Question about Shuttle K45 Intel based barebone system Motherboard
My Shuttle K45 recently stopped working (fan runs, no power or drive light, no video). I tried replacing the power supply & the CPU (socket 775 Intel Celeron), but so far nothing has changed. I had read in a post elsewhere where someone had this problem & installed a PCI video card which resolved the problem- tried that, still no luck. At this point I am suspecting that I will have to replace the entire motherboard, but it is hard to find a site online that sells replacement motherboards. I hadn't tried Shuttle directly as I didn't see where they sold these in prior visits there. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated-
Thanks in advance,
There may just be a short in your board of a device connected to your board as u said the previous problem was solved by video card as it was because the video card was faulty which was giving the problem!!
so before going in for a new board try to check each and every part separately u might find the faulty part or then it may be the boards problem!!
because if without checking all the devices if u get a new board and then u find the problem still and because of just some device then it will be a waste!!!
so try this, reply and rate me!

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your "((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE))" make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause this problem
follow the troubleshooting procedure a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every device and to have an end to be able work properly
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working hope this helps also it could be a dirty computer clean all of the dust from your computer you could use a vacuum cleaner but whatever you use make absolutely sure there is no moisture gets to anything in your computer
also check the Cmos battery and computer ram make sure they are securely seated
hope this helps
