I have recently built a home system I use exclusively for Music, MS Office 07' and the internet...

It is only 3 months old, and after going to sleep one day with the system on, I awoke to a dead system. Tried restarting, no bios, no system startup despite the fact that power is reaching the mobo and all other components. Pulled out Pentium D 940 to look for marks or burns, none..no odd smell is coming from the machine, and HDD is spinning. The HDD Light is solid, The mobo was just returned from rma bc i thought it was dead, i was wrong...

Anyone have any other solutions or ideas to what the problem could be? i hooked up the system speaker to try and get some beeps...nothing...

so i should look into getting a new case and ps, ultra 500w being my choice?? What should i take of the fact that the ps technically is still powering components?

that the PSU is FRIED and not DEAD

hopefully just a new PSU is needed.

seriously 3 out 4 of those suckers fail.

anything else sounds like "what did you change?"
its not posting

ultra PSU?,the X-finity is all flash and no action, the X-PRO is a better choice
did you try with one stick of ram?
did you pull the cmos battery and stick back in to clear the BIOS settings?

RMA the case w/ PSU if you can.
don't cheap out on the PSU.
