Question about Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 (4719331821180) Motherboard
Yeah here is what i;ve done " but firstly this is the mainly the board: GA-M57SLI-S4 REV 2.0 WITH SOLID CAPACITOR VRM. SINCE THERE IS
NO SOLID CAPACITORS AT GIGABYTE'S SITE PICTURE AT REV 2.0,
WELL HERE WE GO:
Later got a reply that the fault was the cpu bracket, reason for not powering up, but seriously it should power up even without the cpu socket dead and
still i think that it could be the problem at those big blocks or some defect at electrical passers around cpu area so my solution is that i received a dead mobo and got blamed for killing it what do you think great thanks..
I'd recommend using a known good power supply, a known good PC speaker, and a digital multimeter.
Search for the voltage regulators (usually have a small heatsink attached) and any voltage converters (usually close to some coils of wire wrapped around a ferrite "donut"). Look up their datasheets online, and check the voltages into and out of each of them. If the voltages are okay, listen for any beep codes when powering up. If that doesn't work, consider buying a "Post Card" - Power On Self Test Card. You plug it into the PCI or ISA sockets, and it will show you a numeric code to indicate how far the power up sequence has progressed. Retail for about $20 to $40 CDN.
