What motherboard is it? and do you still have the USB HDD plugged in?
Hey. Thanks for replying back.. sorry.. it was stupid from my side not to mention what mobo am I using.. but I'm kind of desperate.. it is a DX58SO.... I'm using the Intel core i7 920.. I have tried to start up my computer in both ways.. with and without the phone plugged in.. Got the same sad result in both cases
Iok, i would suggest you remove the power plug, then the CPU and CMOS battery, as to reset teh memory controller, and cmos, then once you get it all back together do a BIOs recovery update at first boot, it dosent matter if it is the same BIOS version. Then see what happens and get back with the results. You cna see here the bios recovery instructions: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-023360.htm
Aslo what happens if you boot with nothing but memory CPU GPU and PSU, so no HDDs no other components at all...
Aslo if you boot without memory do you get any beeps?
ok. these are the test I made already..
I boot the machine with only 1 dimm of ram and it did beep.. I also booted it without any ram and it beeped again..so it seems it does the memory checking...
I took out the cmos battery and boot the computer twice.. it didn't came up..
I also booted the computer without the jumper (that is recovery mode).. nothing... it did not pass from the dash and the black screen..
I put the jumper and the cmos battery back on.. it did not want to start up..
I haven't unplugged the hard drive, but I think it should not affect though... since it isn't even loading the bios.. I will try that..
is it really necessary to unplug the cpu.. ? it so delicate that I wouldn't want anything to happen to it.. anyways, I will if you tell me to..
I haven't tried updating the bios.. yet....
please tell me what to do next between:unplugging the cpu and updating the bios..
hey! do you have any other advice?
