Desktop Won't POST - Am I screwed? I think I am . . .
So . . . . haven't came to these forums in a long time but as the thread title says . . . My desktop won't POST at all.
I've been putting it into Sleep Mode for months instead of actually turning it off if that has anything to do with it. The diagnostics that I have completely already are as follows -
- I've done a barebones startup (Only Video Card - 2 different ones, motherboard, RAM and CPU)
- I've swapped GPU's out
- I've disconnected all peripherals(keyboard, mouse, printer, ethernet, any and all other usb devices)
- I tested RAM sticks (which I knew wheren't the problem since the ones I own have RAM activity LED's which where moving - extremely slowly) - I only have 2 2GB sticks of DDR3 and I tested each separately which did not work.
- I've disconnected all excess power consuming units (HHD's, Fans, DVD Drive, Lights all disconnected)
I don't have a PSU Tester but I believe my neighbor has one which i'm going to ask to borrow later on today. I've limited the problems to either the Motherboard or the Power Supply. Am I correct in my assumptions and are there any other diagnostics that I can attempt that may fix my POST problem . . . (BTW - POST problem = No initial Beep code at computer start up and no display on the monitor.)
