Default Help!


I need help with my computer.

I think my power supply or my motherboard died last friday.

The green light on the motherboard itself is on, I would think it is my motherboard died.

I have unplugged every cable and drive and chip form the motherboard. The PC still won't turn on.

Now my fan will not turn on.

Is there anyway that I can confirm it is my motherboard died?

If it is my motherboard, can I upgrade the mother board, but still leave everything else the same?

Basic I want to know if it is my motherboard died on me.

OK so when you push the power button it's like the computer isn't plugged in correct?

There is no test to use to see if it's your MOBO(motherboard). you can use logic and go through some trouple shooting and eliminate all other possible parts but thats about it.

What was the last thing you did before it "Died"?

CPU-Intel Pentium 4 630 3.0Ghz / 2MB Cache ~~OS Windows XP SP2
MOBO-Gigabyte 8I915P Duo Pro Intel Socket 775 (PCI-E)~~HDD-Western Digital 160GB(SATA)
PSU-Aspire 500W ATX~~RAM-1GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM (512x2 Dual Channel)
GPU-MSI GeForce 6600 GT(PCI Express)~~Monitor Viewsonic VA902B 19" 8ms~~ ATI TV Wonder Pro (TV Tuner)
~~Still to come~~: eVGA e-GeForce 7800 GT

Yeah, was there any power outage or power surge? Did you just pull the plug on your comp? Did you massively overheat or overclock the comp? what are the specs and how old is it or how long have you had it for? was it used or new when you got it? Do you have faulty socket breakers in your house? If you use another mobo and plug in the other parts and see if they work, that would pin point your problem....
Macbook Pro and Logitech z5500s. All you really need.
