Question about Biostar iDEQ 210M Barebone
My iDEQ 210m has powered up once to the bios screen and now noting get yellow led on front but not even any movment from fans
I assume you have reseated (unplugged and re-plugged) all power connectors. Try this, very carefully! Look at the power connector for the motherboard: you'll see there is a green cable (pin 14 IIRC) with a black one either side of it. Get a paper clip, straighten it and being *very* careful not to let it touch anything else, short the green cable to one of the black ones (do this with a deliberate movement - you don't want it to keep making momentary contact). The power supply should start up. If you're lucky, you'll see the BIOS screen come up; remove the paper clip (again, a quick, deliberate action). If your luck holds the power will stay on and the machine will behave normally after that. If either the BIOS screen does not appear or removing the paper clip causes the power to go off again then I'm afraid you've run out of luck and the motherboard has a fault, unfortunately not uncommon.
