I'm making no progress. About a month ago I had a power outage and since then my new computer won't turn on. I built it myself (did everything correctly) and it worked for a good 5 months, until the outage. I had corresponded with the MoBo manufacturer and they said it was likely a problem with the board. So, after getting the replacement board and hooking everything back up it still won't turn on. I know it's not the PSU, I tested it in the machine I am on, and I know it's not the case...I reassembled everything in a different case. So, I'm back to square one.
The LED's on the board light up, so I know the board is getting power, and when I plug the keyboard in, the LED's on it light up, as well as the mouse. I have tried removing everything but the CPU/fan, video card (no onboard), and RAM, but I don't get even as much as a BIOS beep, and the CPU fan won't spin. I'm hoping the outage didn't nuke the CPU.
Can anyone lend a hand? Thanks in advance!
I am running Windows XP Home, Asus A8N-SLI Premium board, AMD Athlon X2 4400+ with stock heatsink/fan
