I killed my MSI p67

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well my mobo is totally dead, I press the power button and nothing. No sound and no leds light up on the board. It worked great for about a week and a half and I just got in my new SSD so I though while I was installing it I would do a little cable management while I was at it. Well the only thing I did differently than all the other times I have worked in the case is when I unplugged the power cord from the outlet and then took it out from the back of the PSU I forgot to flip the switch on the PSU to off. I seems like there must have been some residual electricity left in the PSU or something cause the mobo seems fried.

I did the paperclip test with the PSU and I works but is now making a loud mechanical clicking sound as well. I got an RMA from newegg but was just wondering if not turning off the power switch on the back off a PSU is capable of frying a mobo because now I will have to totally rebuild the pc and I don't want it to happen again.

And yes, I worked on a bare wood floor with shoes and have done so many times so I am like 90% sure it wasn't a static shock from me that did in the mobo. Anybody have some thoughts?

Did you drop something in the PSU?

No, all I was doing was rerouting cables. I didn't move any drives around or anything so there was no screws I could have dropped or anything.

Same thing happened to me recently. What kind of beeps did you get from the MB speaker?
Eventually I found out that my cmos went bad and that is what was causing it to not boot.

Yeah, could be what happened to me, I have no beeps, the mobo is like totally dead.
My only other fear is that somehow when I was rerouting the cable from the power button on the case to the mobo I somehow knocked the connection loose. That would suck. I will have to wait till I get the new mobo and PSU though because I don't have any other components to test my case power button on. I think it is unlikely, but the connection at the power button is really fragile and I can't even get up in there and see it.

I would also try the out-of-case boot. Take the mobo and place it on a cardboard box top and try booting with just one stick of ram vc and of coarse your boot drive.

but before you turn on the mobo, remove the BIOS battery and give some sec and put back on. than try boot again , maybe you have some conflict in bios and it won't let you boot or even turn on the mobo it just happen with me last week and the only think i did is removed every peace of hardware to do some mods and after I put back everything no boot and no power its only toke me 10 secs hope its help

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I was just lucky that I still had a few days left on the 30 day replacment policy from newegg so it wasn't too big of a deal. Kind of a noob question but when you are doing an out of case boot, how do you turn the thing on? Without a case there is no power button. Do you just flip the switch on the PSU and the thing turns on?

Carefully tap a screwdriver across the power pins on the front panel connector.
