  1. My machine has a P4i45GV MotherBoard by ASRock. I was working on my combo when I suddenly heard some sounds like a short circuit. I was very fast at switching off the power. Now it can't light up i.e. the power led is not lighting up. But when I switch on the machine both the CPU fan and the Power Supply fan rotate for One Second. The Board seems to be fine. How Can I know for sure that the motherboard is/isn't spoiled.

    It could be your PSU thats had it.
    To test it you need to remove all connectors from the mobo then short the green wire to one of the black ones. With this done the PSU should fire up completely, if it doesnt then its blown.
    If it works ok then let me know and i will help you to find the exact cause of your problems.
    Hope that helps. Rik.
