Shit hit the fan with my computer; either the motherboard or the power supply is fried, most likely the former. Expect me not to pop up in-game, unless I install JK2 on this God forsaken ten-year-old rig.

Though it runs JK2 just fine.

What makes you think it's the motherboard igrom? The most likely part to go bad, besides a hard drive these days, is the power supply. If the old computer's psu is compatible take it out and try it on the newer machine...... before you buy a new 1. If your newer computer's motherboard went out it is likely due to a, or several, bad capacitros. You can repair them but it's a pain. If you're mobo is in that state I'd just get a new one.

Yeah, well, I've had issues with the USB ports some time ago, they'd cease to while after booting. Solved that by buying a cheap PCI USB extension card, four ports (funnily enough, the old ones started working as soon as I installed it). That could have been either the mobo or the PSU.

Later on, my rig has developed this peculiar habit: it wouldn't boot right away. A yellow voltage diode gradually blinked faster and faster, the same applied to a noticeable clicking sound once the light became almost constant, and then the computer would start up. Removing a Wi-Fi dongle at the right time would instantly trigger.powering up the system.

Now, as it all died, I had to rule out which part works. I tested the mobo with another power supply to no avail. Fortunately, a power cable was loose, and after plugging it in it became clear that I simply need a new PSU. Not buying one with an 80 certificate, as it only needs to hold out for four months. A cheap ModeCom will do. Should be back in game Monday, Tuesday.

When PSU's are going bad your computer can do really weird things. You can have a smoke or burnt smell when it finally completely fries. If you know it's going bad it is better to replace it right away because it can damage your motherboard.

Glad it was just the PSU. Hope all goes well when you get the new one in man.
