Hi, trying to fix my mobo Gigabyte Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000. PC doesnt power up, no fans/HDD spin, no POST, no video nothing. Pushing the power button does nothing.
Well, so far steps i ve taken:
- I checked the PSU, shortcircuited the pins in order to check if it works. Changed with a good one. nothing.
- disconnected everthing. I left only CPU, Ram. Nothing. I removed also the GPU.
- Checked mobo for strange capacitors or blown elements. nothing strange.
- Used reset button instead of power button to power up in case the button was faulty.
2 facts in case they can help:
-last thing before mobo goes blank was to plug a usb stick. (of course I unplugged every usb connector from mobo afterwards)
-i can hear a really silent Voltage whine when I power on the PSU.
I believe there a short circuit somewhere and I assume it has to do with USB ports, controller etc.
Hi, most probably it's the motherboard. Is it still under warranty?
It's definitely the motherboard and its an old one so no warranty. I was hoping to hear any insights like check that component, or cut those PCB trails (crazy idea) to isolate USB circuitry.. ok I am asking too much, right? I think i'll have to live with my dead mobo..
