Cord and fans from Norton arrived today, thanks again my friend!
Guys, 99.9% sure my ASUS P8P67 took a dump. We had a storm today and I know for a fact the power flashed because both rigs had restarted. However, LAN port is not working anymore and the USB's are not functioning properly.
Therefore I'm looking for a S1155 board and/or a FX8120/8150 CPU. Either I replace the board, or I get a CPU for my AM3+ board and get that one running. Either way, if you have either or, or both let me know. Thank you.
Is the board under warranty?
Could always call ASUS and explain what happened? Maybe they'll be in a good mood and send you out a new mobo.
If not I would guess new mobo time. I'll see if we have anything at work that would work for you.
I'm not even the original owner. . Let me know if you find anything.
I fear that every time it rains here. Storms are much diff here then in the big city. You don't have all the tall buildings to tone the sound down. When it thunders, o my gosh I jump lol.
Sucks that happened. All the best to your quest to get up and running again soon.
Geeks has refurbished 1155 boards in the $50-60 range:
Woah, something like this for $70 is a steal!
You can always try to rma it. I was able to rma a board I got off here without issue. You just need to check the date of the board thats printed on the pci slot sticker. If it's less then 3 yrs you just may be in luck. Oh And I wasn't the original owner either, actually I was like 3rd or so owner of it. They didn't even ask.
The Asus 970 Evo I got from there few weeks ago said it came with only an I/O shield but I ended up with the I/O shield, 2 SATA cables, driver disc, and the front panel connector doodad.
*note- if you need the I/O shield, check the description... some boards come w/o them.
Thanks for the links guys. I'll take a look with more time later. Going to see what other options become available.
You might also shut the system down, unplug it, reset the bios, and even remove the battery and then try booting the system back up. I probably will not help, but there is a possibility it could CP.
If you need help clocking that thing just ask me or Dave. We know that board very very well.
I think the problem I'm having has to do with the "Realtek Deep Sleep Mode" I'm letting it sit overnight with the RAM out and the battery as well. Ill let you guys know how it goes.
Never heard of that, but hopefully you get it fixed
Still don't work.
Does anyone have a spare low end PCIe GPU (ie GT210 or AMD equiv) that they could either sell or let me use? I have this G530/H61 combo I am trying to get up (extreme low power Cruncher), but I need a GPU to get it configured to use the G530's integrated GPU.
I attempted trying to change it in the BIOS blind but no luck. I don't believe its booting into the BIOS at all without a GPU (5 beep POST = no GPU detected).
Sorry, I had three 8400GSs but I just sent them all to Norton
I can send one of them out to theonedub.... the third one was for a future rig that isn't even planned out yet so you can hang onto the card for a little while
Should have them by the weekend and can put one in the mail by Saturday.. Monday at the latest.
Drop me a PM if interested
How can I join this CrunchersHelping Crunchers?
If you're a contributing member of the TPU WCG team and need (usually small/cheap) parts to fix your rig and get it crunching-ready again (or are trying to build a new rig), you can post here what you need. Likewise, if you have spare parts you'd be willing to offer for free/cheap, you can do that as well.
Ok, how do I join the TPU WCG team? I only have like 1-3 spare parts.

Norton has me taken care of on the GPU
