Computer won't POST

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
About a week ago, I was on my computer when a power outage occurred. The power was out for about two minutes, and when it came back on, my computer would not POST. The lights and fans would spin and whatnot. I reset the CMOS, but whenever I would load the default settings or a preset overclock, it would not post upon rebooting. It resolved itself somehow when I left the computer on for an hour or so, then restarted the computer.

The problem now is that it won't POST again. I tried resetting the CMOS, through the jumpers and taking out the battery, and it still won't POST. The lights at the bottom show the error 7F, which is some blanket code for "there's something wrong with something attached to the motherboard". I tried using one stick of ram in every slot, and using a different graphics card. Nothing works.

I'm hoping that power outage didn't damage my motherboard, I really don't want to pay for a new AM3 board.

Anyone knows what to do?

it sounds like the power outage killed your mobo or processor

are you still under warranty? You can play stupid.

I'm pretty sure the processor is still alive. I mean, the computer did work for about a week with no noticeable drops in performance. Also, the first time I reset the CMOS today, I got to the BIOS, but the computer still wouldn't POST as soon as it restarted.

As for warranty, I'm pretty sure I'm still under warranty, but God knows how long that would take to get a replacement.

Disregard everything, everything is fine now.

I hate this thing so much.
