  1. Thanks for any help I really do appreciate it.. My motherboard when powered is showing the green led light but the CPU fan is not spinning and the monitor is not lighting either. No beep codes either so am I correct in assuming that there is a problem with either the motherboard or the CPU, can I get any help please?? Thanks again

    Sounds like a motherboard or power supply. What's your motherboard's brand name and model number? Also, what is the power supply's brand name, wattage, and model number?

    Regards :)

    Thanks for the quick reply. Okay the motherboard is an Intel D945PSN or GNT and the power supply is a brand new jpac 550 Watt ATX Dual Fan Power Supply w/24pin /20pin. Thanks for any help.

    It sounds like a power supply problem; do you have a spare PSU or motherboard you could try?

    I tried another working power supply and there is no difference so we can assume that the problem is not the power supply. I tried booting without any memory sticks to see if there is a change but its the same. Thanks again

    Yeah, it sounds like a mobo problem.

    Do you think the Mobo is shot or could it be the CPU?

    I think it's the mobo. but before you get another one, anybody else agree or disagree?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I concur, it`s probably the mobo.

    However, it is possible for the cpu to be faulty, but I think it`s unlikely. If you`re in any doubt, you can always have your cpu tested at your local pc repair shop. This will only cost a few dollars.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
