I'm using a custom built PC I built a few years ago.
The mobo is an Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3, and the PSU is an OCZ Z series 850W, don't think anything else is going to be relevant.
Since a recent power cut, my computer hasn't been able to fully boot. It receives power fine, I think - when I hit the power button, all the fans start up and the lights come on. But then the boot_device_led stays on (im guessing by boot device it means BIOS?), and it gets no further - nothing on screen at all.
I have actually been able to get it to boot a few times using the jumper so it doesn't seem like this problem is totally fatal, but obviously this isn't a permanent solution, and I've been trying to do the same thing today and no joy.
I've replaced the CMOS battery on a whim, and that made no difference.
So basically, unless there's something I haven't tried, it seems like there's something wrong with the motherboard, specifically the boot device. Is there anything I can do? Or am I going to have to splash out on a new motherboard. It's pretty old anyway so it's not the end of the world, but it is frustrating. Alternatively, could there be something else going wrong here that I'm missing?
I'm going to be surge protecting my computer from now on of course.
Thanks a lot for your help
