Friends PC wont Post.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My friends Compaq Presario (AM2 system w/ an Asus MB) wont post. I have tried his CPU (Athlon 64 3800) in MY RIG, works flawlessly and even overclocks some. His ram (ddr2 800) also works fine in MY rig. I've tried a 7600 GT, a 1950XT 256, and his onboard. I have tried using a different PSU and still wont post. I've tried unplugging the drives. I've tried taking the cmos battery out. It is a M-ATX board. The model is SR2017CL.

He recently moved but I set his computer up for him at his new place and it booted up fine and he has not moved it since.

So basically is his MB dead?

Could just be a dead motherboard. Are you sure everything is plugged in? Do the fans turn on at full speed or at all? Is this a new build?

He has had it for a couple years. CPU fan runs maxed out when it turns on, lights dont blink on his ballistic tracers also.

Most likely the Motherboard. They are usually the weakest link when it comes to a piece of PC hardware especially if he has a crappy PSU. Power surges happen all the time which blow MB's. CPU's are pretty tough and can take alot of abuse, I have never seen one die (except on a youtube video when they took the heatsink off). I would test his PSU though too just in case to make sure it works.
