i recently purchased a a8n32-SLI Deluxe motherboard and fit 3700+
Amd processor with 2x 512 Rams a 7300 PCI-express GPU and a 250GB SATA drive
it all worked good for a while then one day i switch it on it POSTs fine and at boot it freezes , once i reset the system does not start at all it doesnt even post , the CPU fan starts and the case fan also starts , but it does no POST no beeps nothing ... i have tried all components on another PC they all work fine the power is all well connected i have an Antec 500W PS and all connections are ok i have the 24 pin power connector so i dont need to connect the EZ_PLUG power
i have also cleared the CMOS e few times but that does not solve the problem
my guess is the bios might be damaged or something
doens anyone know how to restored it , or any other solution for this problem

> 512 MB of system memory http://www.directron.com/slireadymb.html heres a list of SLI ready motherboards. dont gotta use this site to buy it just giving you and idea of whats out there for you.
Seems from what i gathered that as long as its an SLI ready motherboard with a open 16x PCI-E compliant slot and of course its gotta fit your tower. Find out the form factor of the tower then also make sure that it fits the correct type of ram that you have and prosesser. Then u should be good to go!
The ATX power supply needs to have pin16(PS_On#) to be connected to COM for it to work.
When you press the power switch on the front panel of the computer, you are essentially making this connection.
Check that the cable from the power supply to the motherboard is making good connection.
You can verify operation of the power supply by shorting Pin16 to pin17 on the powersupply output, with a paper clip. Pin16 is usually a green wire and 17 is black.
Hope this helps.
