I've had my computer running fine for a while, then all of a sudden it stopped turning on. All of the LED lights on the Mobo is off, except the ready to power on one (I believe it's the LED_5SB). Manual says the D1 and D2 LED's being off reads as a CPU/chipset error...this just happened one day when I went to turn it on. Any solutions?

The fans and indicators working for a sec would normally mean that your power supply is Ok. This flash of current must trigger a switch in the mobo to start the boot process. This is not happening. The RAM is a principal player here if it does not connect the memory to the processor nothing will happen. Assuming the RAM is correct and has worked faultlessly before, remove and clean the teeth with an eraser. This prob can also be caused by the VGA card not connecting. Usually alarms sound if your mobo speaker is connected but that depends on each mobo. These are basic steps that usually start machines that have been inactive for a time or have recently been exposed to high humidity. There could be other faults...............
hi, i had a similar issue some time ago, dependng on your hardware i would suggest you look into a psu tester, or swap it out for a friend's psu, i assume you've ripped everything apart and put it back together to see if some dust was shorting somewhere, is it related to heat maybe, expansion of cracking can sometimes occur in computers that have gotten hot in the past, especially in the circuitry behind the cpu.
I have built quite a few PCs and I have often found the same problem when trying to boot for the first time. An old trick that might help is to repeatedly energize then drain the PC electricity. Do this by plugging in the PC momentarily then unplugging it then immediately pressing the power button on the PC while there is no power hooked up. Do this several times over and over again in quick succession. Finally turning on the PC with the power connected. If the power supply on the PC has a switch on it you may use that instead of actually plugging and unplugging. Also you might try pressing and holding down the "ins" or "insert" key while powering on the PC. Hope this helps.
this problem is due overheating, and you say yo have a C2D with this mobo.... at intel site it said that this mobo works fine with intel P4, Pentium Duo an Celeron but not C2D. Its true that you have 800Mhz FSB and it will detect the micropro.... and work fine but the C2D will overheat the mobo for its need of energy and overheat it so it start restarting. I dont know how much that mobo is going to last but start installing all cooler you can....the mission is to cool down that mobo and micro...
Did you try to unplug all AC Power; remove internal surface battery; and then jumper the 'reset' pins from 1-2 to 2-3 ?
Leave in this state for about 5 minutes- then replace battery; re-jumper back to pins 1-2- replace AC power cord.
Sometimes wiping out the BIOS setup information and restarting/re-setting it up will do the trick!
