shut off. I'd guess it stayed on about 2 seconds but I'm too afraid to turn it back on to see. The model name of the hard drive just happens to be "Quantum Fireball" :lol:
PS: I'm suspecting the power supply now but I don't have a spare one to test my theory.
