So I had posted an earlier topic about this issue, linking it with the install of my SSD, which I no longer believe to be the case.
I had installed an SSD alongside my HDD. They were both installed fine, running the SSD as my boot drive, and I was about to reformat the HDD so I could use it for data storage. Before reformatting I thought I would just doublecheck everything worked on my SSD, so I powered down, disconnected from power, and and removed the HDD.
No problems on reboot. Everything worked fine, so I repeated the procedure and reconnected the HDD.
This time, there was no output from my MOBO`s VGA output. I waited a while thinking that it was perhaps loading, but after a few minutes it became apparent that there was no activity coming from the computer. I restarted and still no output.
I switched from VGA to DVID, nothing. Checked monitor, just fine. Removed the SSD, HDD, both, or neither, and no video output. Removed RAM, removed fans, everything but the CPU fan, nothing. Flashed CMOS and removed battery, nothing.
The fans come on when I push the button, but there are no beeps coming from the computer (perhaps no speaker on this MOBO?).
Now I am considering that either the PSU, CPU, or MOBO has fried somehow. I have a 300 watt power supply and was trying to run a SSD and HDD at the same time when the problem started. Previously, the SATA cable connected to the SSD was running a DVD-ROM unit.
Should I just give up and take it to a repair technician? I have no tools to test the PSU, and no conclusive evidence that any of the three suspects are dead. I am at a loss as to what I can do here.
Here is a list of my components:
ASUS M4A7B5T-M Motherboard
ISO-400 Power Supply
Seagate Barracuda 7200 500GB HDD
Intel 530 120GB SSD
2GB Corsair RAM
2GB Kingston RAM
Not sure what the CPU is :-/
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
