Fried my mobo (hopefully)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just bought a mobo and when I unplug everything from the power except the 24 pin my computer turns on, but when I plug in the atx 12v connector my computer turns on for a second then turns off right away. I am hoping its my mobo and not my processor. I bought a Gigabyte EP35C-DS3R. I read a similar story about the same thing happening to someone. My question is: Should I get the same one again or buy a diffrent one? I only have around $160 dollars.

theres a chance its not your mobo, its most likely either your heatsink isnt onm all the way or, your psu is bad

My processor heat sink? That is on all the way because I haven't touch that and it was working earlier. I can plug in the 24 pin connector, all my hard drives and fans and the comp turns on. But when I plug in that 24 pin connector it does not.

Hey man i had the same problem as you have right now about one weak ago. It is not a sticky button. Also DO NOT restart your pc yet you will fry the motherboard. What your problem is, is that you have to many raisers. Raisers are the little screwy looking things that attach the motherboard to the case. What you need to do is take some of the raisers off i only have about 5 on. See the problem is that the solder under you motherboard is arching. Feel free to ask if you need any more help

It was working before though. It worked actually for about a day. Anywho I just put in my old mobo and everything worked fine. I will return the mobo and get a new one and use less raisers to be on the safe side. Does anyone have a mobo recommendation or should I keep this one?
