if your mb has video port..try unplugging the gpu with the power off. (remving the video card from the system). see if the onboard video works..you should get some fans moving if the ps is working. if there not or there twitching..could be the ps or there a screw or somthing shorting the ps out. alos try using one stick of ram to see if one stick went bad. i would see if someone has an extra power supply. the brand you have is meh...
Yeah, I don't understand it either. It wouldn't have been ESD though, since it worked originally. If it was ESD, it just would never have worked. It wouldn't be a short either because of the same reason.
A Windows update shouldn't have killed it either, though. Just strange, but no POST beeps almost always means a dead mobo.
and theres no lights on the mobo so i cant tell if that helps or not but its like a $90 mobo could you suggest a good one for under $125
How new is it? I'm guessing that you just got it, so it should still be within the 30 day replacement period for most vendors. Even if it's past that, it's still has a manufacturers warranty. Just RMA it.
if you got it from new egg go into the sales of the mb there a bock to request an rma. if you got it on amazon contact the seller. if you go it from micro ceneter...just walk in with the box and mb and your sales sheet. they swap the mb right there. if not the mb vendor have under there support page a link to start the rma...most just need the serial number of the mb to start the rma. when the rma number is given you have to ship the dead board with the rma paperwork in the box and the rma number on the ups or shipping lable. (be care full putting the cpu cover back on so you dont bend any pins.)
