Power trouble : help!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey peeps,
I am in a little bit of trouble. Well... not so little actually.

Dad got a little angry with me, came, literally ripped my monitor and keyboard out of my pc, which right now has no case, ripping out the video card, and leaving part of the keyboard cable back in the mobo. The worst thing is - my tea spilled all over it. I was pretty surprised that it worked... Now I just tried to turn it on yesterday... doesnt get power. You hear a crackle, like a short, fans twitch slightly...and then nothing.

The short comes from either the cpu fan or the psu... one of the two, not sure which. I believe and hope it might be my powersupply, cause i took it out right after, and tried shorting the green+black pins - and was surprised to see nothing. I let it sit a while, then turned it on and it spins. If i plug the 24pin into the mobo, and everything else BUT the p4 4pin connector, everything works, only obviously the sysem doesnt initialize. When you plug the p4 in though... ouch.

Thing is... its a 120 dollar highpower 500w with 46A over 3 12v's... cabling is like 1m long, would hate to get rid of it. On the other hand, my ds3 does 500mhz without any mods and stock bios, stock vsfb and vmch. Got my e6300 to 3.45ghz on pc6400 5-5-5-15 at 490mhz 6-8-8-18 1.2825v.... + drain so like 1.25

PLZ help a fellow oc'er

Wow great help you guys are providing.
Anywhoo, i tracked down the problem : theres a brownish greenish spot on the other side of the mobo, just below the power management circuitry Seems gigabyte cheaped out there. BIG TIME.

Anywhoo, i guess its rma time now... better hope their board didnt kill my poor conroe.

Problem is though... i can't find anywhere on the gigabyte site ANYTHING about technical support or rma'ing, so where do i turn to ??? I'm the second owner of the board, so dont have any receipts, but i got the original packaging and such. Plz help this time.

I dont think the warranty cover anyone but the original owner. And good luck with the RMA to giga. *** did you do to make him do that? kill his dog, stab his uncle?
