Question about EliteGroup 741GX-M Motherboard
I just tried to move my GQ machine (Fedora 5) with 741GX-M to a UPS (APC 350 ES). When I tried to power it up, it failed. The CPU and power supply fans spin for about 2-3 seconds then power stops. I see the power light come on to the CD-ROM and possibly the HD (front of bezel). There are no beeps. If I try this a few times in a row, after a couple of tries, the fans do not even try to spin up. I've tried removing the floppy and CD drives from the power chain, and tried removing the memory modules one at a time, but no changes. Is this a PSU failure or a motherboard failure? I don't have another ATX power supply to try.
I suspect that your PSU is faulty... can you buy another one? This is a fairly typical of a "Blown PSU" symptom to me... I would try replacing the PSU, and then connect ONLY the Motherboard, if OK, then Hard Drive, if OK then .. and so on.. I advise this as it MAY be something connected to the PSU that caused it to "Fault" but generally they just go Toes Up for no real reason.. other than PSU component failure.
