    no boot at all

    I can't believe it. It's the power supply. I just hooked up my brother's Antec power supply to it and it worked. :confused: God knows how I just completely fried my expensive power supply but thanks guys for the help because I wanted to immediately blame the motherboard and to think I was about ready to order a new one.... Well I'm definitely getting a nice new OCZ power supply this time, I guess this thermaltake was just a pos..

    no boot at all

    I do have an onboard power and reset switch. Ex_roadie when I flip on the rocker switch on the back of the PSU the power light on the front of the case goes on!?! other than that there is one little yellow LED that goes on on the motherboard, it's below the bottom PCI slot, it's called LED1 or something, and it's not red it's yellow. That is the only LED that turns on. Hitting either the power button on the mobo does absolutely nothing, no sign of movement at all. Anyways I've got it flipped on it's side now and I'm attacking the innards so I should have this thing apart in a minute or two. Then I'm going to try what you posted retrat, even though I've already done about the same thing except without the shorting thing. I dunno if I know exactly where to stick the screwdriver.

    no boot at all

    Yea I only have one stick of RAM in it's in the top orange slot. And umm no thanks I'm not going to kill my psu after already having killed my motherboard lol.
  6. All I did was update to the latest official BIOS which I have done twice before and now it won't boot at all. I followed the proper procedure as posted on happy_game's sticky thread but it won't boot. It did say the flash was successful. I'm been trying to clear the CMOS over and over again to no avail. I followed ex_roadie's post about trying to get it to boot and no luck. Basically as soon as I plug in the power cord and switch the rocker switch to the 'on' position the power supply starts making a little noise so I know it's on and working. And the power LED on the front of the case lights up green, which would normally indicate that the computer is on but it is obviously not on. No LEDs on the motherboard light up at all. Hitting the power button on the case or the one on the mobo does nothing. I highly doubt the issue is with the PSU because what are the odds it would be working perfectly and then just die at the exact time I do a BIOS update. Being the pessimist that I am I don't think my comp is ever going to work again without buying new stuff. Is there any way to at least salvage my data? (2 drives in raid 0)

    delete a os

    You'd want to use WINE to increase compatability. But even so very few programs and even fewer windows games will work on linux.

    What sportscar are you?

    You are a Mazda RX-8! You're sporty, yet practical, and you have a style of your own. You like to have fun, and you like to bring friends along for the ride, but when it comes time for everyday chores, you're willing to do your part.

    Catalyst 6.3 Drivers Out Today

    These drivers are really nice. I still don't use the CCC as my primary graphics option utility but it is starting to become more bearable as they update and fix it.
