Hi all,

I have an E5400 in a Gigabyte GA-73PVMS2H w/ 4GB RAM, and it's been running fine for at least 6-12 months. Last night, I pulled it out to put in a new mobo, CPU and RAM, but had to abort due to a hardware problem. I put the original parts back in, and while the computer turns on, I get no video output, and no POST. I've already tried reseating the RAM and CPU and clearing the CMOS, and my power supply tester says it's good. I do notice that the power supply's fans turn on immediately when power is applied, and the CPU fan come on right after clearing the CMOS, but I don't think it does on subsequent power-ups. I'm also unable to shut it off by holding in the power button. I know it's not a short with the case, as the same thing happens if I power on with the mobo lifted out of the case. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have a discrete graphics card? Have you tried to use the on-board graphics? Other than that only possibility I can see is you might have damaged your motherboard while removing it from the case since for months it's been running fine until that night you removed them and placed them back again.

I tried with both dedicated graphics and on-board video, same result. I opened a case w/ Gigabyte, but they're closed for the new year, so I'll have to wait a couple of days for their reply. But I'm open to any other suggestions.
