Customer returned the whole box to me, the system will not power on. He did not do anything to the box, was running fine with no problems. I unplugged the small ATX 12v pwer from the MB and powered the computer on and the power supply fan turns on but the CPU fan does not. When I plug the 112v ATX power back in the power supply fan does not run.

I hope I have accurately described my issue, please help. Is it Power supply? Motherboard fried?

  1. Don't you have a spare power supply to test it with?

  2. I do not
  3. Seems to me a small business requires some investment in overhead/equipment.

    Was also wondering why you cannot use the powersupply of the device you are writing this post on to test?

    Have some friends who can help out in a pinch?

    Run out and buy a power supply? Like $20-$40

  4. Possibly it is the mobo whose circuit has been damaged.U`d better send it to the mamufacture who may be facing the problem experienced.
  5. Try the board out of the case, with only the bare minimum to post. Your customer may have jarred/droped/hit the case, and knocked something out of place. He also may have fiddled with something.
  6. Flinx,

    Regardless of my circumstances I do not have a power supply where I am at at the moment. Staying at a friends house due to some speed bumps in the road of life. I think I will send the board back to the Mfg. I was hoping to to find solution before sending it out for RMA.
