I am wondering what is the real problem and whether it is worth while to fix this problem if it just going to fail in another 1-2 months. Please let me know if you are having the same issue and what you think is wrong with this system? (Motherboard design, perhaps?)
I built this PC about 7 months ago, other than a few minor issues, the system worked fine Each time, the system just die out of a sudden as if someone just turn off the power supply. After that, when I press the start button - all fans (on processor, case, PS) will spin for a split of second and stop. ( The LEDs too will be turned on and off during that time) Subsequent pressing on start button produce nothing. Only after turning power off by flipping switch on PS or unplugging the cord from electrical outlet and plugging it back makes the system attempt to start again. But then again... all fans (on processor, case, PS) spin for a split of a second and stop...there were no video input on the monitor(s).
I also noticed that the system behaves differently if I remove the ATX(12V, 2x4)) connector. All the fans and leds will continue to run/lit, but there is no video signal. During this time, 12V is measured on the ATX harness connector . (Wondering whether there is a way for me to check whether the 12v circuitry on the motherboard is shorted..?) Could the VRM on the board is dead?
