Motherboard might be dead?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I have probably the most generic error ever but I'm going to try and explain it.

Today my computer BSOD'd and on restart my monitors were blank and the backlights turned off as if they were not connected. I have tried everything I could think of but nothing has been working leading me to think that it is probably the motherboard.

Things I have tried:
-Checked all cables/wires
-Reseating GPU
-Different GPU/PCI slot
-Reseating CPU
-Booting without a HDD
-Trying a different monitor

There were a couple times where I somehow got to the BIOS but soon after that it froze in the BIOS and I had to restart.

Anyways that I can confirm it is the motherboard or any other suggestions?

Thank you,
Jocko Homo

One thing you haven't checked. The ram, if you have 2 sticks take one out see how it goes and vice versa. The mainboard isn't completey dead it still has power by the sounds of it. Try clearing the CMOS as well.

See how that works for you.
