then removing it from the case was as useless as window wipers on a submarine....

it could be grounding on the case somehow (not sure how) but it does happen
u need to run it outside of the case to eliminate that before the RMA nightmare
i still think its ram related ...

ram is usually the most sensitive h/w in the machine

RMAs aren't painful in the UK , go on the site you bought it from, open an RMA Case, print off the sheet, and mail the sheet along with the motherboard to the store, then they will send you a new one haha

It should come up with a RAM failure if there wasn't any, so If nothing came up its not the RAM.

yep jaffa is right if u had no ram it would either state a ram problem or give a series of beep codes ..... the board is dead

now u would have payed someone £50 to tell u that

sorry it could not be fixed

Hi I had the same problem as you, I did exactly what you did in the bios two weeks ago and after that my main pc won't post. I troubleshoot my computer (reset cmos, take out parts one by one etc) and first came to the conclusion that my motherboard was fried. I got it rma'd and after that it still won't post. Then after more troubleshooting (borrowed parts from a friend) I had a feeling that my processor was fried since I swapped everything except the processor. I confirmed my theory by swapping it with another processor then my pc started to boot. I don't know why my processor got fried but atlease my problem was solved.

Hmmm... thanks Gafrin. Do you think that it is worth RMA'ing both the motherboard and the CPU? Because when I first got the motherboard the PS/2 slots for both keyborad and mouse didn't work.

Has anybody had any experience RMA'ing with scan.co.uk? What's there service like? Do you email them to apply for it becuase I can't find anything about it on their website.

Thanks,
Ed

I'm not sure, because i rma'd both the motherboard and processor in my case. But I think I fried them both as when I swapped parts on my first motherboard they all didn't work (even the other processor) but when the rma board arrived I did the same procedure again but this time the backup processor from my friend worked on the new board. Maybe I fried them both. But in my opinion you should rma them both to save time.

About that site, sorry but I don't have any experience on that site, I'l try to research about them a little bit and report back if I see anything about their rma procedures.
