Is my mobo fried?

Hello, i would appreciate if you could help me, my problem is that i think i fried my mobo but im not sure.Ok first my sistem specs:
MB:Asus p5vd2-vm se
RAM:1Gb DDR2 800 mhz Geil
Video card:Nvidia 9400gt 1Gb
Integrated sound card (realtek hd i think)
CPU:Intel pentium D dual core 3.0 ghz rated at 3.6 ghz

So one day i saw that my cpu temp is 74 degrees celsius *OMG* and i pushed down a little bit, then the temp was was 67 degrees and then i pushed harder, it lowered down to 57 degrees celsius but after that the pc went off :cry: and now when i try to turn it on the fan just spins for a second and it stops. I'm afraid that the mobo touched the metal case but idk...

    If it's fried then i'm dead
  7. It could be the CPU problem too.
  8. Can u reset the BIOS?


    Reset the CMOS memory the right way as is described in the motherboard manual using the clear CMOS link with the power cord unplugged.
    And when the battery is out, press the power button to discharge all the electricity from the system.

  11. Is this the mobo?

  13. Did u push on the center?

  14. nikorr said:


    Yes right in the center
  15. But i can't get that battery out
  16. Because it sits close to the RAM, and u bent the board,

    it may have the RAM stick not to sit properly.


    Try to re-seat it, after u tried the above. Every time u are going in the case,

    u need to touch the case frame to discharge the static electricity,

    so u don't damage the components!

    Done
  18. Ok done so far i think.. but i have 6 jumper pins and 2 blue caps with 2 pin hole.. how should i arrange them?
  19. Its only the first 3 pins that u use.

    U need to lift that up and move it by 1 pin to the right!

    That's all.
  20. You do that for 10 sec or so. Than put it back.

    Follow the page above.

  22. Best answer selected by koolder.
  23. OK, try one more thing.

    Remove the RAM and than install it right back.

    Sometimes that helps.

    Tried a few times.Doesn't work i think the mobo is fried but i don't understand why is the fan spinning for a second or 2..
  25. It could be the CPU too.

    Or even the PSU.

    How did u find out about the high temp?
  26. Good luck!
