Finally a decent site that I have found that may help me.......(all others seemed shotty)
My problem lies here, I was using my computer late at night at which i left my desk (computer still on and running) to head to bed. I came back in the morning and noticed it off, so i pushed the power button to start it and it does even flicker. The only thing that shows a sign of life is a little green standby light in the corner of my computer.
I brought my PC down to a Barebone of: Asus K8V-SE Socket 754 with an Athlon 64 3200+ CPU. A stick of 256 mb ram (dont know the brand).
I havent even included my graphix card because even with the mobo and CPU, PS, and RAM hooked in, it wont even give me a beep.
Now i would just replace the mobo as i am still convered by waranty, but i am intrigued to know why the stand-by light is on when i turn on the PSU. This means that the PSU is giving power and that the MOBO is getting power. I have cleared the heatsink and fan of all depris and even tried to spin it, then hit power (kind of like an old airplane prop effect) with no prevail. I doubt its shorted because the board is mounted to the chasis by these plastic screws that the board somewhat snapps onto (but not in a way it would damage the board).
and why now, what would cause my computer after a years worth of use, decide one night that it should turn itself off and never turn on again.
