Soldering Pionts On Back Of Mb


Recommended Posts

my new biuld wont boot. it starts to then just stops.my keyboard and mouse dont work during this time as well, and i cant get a display also.this same thintg happend to me boefore and i found out that the back i/o plate was grounding out my mb,all the symptoms are the same. so i was thinking about bending back out of the way all the soldering pionts on the rear of my mb.i was just wondering if this could possibley do any harm to my mb?

of course im using standoffs <_<

but i just bent what i thought were the offending soldering pionts out of the way and still no luck. i know the ram is good as is the video card,all the components are good.the fact that my mouse and key board wont power up and thiers no display is what led me to believe something was grounding out near the rear i/o. what stinks is that i dont have another mb to test to see if thats the prob. :(

How about trying the mobo out of the case? Just set it on the antistatic plastic bag and start with nothing but the cpu and see if you get any beeps. If you get a continuous beeping sound add the ram and then try again adding components one by one.

test it on a phone book.

 

and bending the points will not do damage, you can use a horizontal wire cutter to cut off the excess points, this willl not do damage because it is stil lmaking contact with the board

I disagree i think he should test it on a peice of bread. :lol:

 

something is dead. go buy another board from best buy or something, then test it on that. if that works then RMA ur old board and when it comes back from newegg or w/e u bought it from, return the other board for a full refund.

I think minddrive, you mean dont put your mobo ONTOP of the anti static bag

 

anti static bags are designed to keep static electricity AROUND the bag so it doesnt go on, but putting your mobo or naything else on it, your putting it on a bed of static :O
