A client of mine has an XP era eMachines. The power supply has died and been replaced 3 times. I've discharged the motherboard and checked the surge protector.
In the middle of a scan with ComboFix, the machine died.
It powers on and hangs before the BIOS and shows a solid yellow light. I believe the model # is T5062 or something like that.
Aside from a bad outlet, what would cause the PSU to die a few times?
I did notice that the PSU had two similar "four prong square" motherboard connectors (near the CPU) . I don't know that there should have been two of them. I think that the wrong one was plugged in. What would the difference be and why would there be two of them?
