Question about ASUS A7V8X Motherboard
i tried to turn my pc on this morning, there was a smell of burning, i check this out and found the smell coming from the PSU.
i have tried a new PSU, power led is on, hdd and power light on constant, nothing happens, the mb power led is soild green, agp led is off, all that happens is the CPU fan runs, and nothing else, no display, no post, no beeps.
no burn marks on the motherboard or PSU, removed the video card, powered on no beep, just CPU fan running and hdd and power led on constant.
i have cleared the comms by pulling out battery and doing the jumper free and jumper mode and still nothing.
i have tried to post with only the processor attached, i get no beeps.
please can someone tell me if it is likly to be mb or CPU
When a power supply goes out the way yours did, it's going to fry the MB 99% of the time. So you're going to need a new MB. It's possible that you CPU is ok, but that could also go too. I would replace the MB first, then the CPU if that doesn't work.
