Question about EliteGroup P4M800PRO-M Motherboard
Fuse in power supply okay. Checked pushbutton leads at m-board connection, pushbutton makes when pushed. Does this mean I have a m-board problem AFTER LOADING WINDOWS HALFWAY COMPUTER JUST DIED AND WONT BOOT UP
KingPin, is there any sign of life at all? Any lights, whiring, harddisk spinning?? Is there an LED (small light) visible on the motherboard when the power is on???
If nothing, certainly a power problem - but where. While you have the case open looking for the lit LED on the mobo, can you see any capacitors, the little cylinder-type components on the mobo circuit board that look like little batteries standing up, there'll be about half a dozen of them, that look like they may be bloated, or like a coke can left in the freezer about to explode. Do any of these capacitors look like they could be oozing goo, maybe a yellowish rusting liquid. If any do, this is not good.
If none of that applies the next step is to check your power supply. I would not suggest an amateur to do this over a step-by-step chat as it involves shorting out points and if the system is live, the wrong points shorted, well, guess you'd know what could happen (not good). The power supply is not easy to diagnos for errors, they're tricky buggers that can test well for voltage but once a load is put on them they roll over and play dead. Get an expert to test your power supply, very simple task of they plugging in a PSU tester (or borrow one, or buy one).
