everything in my pc seems to be getting power, all my fans all my dvd-roms all my hdd'sopen light up spin up and seem to get power (even my cpu fan) and my computer will stil turn off if i hold the power button in for 5seconds meaning that the bios isnt dead. also when i remove my ram i get no beeps and when my ram is in i get no post beep no beeps at all. ive replaces the videocard and the mobo already with no luck.
any ideas? is it my psu or my ram or my cpu? im low on cash right now lol i just wanna know whta the issue is!
my system is as follows:
mobo(new): pure crossfire advantage sapphire pc-a9rd480Adv
mobo(old): ASrock 939Dual-sata2
CPU: opteron 148 2.2ghz
psu: aspire concord mr500w
ram:1gb(512x2)pc3200 corsair value select
sound:gamesurround fortissimoIII 7.1
Remove everything from your computer.
Inspect the motherboard for leaking capacitors or other damage. Examine each connection for burn marks.
Do a barebones configuration:
One video card: 9600XT
One stick ram
No hard drives or CD-ROM
A few chassis fans
What does it do?
Replace the power supply and see if your barebones configuration powers up.
