One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

smokeI had some free time and decided I’d try installing MythTV on an old PC that’s been sitting idle for a few months.

POP, POP, sizzle.  As soon as I hit the power button, the magic smoke that powers all electronics was released.

So much for that idea.  Now to rummage for a spare power supply.

[Update: 4/4/09]  I picked up a cheapo Logisys 480W power supply for the repair.  The box says “silent”.  My ears say its louder than any power supply I’ve ever owned, and its going back.
