Emachines w5243 Motherboard: MCP61SM-GM My bios is not loading, hard drive not loading, pretty much nothing is loading. I tested the power with an alternate power supply, the cpu fan comes on as does the front panel LED but no signal is being sent to the monitor. I ran all of the basic tests including swapping ram, video card, taking out the cmos battery, etc. Also, the power LED stays on and in order to turn off the power to the computer i need to unplug it, not sure if thats an indication of what could be the problem (i also checked the front panel connections to the mobo which are ok). Is it possible the motherboard is just fried? or maybe i'm just missing something minor? any ideas are appreciated.
