Is my motherboard fried?

  1. Hello,

    Here is my problem:

    I bought a new case for my old computer.
    I just unplugged everything, and transfer the all thing to the new case.

    I connected back the hard drive, dvd, etc... and connected the powerswitch
    to the motherboard. This is what's happening.

    The fans start to turn for 1 second and stop, and then nothing happens.

    the power led on the motherboard is on when I switch on the power, but when I press the power button on the case, the fans turn for 1 sec. and stop.

    I unplugged the powerswitch from the motherboard and to check further, I put a screwdriver on both pins of the powerswitch and it does the same thing exactly.

    When I rebuilt that computer a month ago, I did the same with a screwdriver and it started everything ok.

    I have to say that when I transfered the motherboard to the new case, I forgot to screw in the standoff , and screwed it directly, which I know is not good !!! :)

    Anyway, does that mean that my motherboard (ASUS A7V133) is fried? or is there a way to know for sure?

    Thanks a lot for your help,

    William.

    I would say that your motherboard is fried... Try a new one, and be a little more careful ;)
