Still dead after CHV attempt

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
So I am out of ideas completely now.

It started here:

http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherb...-blinking.html

I can't figure out what part is now broken. I've swapped chips, memory, ram, GPU, and motherboards, tried various displays and display outputs, and tested the voltage output of the PSU. Same result. Boots, I can hear the processor spinning and the SSD's clicking, but no POST.

I'm not sure what my next step needs to be...I'm out of ideas.

Kind of confused here, SSD clicking? SSD's dont have any moving parts, what exactly is clicking. Also the processor spinning? HUH? do you mean the CPU Fan? Or am I missing something.

I saw that you had to RMA the CHV, and then you replaced it with your old previously working mobo that all the sudden stopped working as well. I know this might a long shot, but there is the possibility that something on the mobo fried, and that even the new CHV might also be DoA. I know that sounds like a terrible series of luck, but its a possibility.

Also SSD's don't click last time I checked, maybe ur boot drive is broken..

Sorry, I describe things as the sounds I associate them with. My SSD's do make a click and whir noise that's quite loud. I actually went through a long series of emails with OCZ because I thought they were bad when I first got them. My boot drive definitely does click, and has for months with no issues at all. It's not a mechanical click...it's more of a high frequency repeating buzz. A few times a second it makes a short zzzt that I call the click. OCZ claims that's "normal". I say it's crap. By CPU spinning I meant the "thinking" sound, which for all I know could be something else entirely, I just always thought it was power being applied to the chipset.

I have considered that the original board shorted, and am awaiting the new board back to see. I'm pretty anal about my assembly procedures, but stuff like that really can just happen...it would really blow my mind though.

Can a BIOS load without a hard drive installed? Because I am getting a blank screen pre-post, so I had spent little time testing the drives, thinking I should still get to the bios, and get a no drive installed message. I haven't tried booting off a CD...which I should probably try immediately and see what the result is.

The only part I haven't physically replaced is the PSU, because I can't afford to just buy a new one right now. The voltages did all test good, but I just keep coming back to that being the only thing that didn't change.

[edit] I say drives as plural but mean only SSD's...I have the 90g boot drive, and a 40g SSD that is backup up of my windows system folder. My storage drive is currently not connected.

Pyro, I'm convinced it's the PSU now, so much that I'm willing to ship you my spare PSU so we can confirm this. If it turns out it is the PSU, keep it until you can get a new one. If you agree, PM me your shipping address and what not and we'll make this happen.

Wow, very nice of you to offer that.

I also have a spare Antec 750W PSU. If you pay shipping you can keep it, as in keep it forever.. Just let me know.

Wow, that's really a generous offer guys, but I think I found one. I harassed a coworker on the IT squad to bring a spare in from home tomorrow. I should know tomorrow evening if my Kingwin is dead or not. Would really love to get this running again.

Met up and got the part today. Installed the OCZ 700 watt unit, and removed my Kingwin. Had to leave the video card out due to space issues and cable routing, but it proved irrelevant.

New PSU had no effect...same issue still exists. Power goes on, nothing happens. No post, no beeps.

Now I'm really confused...I guess it must be both boards went bad...I'll have to keep waiting until the new mainboard gets here from the RMA so I can confirm.

Was there any light indicators on the motherboard? If not, might be RMA time.

Ouch.. Yeah it sounds like a bad load of luck. Hope the new board works
