  1. Hi, (First Post)

    While it is often true that when you get no post after startup, that it is often the powersupply - it would be nice to know if the motherboard is functioning properly.
    I use power supply testers, a great time saver, but does anyone know of a reasonalby inexpensive motherboard tester on the market?

    Well, I have seen a few mobo/ram testers on Ebay but have no idea how good they are. Just do a search on there for motherboard tester and several will come up, they are about £20.

    Motherboard tester

    Actually, I found some at The are for isa and pci slots, and have a 6 digit readout- get this, start at 4 bucks US and the expensive one was like 17 Bucks US with free world wide shipping
    Got one on the way, I will let the forum know how it works
    Great for no post motherboard checks
    Thanks for the reply

    Most, if not all motherboards have a connection for a internal PC speaker, if you fit one it will sound out a series of beeps which can help diagnose any problems.
