Not sure if this is the right section, but I'll keep it short.
6/10/2011: I was rendering an Adobe After Effects file, my computer crashed and will not turn on. The front lights were blinking gradually. I unplugged the main power cable, cleaned the entire computer, switched RAM around, replaced a new power supply. BUT the computer still did not turn on. When I press the power buttons, nothing happen at all. The lights flash 0.2 seconds like it's going to turn on but it just turns off immediately. Absolutely nothing occurs at all.
So I replaced the motherboard with another of the same model and everything works perfectly.
7/06/2011: I was rendering an Adobe After Effects file, my computer crashed
and will not turn on. It was pretty much exactly like the previous incident with the red light blinking gradually. I don't want to just replace the motherboard again and not know what really happened. Also, this motherboard model is discontinued.
A theory that I have is that some surge might have taken out the processor. But if you think about it, both times the same thing happened during the same event of rendering an After Effects file. If the first time was a surge, then my processor would have NOT worked when I replaced the motherboard.
I really need help, does anybody have any clue as to why it happened again? Or if you have any fixes and solutions, please please let me know.
