I have a Gigabyte MA790X-UD4DP socket 3 board with AMD Phen II X2 550 cpu, 2 x 2 Gb Kingston ddr2 ram and ATI 4750 1gb card and OcZ modstream power supply, all less than 12mth old. Suddenly went black screen on me and now won't boot up. Won't even get to bios and there are no warning beeps or signs it is initiating boot sequence.
Can hear and see fans for power supply, cooling, and Vid card working so assume power supply ok. Seems to me that motherboard is fried but have been told it could be memory or power supply. As I don't have spares to try I'm at a loss as to what to try.
Any help greatly appreciated. Even though every component was bought from same place and it has worked without fault for 8 mths indicating I assembled it correctly, I have been asked to pay a minimum $80 fee to trace the fault with no prospect of return once the faulty part is found - seems harsh to me as you are told all the bits are covered by wty when you buy them
