|Is my motherboard dead? - Computer has been working fine for 2 years (2 years ago I replaced a dead PSU and has worked fine since) |
Today I unplugged the computer from the wall socket and moved it to the other side of the room by sliding it gently
I then plugged it back in and switched it on with no boot, all the fans start up fast then within 10 seconds slow down but still spin, monitor displays "Analog power saving mode".
So i've tried a few different monitors all of which either had no signal or were on power saving mode. I removed and re-seated all RAM sticks, removed and re-seated the Graphics card, unplugged and replugged all cables.
I've tried to listen close enough for a beep from the mobo but I really cant tell if it beeps since the fans switch on extremely loud.
Also, today I bought a new PSU thinking that was the solution, it wasnt.
O/S: Windows Vista home premium (32bit)
Processor: Intel core 2 quad @2.4Ghz
RAM: 4GB (Upgraded from 2GB 6 months ago)
Graphics: ATI Radeon 5770
PSU: 700W CiT ATX
Can't really get any more specs since I cant switch it on to view them.
Edit: It seems like it is in a permanent low power state, i.e. on press of power button, it shuts down immediately unlike normally when it takes a few minutes.
