msi 790fx gd70 post problem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
hi guys i recently removed my amd mobo and processor as i have built a new intel system now.
problem is i was looking to sell my 790fx gd70 and phenom 2 955,
but when i connected it back up to test it it failed to post and displayed ff on the segment block this mobo has worked flawlessly since i bought it.
i cleared cmos (no change) reseated everything connected up my new corsair power supply instead (still nothing). i have noticed that the board appears to be sagging in the socket area and the processor no longer goes in the socket smooth no bent pins. is it possible that the board has warped somehow?

I would just suggest RMA. MSI should not give you any hassle as they have been replacing quite a few of these boards.

If you didn't remove the battery for the mobo. You may have fried the mobo.
