Is the motherboard dead?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay, so here I am on vacation and I am put in charge of fixing my parents computer. I was told my mom was on it and heard a loud "pop" or "bang". She said it sounded like a bird hit the window or something. This could have nothing to do with the pc since she kept using it afterwards. Woke up the next morning and the pc wouldn't boot up.

It is a msi p55m-gd45 mobo and a intel i5 750. After inspecting it, I also can not come to a conclusion of what the issue is. Obviously something is burnned up. When I go to boot it up, the mobo emits a long beeb followed by two short beebs. The computer continues to stay on but I get no display output so it obviously isn't booting.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

How do the capacitors look?
Bulging, busted, or good?

Loud snap = capacitor issue. Lol no ****....doh.gif thanks man!

After inspection, the mobo looks fine but my old 7600 that I put in there for them doesn't. 4 out of 6 of the large capacitors look like they slightly erupted open. So guess I found the issue.

Nice one man.
=)

Not really a big loss there either.
Assuming it was PCIe you should be able to replace it with a cheap card easy.
