My System Specs


Basically, the system was shut down using the windows shut down button, when it is restarted all the fines light up, hdds spin, all the fans go, but the system will not post. He brings it into me and I strip it down. All the other components....cpu,ram,gpu,hdd all work fine in my s775 set up (even tested folding). Swap my stuff to his original motherboard....everything spins up, no post. So I suspected motherboard failure, the TP-850 psu powers on no problem
Have to be absolutely clear here.... was the motherboard out of the case? Did you disconnect all of the case connectors (USB / Firewire / reset / Power / etc...........) ?

How about peripherals like HDDs / ODDs / Fan controllers?
