grs Posted February 8, 2008 Share Posted February 8, 2008 I have an old Fujtsu/Seimens Scenic XL (if that means anything to you!!) which I've beening using as a storage server with FreeNAS and two 500GB HDD and one 10GB HDD for the OS. I came home this evening I tried to access it with no luck, the yellow pilot LED was on on the front but when I press the power buttom nothing happens. However, if I unplug the mains and reconnect it then try the power button the PSU fan and power LED flicker to life for a fraction of a second. I stuck my head around the back and got a faint burning smell, opened it up and neither the mobo or PSU have any obvious sign of damage. The power connection to the mobo has a standard 20 ATX plug but also a thin, flat 8 pin connector, any idea what this connector is? So long as the HDD haven't been damaged I too bothered, I was going to change the mobo anyway. grs Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
