Question about Intel Motherboard
I am working on a generic computer which appears to have a damaged motherboard? When you switch the computer on the cpu and psu fans work, but it does not perform the POST or boot into Windows. There are no POST bleeps or signals to the monitor. I have tried inserting a VGA card, instead of using the onboard graphics card and have connected the monitor to it, but nothing appears on the screen in both these scenarios.
Any ideas what else I can try? Many thanks.
RAM would be my next guess. If the board is bad, so could the RAM be as well. Try swapping some known good RAM and see what happens. Or, at the least (if you have more than one stick), remove all but one and try again. Repeat until all sticks have been tried by themselves - you could just have one RAM stick causing the problem.
However, usually even if you have one bad stick, your system will still post, just show less memory. On the off-chance that all sticks are bad, then you might have similar symptoms.
Sounds like a bad mobo to me :(
