I have a older Gaming computer with a Asus 775 a Maximus forumula board
When it starts up it won't go past the logo screen.
Can't get it into bios, and USB are not recognized
I removed all USB devices and no luck
Any suggestions as to what else to look at?

I removed the hard drive and checked it and it works fine in another computer, all the data is there with no errors

Probably motherboard. Check that CPU socket pins are not bent.

The computer was working great, till it would not post on a power up

Being close to 10 years old I think you might be right,

Can't get it into bios

Try resetting the BIOS (your probably did already) but if you still can't, it's definitely the motherboard.

BTW....I was in Victoria once on vacation with my family; totally beautiful place, you are a lucky man. :cowboy:
