    Default Computer Fried So Won't Be On For A Week or more

    Hey, just letting you guys know that I won't be on War Thunder for a while due to the fact my parents fried my computer hahaha. Basically they just yanked the cable out of the PSU while the computer was on and it fried my motherboard, along with my ram and hard drive (maybe more.... Not sure).
    Not really in the position to buy new parts so I will have to scrounge around my mates and find some new PC parts (hopefully)
    Anyway, can't wait to get my computer fixed and ready to to play War Thunder with you all, right after I download all my 350gb of games :P
    Add me on steam if you want to talk since I won't be on teamspeak: http://steamcommunity.com/id/lazou/
    Thanks!

    Heya m8,

    Only part that could have real issues is the hard drive. Mainboard and such usually don't die by someone killing the power mid work.

    Good luck on the fix :)

    No rush to get it fixed. Just keep us apprized if it becomes a real lengthy repair (like over a month).

    As Massa suggested, try getting your hands on a spare PSU first and try booting your system piece by piece until you find the fried part/s, it will help reduce costs :)

    PSU is fine. I should have mentioned that the motherboard seemed to have been slightly dodgy before. I ran a few tests and concluded that one ram stick is now faulty and that my hard drive does need to be replaced unless I can find a way to get it working again.

    Well, you may have some lag issues. But it should be playable @ 4GB. Did you have to replace the MOBO & HDD?
