(fluff)Hi, i've been a happy user of my dfi motherboard ever since i've had it, but tonight i ran into some big problems. Tonight i got a 3200+ from a friend and went to upgrade to it from my 2200+. Did everything then booted up and immediately turned off, i knoew from experience this meant improper heat sink seating, so i removed it and redid the as5 and yadaa...
(good stuff)Then tunred it on and nothing happened. Looked and all my diagnostic lights were red, usually a good thing. Reset it then i noticed all lights were red from push of the power button. Not a good/normal thing. This is all happening w. my profile rig btw. I tried Everything. I used both the 3200+ and the 2200+. Different power supply antec (380w true power). different video card (ati radeon 9800pro) and rearranged all memory into different slots and just 1 module at a time. Fearing a short i completely removed the mobo from case and laid it on carpet floor and it does the exact same thing. I have no clue where to go from here... any info woul be great and more than appreciated. Thanks in advace you guys.
Some other factoids:
activity light for network goes on
no video output at all
hard drive lights up and stays lit
Keyboard show sign of life
Thanks again.

Ok well first of all you shouldnt be working in a Electro-Static friendly enviroment, ie on a carpet, AND DO NOT SET THE BOARD ON A CARPET, EVER, the intense static electricity can kill a board, instantly.

How many Diagnostic LED's come on? Before you switched the proc did you clear CMOS?
