Hi all -

Ok heres the spec of my rig;


E6600 Core 2 Duo

NVidia 7600GT

2 xgb Corsair Matched pairs

500gb RAID SATA's Barracuda

ASUS P5b Deluxe Wfi Ap Mobo

XP Pro.

Now - it was running sweet as a dream for a couple of months, and then when I went turn the machine on last night, I got NOTHING. No POST, no fans going nothing - zip - nada - zilch. :( 

There is a small ASUS insignia on the mobo to say if the PSU is getting powert to the mobo and this is blue meaning the psu is working.

I also swapped out the PSU for an older ANtec SmartBlue 350w PSU and had the same issue. :evil: 

Can anyone help me please? All components AOK, have taken RAM out and tested individually and also same with drives and GFX....

Obviously check all the connections, then try shorting it on with the power jumper. Just use a pen or graphite pencil.

Check your capacitors, maybe something blew...
