Further to the reply, can you please inform me to whether the motherboard could be ruined from the short? if I put washers in between the motherboard and case, is there any chance of the motherboard working after it has shorted.
Actualy I have a raidmax smildon case, with the same problem. I thought it was a motherboard issue, as I plugged in my headphones and the PC powered down. The power supply was sending power to the motherboard, I got an RMA for the motherboard, assuming it had shorted, purchased a MSI K9A2 platinum and the box still wouldn't power on, luckily the new motherboard had a power and a reset button on the board. I hit the power button and voila, power. So all signs point to crappy switch. Contacting Raidmax is my next step.
It's a grounding issue. quiet common for antec chassis. what i would recommend is to take the system (motherboard, video card, power supply..etc) out of the antec chassis and run it to see if it boots up okay. when you are putting everything back into the chassis, make sure the standoffs are where they are supposed to be. if not, the chassis might not be grounded properly, get them to replace the chassis if you can find their support.
It's not a short in that sense. It's just preventing thee motherboard from starting. I had the same issue a long time ago when building a pc. Once it's seated properly, it should turn on...unless like I said previously, there is something wrong with motherboard all together.

Hi, Do this motherboard beeping sound code first. 1. No beepsmeans short, no power and loose M.B. peripherals(VGA). (need to change Motherboard). 2. One beepmeans everything is working good. 3. Two beeps means CMOS error (need change bios rom ic). 4. Continuous beeps means memory not detected(try to clean slot and change memory). 5. One long beep, two short beeps means Videocard external loose or defective parts.
I hope this information will be helpful to you. Regards
Do this beeping code for motherboard troubleshooting.
First disconnect all memory,external video card, etc only motherboard and power supply.
Then power on if you hear continuous beeping means the motherboard working good.
Please do this beeping code troubleshooting.
No beeping meansShort, No power,
Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals.
One beeping means Everything is
normal and Computer posted fine.
Two beeping means POST/CMOS Error.One Long Beep,
One Short Beep means Motherboard
Problem. One Long Beep,
Two Short Beeps means Video Problem. One Long Beep,
Three Short Beeps means Video problem. Repeated Long
Beeps means memory error. Continuous Hi-Lo
Beeps means CPU Overheating.
First thing to check would be to disconnect all of the speaker wiring from the back, then turn the amp on, if it stays on, you need to check all speakers and all wiring for shorts. If it still shuts down, there is an internal problem and would need to be serviced. That being the case, I would strongly suggest that you meter out all wiring for shorts and check all connections at speakers, and the speakers themselves for problems prior to re-installation of the amp. It is a very well built product! Chances are good that it is a wiring issue, one little braid of wire touching another, can ruin a day! If you need more detailed help troubleshooting beyond this, post a comment/reply, and I can help you further. Hope this helps.
Call for James Bond. How do you expect anyone to reply when you don't give any information about the make model circumstances etc etc I hope I have been of help but please do hesitate to ask if you have any further questions as your question was badly presented.
Hi just read your posting.Now the noise you heard was probably your motor controller shorting out or your pump shorted out. Did you check the power point with a small appliance to see if it has power?What is the model number of your machine?It is located on a sticker at the back of the machine .Please reply with additional information and I can help you further.
I hate giving a bad diagnosis as I am afraid that you will not respond to the post well or give me a poor rating. But never the less, I will give you the information that you have requested. 5 beeps whether you have an AMI or Phoenix BIOS means that there is a CPU error. That does not mean that the processor is dead, you may be able to reseat the processor in the socket and get the computer back up and running. I am just telling it like it is, 5 beeps means CPU error. I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If I have helped you, please help me, and rate this suggestion. If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further. Thanks for using FixYa asnowman
The beep codes below may help you identify the possible computer problems. However, they are only for reference purposes. The situations might differ from case to case. gAMI BIOS Beep Codes *Computer gives 1 short beep when system boots successfully. *Except for beep code 8, these codes are always fatal. 1 beep Refresh failure 2 beeps Parity error 3 beeps Base 64K memory failure 4 beeps Timer not operational 5 beeps Processor error 6 beeps 8042 - gate A20 failure 7 beeps Processor exception interrupt error 8 beeps Display memory read/write failure 9 beeps ROM checksum error 10 beeps CMOS shutdown register read/write error 11 beeps Cache memory bad g AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error
Not sure how u shorted it out installing ram. Theres only 1 way the put it in and there should have been NO power on the board at the time. AND I'd like to know how you think the board is shorted out. What is happening? It's a very rare occurrence and there are other easy fix issues that might make a person think the board is fried. Let me know your answers to these questions so I can help further.
The main cause behind this problem is :-
1) RAM JAM
2) HDD is taking extra power from SMPS
3) Motherboard faulty Capacitors / ICs
Try following :0-
step 1) Remove CMOS Battery (3V battery) + RAM
and now try to check whether Fan shows same symptoms or not
Step 2) if results of above step is fail then try to remove HDD powersuppy + CD/DVD power supply + Floppy Power supply (in short provide power to only motherboard) and now start the system.
If the result are same
3) then look for any swollen capacitors on motherboard, if they are then you need to replace them.
4) If no capacitor is swollen then check for every bigger IC on motherboard for whether it got excessive heated or not. If yes then you need to do serious operations on your motherboard .
Please not here i have used the word EXCESSIVE HEATED. and noth the normal heated
