I can't find this information anywhere so.. Sorry if this is a waste of time

How do motherboards fail? My friend tells me that if my motherboard were damaged that fans wouldn't spin on startup, and that the monitor and devices not responding is either RAM or CPU issue, but is it possible to damage a slot or one section without disrupting the fans?

I am having this issue, but I believe it is due to my CPU's damaged pins which I just discovered. I replaced my RAM after moderate testing with Memtest+ (which all passed) because the machine stopped completely turning on. You can find my original post here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/602535/windows-81-bsod/

Thanks!

How do motherboards fail?

> First and main reason is failed capacitors; Google it, there is a lot of info posted.

> Next most common reason is one of the ports failed, eg: one memory slot goes bad, or one of the PCI slots gets borky, etc.

> A failure with one of the chips soldered in, or one of the traces. Almost impossible to find or fix.
