Question about Foxconn G41MXE Motherboard
If you are testing the motherboard by removing items plugged into it, remember to leave the CPU Heatsink on if the CPU is still in the socket otherwise the CPU will overheat in seconds or minutes and could be damaged.
If you power on the system, do the fans spin? such as the CPU heatsink fan? If no fans are spinning that are connected to the motherboard, see if the fan is spinning inside the power supply using a flashlight if needed. If not, try a known good power outlet or different plug on your surge bar or a new surge bar.
Even if the power supply fan is spinning, the power supply could be faulty. Borrow or buy one that matches the current wattage written on the side (ie: "output 350W")
