here is the deal, my friend somehow managed to force a cable into a usb port upside down. How, I don't know, but i'm sure a reasonable amount of force was used. I have already given him the "man, are you dumb?" speech, so we can dispense with that line. Anyway, his comp now just starts and turns off after some beeps. The fans, including the psu, only fire up for about 7 seconds. I have pulled the ram and it's the same thing. The motherboard itself is a P4G533-LA mobo which is primarily designed for Compaq and Hp Pc's. The CPU is an Intel celeron 2.6 with a 400 mh fsb. It's a socket 478. I didn't build it but the person who did is no longer living in the area. Please help, is it the mobo? and could anyone give me a link or guidance in picking a new one? Thanks for taking the time to read this. Hope I gave enough info.
