Hi GNG! Two weeks ago my home computer died. Here is what happened: The computer was idling as it normally was when I'm going to sleep (I rarely turn it off.) As I'm dozing I hear a pop sound that I believe was a pop up message or warning of some kind (I never got to see what exactly it was.) The sound happened three times and I ignored it. Shortly after the third pop my computer turned off - no powering down sounds that I remember. At first I assumed it was automatically updating and rebooting. But, the system never powered back up and when I consider it actually powered off and didn't shut down normally, I believe the power just flat cut out. As it stands now, the computer does not turn on at all. No power whatsoever, no fans, no beeps, no lights. So far I have replaced the power supply to no avail. Exact same symptom with a new PSU - no power at all. This weekend I plan to strip out all my components to test for a short, but my fear is that it is the motherboard. (Could possibly be the case wiring, I guess... we'll see.) The system is a custom one I built ~4 years ago now. My main issue is the following: My primary hard drive is a RAID0 array composed of two 74GB drives. If I'm forced to replace the motherboard, I'll have no existing hardware RAID array and will have to set up a new one through the new Mboard. In the past when I've had to do this, I've lost all my data. So, is there a way to install a new RAID0 array on a new motherboard but not wipe the data on the existing drives? Thanks much for any help anyone can offer, Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
