I woke up this morning to my computer being off (i leave it running usually). I tried to turn it back on but got no response. The lights are still on the motherboard and on the audio card but the fans don't start up when i hit the power button. I haven't OC'd at all, and my system has always been running quite cool. I really need my comp back for homework and school stuff, i'm toast without it.
I'm really hoping the motherboard isn't fried, even though that's what my instincts are telling me, the onboard reset and power button LED's are on when the PSU is getting power but i don't know if that means anything.
First, turn off the PSU (switch on the back) then pop out the CMOS battery carefully and wait 30 or more second before putting it back in. This should restore all factory default settings in the BIOS. Second, try pulling out components one at a time and try to post the system after each one. Third, get back to us with your results for far .
i'm starting to think it might be what skyllz said as well. I've re-seated the cpu, removed the harddrive, graphics card, 1 of my sticks of memory and it's the exact same problem. Also, there are these other little LED's on the Rampage formula that are supposed to warn you when the temps get too hot on certain components, these LED's will flash on and then flash off right away.
I also have an LED poster that says CPU INIT and never gets to anywhere passed that point. If my poster is getting a message from the motherboard, can i rule out a fried MB? Because that's my main concern here, i think my PSU is still under warranty with OCZ as i only built this thing 3 months ago.
