OK.... So I've been working on a HP Pavilion DV6324us that won't startup.
Toshiba 120GB IDE HDD
1GB DDR2 Memory
Integrated Video
AMD Turion 64 X2 1.6GHz


Symptoms: When the power button is depressed, the system led's light up, HDD spins up then down and after a few seconds the CPU fan will spin up then down. There is no video, no POST.... it will continue doing this until shut down. The CPU fan spins up about every 45 seconds.

After replacing the motherboard... The system turned on just fine. Worked great for about a week and a half. Then it all started happening again.... The exact same symptoms.

I have replaced the MOBO, CPU and RAM. Tried turning it on.... no difference...same symptoms.
I stripped it down and took the Mobo out of the chassis and connected only what needed to be to get it to turn on. No difference with only the LCD and button panel plugged into the motherboard. I did this thinking that the mobo could be shorting to something in the chassis. But still..... nothing has changed..... I have no idea which way to go with this anymore....any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Welcome to Bleeping for one..

Also for starters. You've mentioned everything but the power supply box. Have you considered testing a different one?

Perhaps a obvious suggestion, but you have tried to reset the MB bios?

And you're not getting any video display?
