I ahve an LE board with the spec below.
I recently turned it on and the fans spin up, then stop, then nothing else. need to remove power cable for few seconds before switching on again, and same fans spin up and nothing else. Got the PSU replaced, and not on switch on Fans stay on and HDD spin up, but nothing else.
Not sure if its the MB, CPU or GPU.
I removed the CPU and RAM, and swithed on and never got any error coded tones. power is going to the CPU as I turned CPU fan off to remove the hearsink from the CPU, to remove it. I am sending the CPU back for RMA under warranty.
MB Asus M5A78L LE
CPU AMD Phenom II X2 560 Black Edition
RAM 2X CORSAIR XMS3 8GB
GPU Inno3D 512MB PCI-e eForce, cant remember spec.
PSU Corsair CX600
HAF912 Case with standard fron HDD fan, rear fan, and AMD supplied CPU fan and heatsink. temps on HD were never much above 25degrees.
PLayed around with CPU first few weeks with OC, and unlocking etc. but settled back to the unlocked to 4 cores at standard clock speeds.
This was my first self build and found it pretty handy, but totally stumped by this issue. Any help or advise is welcomed.
