Think the connector for the power to the cpu has broken because everything works fine until i plug in the power to the CPU. The problem is it seems they no longer make the ep35 which is a shame because it was a nice board for the low price. So i need something cheap to take its place. Running Q6600 2gbx4 of ddr2 ram a 4850 Radeon GPU. Don't plan on upgrading any of my other hardware until i feel a need to upgrade it all. So something in the 50-100 range that can run that hardware fine and handle a bit of overclocking is what I need.
yes I did some searching around and decided on this board got it in and replaced it yesterday. Solved my problem.
I meant everything powers up. I had everything plugging into the psu/motherboard and it would run plug in the cpu power and it would start and not even a second later power off. So i determined that the power connector to the cpu was probably short circuited. I also tried everything in the boot troubleshooting sticky before hand. Obviously the board was at fault since my system is running fine now.
