Did my motherboard just die?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My screen went black and I couldn't turn the computer off, so I switched it off in the back from the power supply. So anyway, it has power through the usb ports and all and even when I hit the power button the fans bump ever so slightly but then absolutely nothing happens. I think it's the motherboard, though I'm not sure. Possibly cpu? Anyway I'm not sure how to figure out which it is so any help would be appreciated.

if the computer is turning on ie power to the usb then its not mobo unless im mistaken ... it could be RAM, VGA, CPU try in that order

try messing with ram first, unplug one, then unplug the other and see what happens if no results try putting in an older GPU or if you have an integrated GPU try that if that doesnt work, try CPU (if you have same socket) if not then take the GPU to another computer and see if it boots up or test the CPU in a freinds rig ... thsoe are all i can think of right now, not sure if its a PSU failure since youre saying the computer is turning on ...

let us know if anything worked or what happens after you try everything

Edit: you should also fill out a sig rig to let us know what you have parts and what not to help us disginguish what could be hte problem (as some parts are more common to fail and ect ... and for future upgrading advice!)

Well it's not ram, i actually have two sets and between 6 sticks of ram nothing responds and I know for a fact the four I had outof my system all worked perfect. I have a Gigabyte 990fx ud3, that has the program on it where the usb is on as long as the power supply is hooked up and on. When I say the fans bump I mean just that, they bump ever so slightly but that's all, nothing actually starts up. I don't suspect the video card bc in the past I've had bad cards and the motherboard will still power on. I'm just not sure I'd it would power on if the cpu were bad.. Also I'm not seeing any led's on the motherboard.

OK, this is my real account full of the info you need. I couldn't sign into it with my phone for some reason, I actually didn't know I had two accounts.

Yeah I guess I'll have to take it to friends house tomorrow and try that out. I didn't think it would be that since it does have power through the usb ports but then again it is the oldest part of my system.

1) If it was the cpu then the rig will power up and still have a black screen.
2) If it was the PSU then it will not power up.
3) If it was the video card then the rig will power up and still have a black screen.
4) I'm 99.9% sure it is the mobo that died.

Thanks, I thought those were the case for each one, but I'm no expert so I figured I would double check!

I kind of went through this recently, only sometimes it would boot and then crash, freeze or bsod, I think it's the mobo and that has been out for RMA for a week or so. I was stupid by continuing to try to get it to work and ended up corrupting my windows install, but I was able to take the files off of the computer, so I guess its not all that bad.

It would only boot if I let it sit off for 10 mins or so, then did the crashing and freezing. Then repeat.

True, but you still can't rule out psu. A malfunctioning psu could have blown a certain component within itself, but still has enough working components to bleed enough watts into the system to make it sputter a little bit.
I'm not saying its not the mobo, but I am saying that I would at least check the psu before I rma'ed my board.
