    I guess that means you are going to put in your old, working power supply?

    I'm saving up to build my own PC, or have cyberpowerpc.com build me one. Most likely when they are having a sale.
    Safka, you are NOT "unknown", you were loved by many, and you will not be forgotten. I will always remember you Puginator.

    It is a learning process and trial and error.

    Regarding SSDs...

    One thing that was touched upon was that programs may open up faster. This benefit can often be treated as being of secondary interest -- but this may be a significant benefit when you need to get something viewed or edited or printed when you are in a rush.

    Generally I think that the primary components needing some attention when desiring a home computer with speed: cpu, memory and disk drive. These three components can be balanced out based on price-gain benefit. Mainly i'm thinking that too little memory causes slowdown; a fast-cpu may cost a lot without gain if the overall system is slow; an SSD may help speed the computer (or it's responsiveness ) more than certain CPU upgrades.


    good luck!

    New power supply is in. Still not working...

    Windows 10 is loaded on the HDD, but I think there's some issue with it. I can get past the mobo bootup portion, but then it goes to a black screen with a blinking cursor. Changing UEFI/Legacy settings don't seem to fix it.

    I don't even know.
