My fiancee's machine decided this weekend to not power up anymore, but I've been out of the repair business for some time. The machine does not reach POST, and the fans won't even spin or twitch.
Process so far:
- Disconnect all drives - no change
- Remove all cards - no change
- Remove RAM - no change
- Remove CPU - no change
- Replace power supply with known-good - no change
Is there really anything else to do before ordering a new motherboard? It used to be that a motherboard would give some POST beeps with nothing at all installed (would beep for no CPU or no RAM). I'll try the note in the sticky post to completely clear out the CMOS but at this point I'm not expecting anything to come out of this thing.
