post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi guys , I just reinstalled my asus maximus formula se after small leak on northbridge ,it was only a few drops on gpu so so i took apart and dried properly,when i connected mb i did not put a usb connector on correctly , it was the right socket but i missed 2 pins on the left ,it worked fine at first then graphics went scrambled then no signal to screen ,managed to get it to boot again after pressing cmos button but kept getting same problem, tried different gpu no luck ,then noticed my mistake with the wires , its the one called usb910 if that helps desribe it , also took cmos battery out for 30 mins and depleted pc power .I will be gratefull for any info on this ,thanks.

the usb cable was for card readers so there was no external power source , i did not plug anything into them , only other thing i changed was attaching 6 120mm fans off motherboard using 3 pin connectors but i dont think that should make any difference, the system wont boot at all , power goes to fans and hard drives and disc drives , have to go to work now will try for many hours again later ,if i cant get to boot do u think i should buy a new motherboard ? not that i want to but if this one wont work it looks like i might have to .

If you get 10sec intermittent beep, then it means cmos chip fried,plz give it for rma and stop fiddling with it as more fiddling might make matters worse.

also as a last try : remove all rams, all hdd's ,and drives,gpu clear cmos by pressing ctrl+pg up while pressing the power on button if the beep pattern changes then again fix everything back except gpu one by one..

I know how it feels cos even I fried my 1st mobo

Thanks for help guys ,did contact about rma but still no reply and im guessing they will probably say it is my fault and charge me and may still not have a working board , so im going to buy a new asus maximus formula (non se) not happy with 3/8 barbs on se and new psu which i was thinking about getting anyway,Enermax Modu82+ 625W.one question tho do you think it is safe to plug card readers into new board or might i have corrupted that in some way ? i do not use them anyway and the last thing i want is damage to new board as i am gutted already.+rep guys ,thanks.
