What Chip Burnt on my Mobo?!?!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a gigabyte K8NXP-SLI and after routine work on the HS etc i plugged eveything back in. My mobo has a Dual Power System card who's slot is located next to the 12v conector on the board. Between these are (more like "were") two small chips that did something. Plugged everything in, hit power, and *sizzle sizzle* bye bye two chips. Now my system wouldnt start with for more than 1 second before losing power and dying. Removing the DPS card allowed for a "boot" but without powering my VGA etc. ***?!?! Can anyone with some knowledge of mobo's have any idea what those chips might have done and what may have caused it? I just RMA'd my board today and hopefully I'll get it back all fixed. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think he was asking what the function of those chips was and what could have caused them to short circuit.
