Tried to turn on pc, no dice, using laptop to post.
No lights, no fans, no bios, nothing, power button has gone full retard.
what ive tried
1. paperclip test. psu fan spins, pass
2. multimeter voltage tests, all wires show correct value for their color coding. pass
3. tried a lower rated psu, 220 max load, barebones setup(mobo,ram,cpu,ssd-rest removed). PSU did not have correct connections for both of mobo power ports( the 24 pin was there, the other one was not. I believe that connector is for cpu power?) Fans began spinning when holding the button on the back of the psu. would not spin fans unless that button was held down. no idea why, its a pretty old pc psu.
4. broke whole computer down, double checked every connection, put back together with original psu. nothing.
my mobo has no speaker or leds to know whats happening IF it IS trying to POST.
voltage tests show correct values, however it has no load on it so it could still be broke.
Update: Used Original PSU on old computer, computer started right up, no issue. Used another power switch to ensure it wasn't that, it did not work.
Now thinking the MOBO is the culprit, and having trouble finding one that works with my setup. Hoping for suggestions for mobo now!
Setup: MSI p67 G43 b3 MOBO (needing replacement)
4 sticks of 2 gig RAM, unsure of speed but assume standard.
I5 2500k CPU
256 gig SSD
2 x 750 gig HD's
So needing a mobo that fits an I5 CPU, a single GPU, 4 slots for standard RAM. Case has tons of room
