Mac Pro 1,1 dead after processor upgrade
Today, I swapped my old Xeon 5150 processors for a pair of Intel Xeon X5355. Everything went well, had a bit of trouble getting some parts out, but nothing serious.
After I reassembled the machine, it failed at giving any lifesign. Not even an LED lighting up. AFAIK, this is a sign of a failing PSU. Any other defectuous part should at least have some LEDs light up, fans start up, etc. At least, that's what I believe. But how could the PSU break from changing the processors?
Could it possibly be somenting else. Or just a big coincidence? I love my old Mac Pro and it would make me very sad to see it die.
Is this a good question?
