Mainboard dead i need super help to prove wrong the people who blame it on me istead of agreeing..
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Yeah I got the same problem. My pull cord broke in the first season. On my own once the plastic cover is removed, 4 phillips screws, the cord housing is secured by 3 10mm nuts. Remove them and lift out the housing. On my own unit the spring had also slipped out of the mount on the shaft securing the assembly (another 10mm socket nut will loosen that). I used a Briggs and Stratton cord from another (truly dead) mower and have had no problems since then. I am not sure why folks are giving you spark plug settings when you are asking about the cord. :)
If it shows something when you start it .. like the devices or if it let you goto BIOSA ..it means it is something wrong with the video card settings ..and in this case you will have to reinstall it ..or see if the display 1 is not disabled..By pressing Fn + f 4 or F5 or whatever key it has the monitor sign on it .. If this do not work ..you will have to see if it is the display to blame or the inverter for it ..If it is the back light inverter ..it will show shadows in bright light .....but if is the display will be completely dead..In this case open it and see if it is the wire contact with the board to blame ...and if this is no case..you have to change the display .. There can be a case of a dead video card ..to prove that ..use a external monitor and if the card is dead and the display has no blame ..will not work with the external monitor ..but if works ..than is the lcd display to blame ..and there is nothing to do but changing it ...This is a easy job to do if you have the spare p[art ...Just remove the hinges cover..and all the hidden screws on the edge of the display ..(hidden with round plastic pieces ) here is a link to make an ides.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_UyCQh6pys
Yeah....as long as you have the proper tools.....and a workshop manual to guide you.....many things can go wrong with replacing spark plugs, but as lng as you take some care and don't rush it, it can be done diy
Never put the CD on IDE 1
The IDE hard drive should always be alone on the first IDE channel.
CD-ROM drives can slow down the transfer rates and cause other screwups, and so they should always be on IDE2 or as high as possible (Add in Cards)
