Hello everyone.
I was assign a job to replaces a Motherboard by ComputerRepair.com
It is a Gate 554GE 540HT P4 3.2Ghz-!GB memory mobo. It was a new mobo. I install everything just the way it was suppose to go. when I turn on the power nothing happen. Not even a post or beeps. just a light on the case switch.
Any help would be great. The end user siad that I was the fourth Tech out to his house and he is tire of a $2000 computer only working for 5 month.
So I guess the job it lost. I just hate not knowing why it didn't work.

From personal experience I can say it sounds like a power problem. A shout circuit or a PSU that isn't powerful enough.

Bad Ram or a short between the motherboard and the case as Mr Alpha says will do that too.
