Ds3 Dead???

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I bought a gigabyte ds3 and e6300, then i realized that i needed a 24 pin power supply so i just went and picked up the Antec true power trio 430 watt. Before i had an Antec smartpower 450 watt. And I cant even get my comp to post, no cpu beeps or anything. Is this probably a faulty motherboard?? Or could it be the cpu also?? Or maybe a short in the case or something??? If the motherboard fried it would stop it from getting to the other components (right??) such as the cpu, vid card, sound card, memory...

Any info is much appreciated...

I dont understand, why did you need to upgrade the PSU to a True Power to install the DS3?

Well Firstly please fill in your system specs in the User cp at the top of this page.

Does the Motherboard Beep at all if you take the RAM out ? If not then it looks to be a dead Motherboard. However also try a CMOS reset first.

Ok if there is a unwanted power surge going to your motherboard if it fried would it hurt the cpu or any other components?? Shouldn't the motherboard have protection against that??

The Motherboard would Beep if the CPU was Bad. As the motherboard didnt beep without the RAM this shows us that the Motherboard may be faulty.

If there was a large enough Power surge yes the CPU could be damaged. The Motherboard has protection for this...Its within the PSU.
