Question about Soltek SL-86SPE2 Motherboard
I have a Soltek SL-86SPE-L Motherboard which has a red LED on the board itself that lights up when the power supply is switched on but the computer wont start when I hit the power button.
I have tried swapping out the power supply and power switch and these both work OK. All components (AGP graphics card, sound card, modem, DVD drive, memory and hard drive) all work on my other(new) motherboard.
So I have decided that its a motherboard problem, this was expensively confirmed by a PC repair shop ($400 inc. new mobo).
My real problem is why the mobo's red LED still lights up but the computer won't? And to whom do I turn to in order to fix my motherboard?
All of the capacitors look OK to me (not domed or worse).
My only lead is a slightly louder static crack from my PC speakers on the last shutdown.
I gather that something got fried but I don't know where to look and is it even worth looking at all??
More of a technical problem I know but you probably know more than I!
Any advice would be much appreciated.
Well if ytou were already using ur PC then may be the last time ur PC was improperly shutdown. this can cause many mail functions.
now 1st thing to do is remove all the hardware and just leave the Processor, Memory & Graphic card if Any. then start the PC if its power on then Motherboard is OK if wont then Dis Assemble all The parts and then assemble again and try as mention above if it still wont work then may b ur chipset of the board friedd out that you cant visually say its fried.
