  1. The HDD and Power LEDs on one of my computers have "died"
    i.e. they no longer work. Both of them stopped working at the
    same time. It's an old SOYO SY-6BA+III board. Everything else
    seems to be working just fine..... any ideas?.... could something
    have burned out / died to cause this?
    Oh yes.... have checked the wires ;)

    As they are just usual diodes you can connect them to a usual 9v battery, if they lights up they work if they don't well I hope uou get the point...

    Btw, also check the orientation, diodes must be connetced to correct way, i.e. plus to plus and minus to minus...

    Thanks Per Hansson.... yup, connected them to a 9v battery and
    they are dead.... I'll raid some off an old case that I have laying
    around.
    Thanks again.
    ;)
