I guess the motherboard is dead?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

a colleague's PC.

Sometimes it boots, sometimes it didn't and weirdest thing was sometimes I press power button, nothing happens for a few minutes and then it boots???)


It was a new Cooler Master 460W power supply (max 1 year old) but the computer is a Striker Extreme 680i chipset (5+ years???)


A removed EVERYTHING from the motherboard exept the cpu and even then it didn't even gave me a bios-beep (I tried another graphicscard and with 1 stick of ram in every slot before, etc)

I short circuit the PSU (green wire with black) and it the fan spins.

I removed the battery, and power for a whole night, nothing

I used a Corsair 750W from my 2nd PC (that works wink.gif) and only connected the "dead" motherboard, nothing happened...

I used a working 8800GTX from my 2nd PC to test it (his card was some Point of View card with no PCI-e power sockets so very basic card...

Also the onboard LCD screen gave no information anymore. It did last year when I sold it to him because I wanted to put in the word ARSE smile.gif So everytime he booted he would see the word ARSE, not knowing what it meant or what he could do to remove it biggrin.gif


Are there other things I can do to test it? Be sure the board is dead? --> If not it will hang next to my other motherboards "Wall of Fame" wink.gif --> as my colleague bought the motherboard from me...

You need a ram module to be able to boot as far as I remember.

Did you try to reset the CMOS ?
Remove the battery and put it back in 2 minutes later. (Make sure the computer is not connected)

Dude tongue.gif read my thread tongue.gif --> I wrote this: I removed the battery, and power for a whole night, nothing

So yeah it's cleared for sure wink.gif And yes I also used the CLRCMOS switch...

Peut-être quand je parle Français, tu-me comprends mieux??? tongue.gif Or something like that biggrin.gif (we have a French speaking part here in our little country smile.gif and even a German part, but I'm in the Dutch part)

Yeah... I have... but that's in my 2nd PC which is "a lot of work" to get that proc out... It's the Striker II Formula with a Q9450 on it, Zalman cooler and 2x 8800GTX in the way tongue.gif

But in the end, I was also thinking of doing it... as that was REALY the last option I guess tongue.gif

Hmm might ask a friend if he has one lying around tongue.gif --> it's not that I need the PC... but it would be nice if it worked (damnit I hate myself loving to build computers tongue.gif)

EDIT: But even with a dead or no cpu installed, wouldn't the bios at least give some bios-code-beeps??? Just asking cause I realy don't know??? Or just boot until it "sees" the dead cpu???

I would try to get it too "sometimes boot" and then do a fresh bios flash and see if that helps also make sure too clean off any dust build up on the motherboard and rear IO ports and check to make sure there are no parts shorting out like bent pins or damaged usb ports smile.gif

if you test it with a different psu make sure too test it with a different video card also at the same time

I don't know what you mean by that and I can't do a BIOS flash as it refuses to do anything.

I always tell my "clients" that they have to clean the case now and then, and they do thumb.gif

And I always check the back ports, not for dust, but for the I/O shield pins that make contact with the case for grounding. Sometimes they are bend into the usb-port and shorting, so no boot.

As I said above, I used a different PSU and GPU so that's also not the case.


Thx for the replies, but the computer is already disassembled and the motherboard hangs on a wooden plate next to my other old motherboards... The Wall of Fame smile.gif
