ASUS Rampage III Extreme mobo not turning on

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
As of a few hours ago my computer will not turn on.

It's a really odd problem, since the motherboard seems to be geting some power. The reset button on the motherboard and the ASUS symbol logo on the motherboard keep turning on and off. It is making a electrical "ticking" noise, so there seems to be power going into the mobo.

However the computer will not turn on. I checked all the wiring to make sure othing is wrong. Tested the hard drive and in another computer.

I have not tested the power supply, as I am afraid that the problem could be related to that, and don't wish to cause any harm to the other computer.

The current power supply is a : CORSAIR Professional Series AX1200 1200W ATX12V.

(You can look at the complete computer build in my profile if you want specific specs).

I had thought that it could be a dead cmos battery, from what I read at some other places, but have never had to replace one before, and am still not 100% sure it is that.

Is there a way to test for this?

Any and all feedback is appreciated.
Thank you for all your help and support.

You could just press the start button on the mobo itself instead of the power button on your case if you haven't tried that already.

I have. The problm is that doesn't even light up.. The only things that light up, which is the "reset button" and "logo" do so for a split second, flicker, turn off, and the cycle repeats itself.

Here is a link to a couple second youtube video showing my problem. Just took out a digital camera and filmed exactly what was happening when I hit the power supply's power switch.

The two flickering lights are the only signs of life at the moment.
Also, please turn of your sound, the camera seems to have picked up some annoying white noise.

I would like to properly test the power supply, but noticed that there are no "colored" wires so I do not know which wires are the "ground" wires and which are not. (You are suppose to use a paperclip between the green and black wires), but my psu came with all black wires..

Just borrowed a power supply testing kit from a friend. The power supply works fine.

So it seems it probably has to do with the motherboard.

I am getting pretty frustrated here. After more research, I can't seem to find my problem anywhere. I can't even find someone with a problem that is in the slightest bit similar to mine.

How would I go about testing the RAM or the CPU? I don't have replacement RAM that works with the board, nor another CPU.

I'd take the mobo out of it's case then try and boot up with one stick of ram in the 1st red slot.

The motherboard could be shorting somewhere.

Sorry to hear about your computer man, I know it can be frustrating. frown.gif
