I am trying to fix my friends computer which uses an asus m4n72-e motherboard and evga gtx 275 video card. When I power on the motheboard (I have the board on a box and use a screwdriver to short power pins) the cpu fan spins up then stops, spins up then stops.
Am I missing something trivial here like a power connection? I have tried 2 different power supplies with this. At this point I am just assuming that the motherboard is bad.
