Power supply needs to be fixed!
I got an old iMac 2008 from my brother-in-law. It had been sitting in his house for years without being used. He said it was running very slowly so he upgraded.
When I plugged in the machine and turned it on, it made 2 loud popping and snapping sounds and then went quiet.
After some research I am trying to fix the power supply. Any ideas on how to go about doing this? I am planning on replacing the damaged (bulging) capacitors. I want to check the power supply before I put it back in the machine. I don't want to rebuild the computer and find out that the power supply is still bad. Any ideas on how to test the power supply?
Any chance this could be fixed?
Is this a good question?
