I know... "why didn't I use a surge protector?"
I KNOW! So, during hurricane Harvey we didn't have any lightning in my area but the power went out about 10 times in a few hours. It would return instantly and not my wife's pc wont boot. Nothing except the green light on the mobo.
I cannot see any visible shorts and I have already tried:
Switching the power supply
Switching the ram
Changing the cmos battery
Swapping the hard drive
Checked and re-applied thermal compound to the cpu
And took out the video card.
All to no avail. I am dreading that it could be the mobo, and maybe I just don't want to admit it. Any other ideas that I could try or something I could do to make a definitive diagnosis?
