I was in the middle of watching a movie (slow day) and suddenly the computer shuts down. Went to turn it back on and nothing; so I flipped the switch on the PSU and walked away for a few hours. When I came back I flipped it back to 1 and noticed both LAN ports were (for lack of a better word) violently blinking. Nothing is plugged into them. Upon further inspection the motherboards power LED light just flickers. Still no post/fans/anything when pressing the power button.
My first thought was the PSU; so with the handy 500W Antec that just so happened to be sitting on the desk next to me I plugged it into the Mobo and hoped for POST. Still nothing. However; the power LED on the motherboard now blinks continuously (kind of like someone is playing with a dimmer switch; unlike the blinking Im used to.) I looked up beep codes with no luck, but still have suspicions it isn't a code.
The most recent thing I tried was pulling everything out of the case and throwing it onto a cardboard box. I've retested both PSUs using only Mobo/CPU with 0 and 1 stick of RAM. Same results as when it was all organized in the box.
I don't have a spare AM2 mobo to try; but is there anything I can try before replacing the mobo?
