dead mobo on my hands ?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was rebuilding a newER system with board I recently got. I got a bigger case and everything inside of it was working fine-see my profile-.Then windows 7 was telling me to re-seat this USB card I got, well I droppped this card in the proccess and the edge of the USB card was lightly frayed-in my terms the green plastic was damaged some and puffed out a little bit this happed on the side of the card that sits into the PCI slot., bad move.

I rehooked everything back up pushed the Power on case button, then the Computer case turned on, fans were running normal, it let out one long beep for 2 seconds then shutoff, never to come back on again.

I tried a new BIOS battery it didn't work. I was having trouble overclocking my core duo processor. It was holding steady being OC'd from 1.8 to 2.4, then I had to reduce it to 2.3ghz. Not a great board, i guess.


any suggestions or did I kill my new budget board.

i did check & re-checked my connectors, I yanked power from my dvd drive bay, powered on...no luck.

I do have an electrical tester...its telling me there is power going to the board but at that point nothing is happening.

I didnt see any busted or swollen capacitors. So I think I might have did my self in.

Real quick...I just wanted to say that even though I killed my own board by my own means it was under warranty and MSI gave me a New one. They actually gave me a new one.
There were no burns on the Motherboard, no obvious dents or scratches and they replaced it. I'm gonna sell this one and put it towards a new P67 board. Cant Wait.
