Question about Intel Desktop Board D845PEBT2 Motherboard
Intel Motherboard D845PEBT2 with 250 GB segate harddrive.
I started a few days ago, when I got a thermal event warning and the computer shutdown. This happened sometime over night so the computer was off for a good two to five hours. After this the computer would go into the boot phase and the fans would churn a few seconds and then shut down.
I noticed that by removing the motherboard power, the fan and hard drive would run but as soon as the mother board power was connected the same thing of a few seconds of churn and then everything stopped.
If I kept the power button pressed on this would go on for little longer time but would not boot.
After multiple attempts over a period of 6 hours, it stated all by itself and ran for a few days and quite a few reboots.
Today, while processing a large/complex photoshop job, the computer shutdown by itself and then at each reboot, when WinXP Pro would start, it would shut down.
I started it in safemode and uninstalled a software (photoshop plugin installed by installer) to make sure that it was not causing any issues.
Now it would not boot at all. No fans, no hard drive, although the motherboard light and the LAN light comes on. But when I try to boot it, no results. Even removing the motherboard power cable does not help. Still no activity.
On strange thing I notice is that my room light dips (flickers) a bit when I turn the computer on. This could be a power supply issue. Or could the CPU have been damaged due to over heating? or a capacitor issue on the mother board. Are there any fuse in the power supply or motherboard that could have blown?
Any one here aware of this. CPU light on, LAN light on, but no boot activity, no harddrive activity, no fan come on and the room lights dip when the computer is turned on.
If it is a motherboard issue, can the motherboard be repaired? Replacing would be another uphill task with Win XP Pro.
Have you tried to boot into safe mode during the PC's post? Quicly tap the F8 key while booting. Choose LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION and press enter.
It sounds like a bad day for the motherboard. You actually unplugged and plugged in the motherboard while it was in operation. Hopefully you didnt fry it, but chances are rather high. Go to Newegg.com, or a local PC reapir store in town and buy at least a new, not used, 350w PSU(power supply unit).
Before you do anything else, buy a few cans of commpressed air and clean the inside out. Dust is a PC's worst nightmare.
Try these things and see what happens. But never ever unplug the board power while it is running, or in your case, trying to.

If you computer over heated, this could have caused the board or power supply to short. I would first start by trying a new power supply unit (since this is cheapest of the options). If that does not work then try replacing the motherboard and/or processor. Since you not getting any power, my guess is motherboard or power supply unit.
