OMFG MOBO ruined?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Okay last night I got my new case in from newegg, so I got started on the transfer from my stock HP case. I was EXTREMELY careful in transferring the MOBO, making sure to touch the chassis before touching anywhere near the mobo. I made sure no to contact any of the chips, becuase I didn't have an anti-static wristwrap or mat. The only mistake that I made was when I removed the other side case panel (opposite the window) I tilted the case and the mobo slid a few inches down and collided with the drive cage. It seemed to have bent a few of the capacitors (I think, cylindrical soldered components next to the RAM), but they were still connected, so I carefully bent them upright. After connected all of the power cables to my SATA HDD and DVD-RW, as well as my CPU power connection, PCI-E video card, and the main mobo power connection, I then started the PC, and I get this intermittant beeping tone. The CPU fan is on, the case fans are on, but my USB mouse doesn't seem to be active upon boot. I don't get any display, either. I tried reseating the RAM several times, as well as double and triple checking the connections for power, usb, etc. I even tried disconnecting the PCI-E card, the USB ports, and trying to boot with only the CPU power, MOBO, HDD, and DVD-RW drives connected. I also tried connecting the stock HP power switch while keeping the side of the case open. PLEASE HELP ME I AM SOOOOO FRUSTRATED AND MISS MY PC!
I also called HP tech support, but obviously I didn't tell the full extent of the story: I said that I was cleaning my PC with duster and this happened, so they suggested reseating the RAM.

What PS are you using, if it's the HP PS it may have a different pin out config.

That really sucks. You snapped a capacitor. You can solder them back to your mobo... I did that once. It was a pain in the ____ though.

Sounds like the motherboard may be getting earthed. Make sure you removed any needless motherboard risers. Also check that all PSU connections are in your motherboard correctly.

Recheck everything you did to build it. I had the same problem once, mine was from more stupidity that anything you did. Was my first computer build ever, knew nothing about the stuff inside a computer (building wise). So start building the computer up but my manual said to attach the motherboard to the motherboard tray, but it didn't menchan the risers between the tray and motherboard.

So I screwed my ASUS K8V SE Deluxe to the tray, and the board was actually BENT because itw as bending over the mounting bracket on the back for the heatsink. Needless to say when I went to boot up nothing happened and i heard like a spark and then nothing.... nothing but a slight burning smell... was like ***...

basically I lucked out, mobo was fine but friend my new PSU, went back to store and told them it didn't work and they thought it was just a deffective one and gave me new one .

So recheck everything and maybe even try another PSU.

Goodluck

It is the stock HP ram, I have the OCZ GameXtream 700W PSU. All of the same parts that I had in the HP case, and it was working fine. I will check to see if the MOBO is being grounded (I am at my neighbor's PC at my apt. complex). I have reseated the RAM as well. Also, the capacitor didn't snap off, it was still attached to the MOBO, only bent slightly. The Apevie X-cruiser is the case that I just got in the mail, and it has a metal tray for the MOBO: is there anything other than the riser screws that I should check? Also, if the PC is getting power to the CPU fan, this means that the MOBO hasn't been fried, right? I mean, if there was a break in continuity of the circuits on the mobo, nothing would happen when I power up, right?
Thanks guys, this is my first case install, and I sure have freaked out, becuase I LOVE MY PC AND I NEED IT TO LIVE!!!!!
Also, I haven't heard any sparking noise or smelled any burning smell, so that is kinda why I"m stumped.
All of the components on my system specs are up to date, and the ones that I am currently using on the PC. These have worked perfectly fine up until the point that I installed the new case.

Are you absolutely sure that is all it did??? Bent the capacitors?? Perhaps one of the legs has a crack and/or do a more careful inspection of the board...Try one stick of ram in each slot separately...it might have done something to the slots themselves...intermittent beeps usually point to a ram issue but the cause could be questionable...

~edit~ and you did check and make sure the four pin cpu connector is plugged in ....right??

Its really wierd I'll tell you that. I'm thinking your going to need to go through each component and try swapping them out with other components if you got anybody that has some interfaces (be it PCI E or same socket or what ever.)

Did you try reseating the CPU and such? It seems very wierd, if it was RAM I believe your ocmputer will boot up then error. Also, did you plug it in? LOL.

Basically this is tough lol, does anything actually boot up, be it fans or something when you try to turn it on?

Double check your wiring of your Power switch and such to the motherboard.

BTW I went to install my old Asus in a case and I mounted it with the tray out of the case, then went to put the tray in and as I was trying to hold it and screw the tray in, the tray slipped and I dropped my motherboard (I wasn't working on a desk because I felt like sitting ) Yet, since that happened I've never gotten my blue screens I sometimes got on that rig.... odd....
