I tried to reset CMOS - nothing happened
I replaces RAMs - nothing happened
I replaces prossecer - nothing happened

Removed all attached cards - nothing happened
I think i know what is wrong...one of these two solutions is repairable with this motherboard. One, the bios chip is corrupted. Normally this issue is never fixable, but the bios chip is actually socket mounted here, meaning that instead of being sautered directly to the motherboard it is actually replaceable. The only issue with this is that while it is too easy to swap the bios chip on this motherboard, it is also nearly too hard to find the correct chip to install on the board. It is not a matter of the type of bios chip, really, but instead a matter of finding a chip with the right bios for your motherboard model. However, there may be a second problem instead with your motherboard, which is non repairable, and that would be that the motherboard has run long and hard for a very long time, and one of the main capacitors on the motherboard that manage the electricity received from the power supply unit is dead, or the chip on the motherboard managing the "power good" signal that the motherboard requests from the power supply is dead.
