Our 1 y/o son toppled over our 1.5 y/o home-built computer and now it is kaput. All the fans start up, HD powers up, DVD opens/closes, but system doesn't boot (no beeps), keyboard lights do not toggle on/off, no video.
I have checked for loose/missing jumpers. I have reseated cards.

Here is the link to buy a new replacement chipset fan: http://estore.asus.com/shop/category.asp?catid=131
You'll need to become a member & sign into Asus to order a new chipset fan or you can call Asus directly. I know there are four black pins with tiny springs on the back side of the board under the fan. Its been so long since I changed one of these. It may be best to wait until the new one comes in before removing the bad one. Another option would be to call Asus tech at 1-812-282-2787 IL M-F 8-5:00PM EST and ask for "How to remove fan" from a tech.
Or you can buy a better chipset fan that will last longer & cool far greater than Asus fan.

hi put some exhaust fans in the case see if this will help youi had this happen to me a few times add fans and als wellremember you still have your chip set on your mother board they do not have fans and need to be cooled too
The ATX power supply needs to have pin16(PS_On#) to be connected to COM for it to work.
When you press the power switch on the front panel of the computer, you are essentially making this connection.
Check that the cable from the power supply to the motherboard is making good connection.
You can verify operation of the power supply by shorting Pin16 to pin17 on the powersupply output, with a paper clip. Pin16 is usually a green wire and 17 is black.
Hope this helps.
