Just out of couriosity, does the motherboard actually boot up with NO perephials plugged into it at all? I mean without CPU/Ram plugged into it? I think i've tried this before on my old ultra-d & the motherboard actually turned on & powered up? I just tried this with my DR & its doing exactly the same thing. Turn on for millisecond then switch itself off...
What do you mean?
Hello fellow OCAU'er
Out of interest, tried different RAM, different RAM slots, another CPU or BIOS chip?
Notice any blow capacitors and/or browning along circuits?
I already assume you have tried it on a bench set-up to avoid any shorting out.
Might be a victim of the vap. Notice any condensation?
Either way, sorry to hear dude Best of luck and be sure to let us know if you get it back up
Heya mate, seems a lot's of OCAU members here
Have tried diff ram/cpu, havent tried bios chip though. Yes the system is sitting on a wooden bench so there's no shorting there. Definately no condensation heh. I've got the HSF on atm.
did you try swapping out the battery? any CR2032 battery will suffice
havent tried that, i'll give it a sho :thumbup:
I think the best thing now is it check each component....
DO you see both the amber leds turning up?
Were you ocing? did you have any teperature problems..?
Try swapping the battery.. if not try a different psu.. sometimes they can just die.. or check your psu in another rig..
any chance you can check your cpu on another rig?
you have it out of case right?
It has been done. All componenets have been tested individually. So its down to the motherboard.
Yes I overclock, 3.2Ghz 24/7, 3.5Ghz for benching
Temps are usually in the negatives as I phase change.
When I plug the psu into the mobo I get 1 amber light near the 4 red leds. When I hit the power on button on the mobo it powers on then switches itself off. When it switches itself off both amber lights are on. Near ram & near the 4 red leds..
Thanks to all the replies so far. But I think its almost time to put the old girl in her grave.
I thought someone may have experienced an issue like this, but I have done quite a few searches & I couldnt find anyone with this exact issue
Thanks again all
