    s'all good, things happen even when you'd swear they shouldn't (believe me, the last few months on my end have been absolute tripe) . . . just a matter of learning to roll with the punches - it's the trials that shape us, not our successes.

    but, I know what it's like losing your rig for long periods of time here as well (went 2.5 years :twitch:); it's no issue though, I'll ask around. Like I said, can't guarantee or make any promises, but if I can turn one up I'm more than glad to help ya out :toast:



    (another thought - you could abduct another family member's rig in the middle of the night, swap out all the components, and see how long you can get away with it :laugh:)

    Just curious, but is there anything in the PCI slots? I had something like this happen before and a PCI slot was only making partial contact, putting the whole system on the fritz. Symptoms just like this, no video, but power.

    @the PCI slot comments: I'm pretty sure he already said he tried booting with bare minimum multiple times.

    @Solaris: EVGA still hasn't updated with any form of confirmation that they received the board :(.

    Are you 100% sure the pins on the cpu socket are 100% straight? This happened to my gf's board just recently and I noticed a couple bent pins.

    Hey sol try moving the Jumper that clears CMOS and booting with it in another postion. Also I assume you allready cleared the BIOS.

    The Clear CMOS jumper on my Foxconn was in the wrong postion in my Mobo manual and my board wouldnt post because the jumper was in the clear CMOS position and I thought it was in the right position.

    idk it was a personal sale so we will see

    nope booted with bare minimums

    :(

    its cool about EVGA im just glad your still willing to help me :) the pins are straight 100% i spent half an hour in the bed 1 day with the light behind me looking at them and i hit my self in the eye with the mobo when i swivled it around.

    ya i figured that iv booted with the cmos jumper in both positions pin 2-3 and 1-2 and same :(

    yup but nothing ever engages my HDD's spin up my fans spin up you know that uncontrolled spin before the mobo's PM controll and power regulation kicks in? thats what happens they just sit their and spin full blast but nothing ever engages the HDD's never boot and even without them connected the fans never spin down proc never gets hot mem never gets warm
  17. wolf2009 Guest

    dead mobo, had that happen to me fortunately it was a asus p4c-800 deluxe socket 478 mobo

    fans would keep spinning, no boot sounds .

    its the board dude

    rest it and yourself. stop taking tension over lost hardware, its a part of enthusiasts life, learn to take it in stride from this incident.

    you have done all you can, now its time to let it go and say bye

    Hey Sol I know its a long shot here, but are you adding power to the 4 pin molex by the ram slots also?

    TPU thank you all i appreciate the responses ideas and help. I just wanted to let you know that i have just been contacted by someone on the forums who wishes to be anonymous this person basically forced me into giving them a link of a mobo i was intrested in if i had the money....this person then bought the mobo for me. I cannot tell you how gratefull i am that the TPU community has persons in it that would do this for someone in need and though i didnt ask for it and was slightely embarassed at the offer i wish to thank all of you and that person VERY MUCH for your help and ideas you have no idea how proud i am to say that i am part of this community. This post isnt just for that person but for all of those who helped me it was absolutely remarkable that a plea for help turned into a 3 page thread in like an hour and a half..thank you TPU and i appreciate it more than you know. The board has been surprisingly overnighted to me and i will be receiving it soon..
