Fried Motherboard? What the hell? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Well, from what I've seen, the RAM is rather difficult to kill. If you have more than one stick, try to take them both out and test individually by plugging into each slot on the motherboard. If one of your sticks is dead, the other one should fire up.

To test the PSU, disconnect the 24-pin plug from the mobo (better to disconnect all of the components), and short pins 15 & 16 (the green wire with any of the black wires, if I remember correctly). That should turn on the PSU. If you have a multi-meter, you can then go ahead and test the voltages.

For $35 your computer store wants to charge for diagnostic, you can almost buy a new mobo...

Try 1 stick of ram, then try the other. Then try each stick in each slot.


Screwed PSU's dont always explode.




I've had 2 go just from my crappy wiring in my house. Just dead. No smoke, no fireworks, nothin.

Could be the ram throwing errors. After you get the MB on the cardboard and does the same thing, try other ram sticks?
