Biostar TA-790gx wont post?!?! Help plzz :[

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
alright, so i have the mobo in my specs below. and when i went and removed my graphics card (because i sold it) and tried rebooting my motherboard wont even post. So i figure, hmm maby the onboard was disable in the bios, i install the video card again and yet still no post. i tried starting it with no pcie/pci cards in at all, no usb devices, no hdd, no dvdrw, and i even swapped the cpu for an amd 5400+ and it still wont post. The led indicator lights are both off so im assuming its a motherboard failure.

I just dont understand how this could have happened. i did absolutly nothing to prevoke it :[ Man and i was right about to install my new 4870! I get all excited and then bashed to the ground lol. i even tried booting with that card, nuthin. I also tried another 750watt psu lying around and that didnt make a difference.


Its been past 30 days so i cant rma with newegg. and the biostar technical support service is closed after 5:30. Should i just get the board replaced?
I am by no means just an amd fanboy so i am a little curios and was thinking about trying out intel. What quad core cpu/mobo combo can i do with them for around 300?

Help Please

Sorry if this seems obvious, but did you try a CMOS clear?

Are any of the capacitors bulging?

Try re-seating the heatsink as well.
