Mobo turns itself off...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I was away from home for a few days visiting friends so when I came back I fired up the rig and went to sit on my bed to check Facebook and shizz on my laptop.

I could see Windows loading on the rig when all of a sudden the whole thing just turned off, I have no idea what caused it but when I tried to turn it back on the whole thing powers up for around 2 seconds before shutting itself down again.

Done the usual, Unplugged all unessesary things, 1 stick of ram, Cleared bios, different psu, checked everywhere for any possible shorts but nadda.

The whole thing will litterally power on for 2 seconds beofre cutting and its frustrating me that it just happened out of the blue for no reason.

Any help appreciated, Rely rely dont wanna have to RMA due to the long wait I always seem to have ¬.¬

Since you tried a different PSU, that rules that out (which was my first guess). Take a look at the MoBo and all the capacitors. Do any of them have any black/brown spots on top? Are the tops of all the capacitors flat or are any of them convex shaped (I.E. bulging)? If you leave the unit unplugged from the wall overnight and try it again the next day does it still stay on for only 2 seconds?

Based on what you have posted thus far, I'm inclined to believe the MoBo has taken a permanent vacation.

When you tried only one stick of RAM, did you repeat that process with the other stick of RAM? I noticed you're using water cooling. Has your loop ever leaked (no matter how small)?

Seems like MoBo going to heaven. Check your capacitors if they don't look like on mine broken one: http://www.overclock.net/amd-general...l#post13540205
Especially Picture 4, there is leaking capacitor pretty well visible.

Nope capacitors look normal, none are bulging or black, all the capacitors on the board are flat. Board was uplugged overnight and tried again just now and still nothing, and yes did the ram thing. No leaks anywhere, I checked thoughrouly as I know this could be the cause but its all clean.

All look fine, they are all flat as a pancake =/.

Looks like I'm going to have to but it's a huge hassle and means I'll be left without a comp for at least a month now.

It sucks whenever you have to RMA a major part like that. I hope you get your replacement quickly!

If it wasn't under warranty and RMA was not an option, I'd suggest baking it. I don't know if it'd help, but if RMA wasn't an option, it couldn't hurt.

That would be ABSOLUTE last resort as I'm almost certain it will just screw over the board more. I've taken it out and inspected it throughly and can't see any defects, Quite pissed off to be honest, Never had an ASUS mobo not die on me, so why I continue to buy their products is baffling me.
