25-50 megatouches, all need tested and repaired
« on: May 22, 2014, 12:35:16 pm »
I've got a hallway in my warehouse filled with these little SOBs. I call them that because I don't like working on them with all their proprietary keys, and hard drive formats and what not.

I've got a wide variety of versions too. Everything from old AT power supplies, all the way up to a few crowns and jades.

So, my question is, what kind of a test fixture can I come up with to test these?

I know I have a bunch of toasted PSUs, toasted mobos, RAM, etc...

As far as I can tell, all of the hard drives work, but I'd like to test them anyways.

Not to mention the ones that run from CD.

Suggestions?

So of them are bartops, some of them are standups.

I don't think it would be any different from how you would test computer parts...

There is no best easiest way, you are just going to have to grind it out.
