Question about Foxconn 760GXK8MC-S Motherboard
I have put together a brand new motherboard, RAM and Sempron processor. I connected an ATX power supply and tried to boot the board by touching the power button pins together. The fan came on but I got no video output. I checked the power supply and realised that I did not have the 12V power supply connected for the CPU. I connected this and tried to boot the board again. This time the fan started for about a second then stopped. After a couple more attempts to boot the board disaster struck as a surface mounted chip began to fry. This chip is a 5 pin device, a few mm in size and is located close to Q59 and Q65. It is the only one of its kind on the board. Have you any idea what has caused this chip to destruct and also what the chip is so that I can attempt to obtain a new one and replace it?
It's possible that while booting your motherboard without the 12V power connected you physically damaged some components which eventually lead to the chip burning up. However, it is quite possible that this motherboard was defective as Foxconn has discontinued it. I would recommend RMA'ing (return merchandise authorization) the motherboard back to Foxconn. While no one wants to wait for shipping it is probably your best bet. Even if you order the chip that has been damaged, and can properly solder it back in place, there will most likely be other physical damage that is not visible to the eye. I would recommend another motherboard, and Foxconn has quality mobo's for around $50. Try visiting www.newegg.com. Hope this helps :)
