upon further inspection, it appears there are 2 blown capacitors. at least thats what i think they are. right behind cpu 4 tall cylindrical things with 1 smaller on either end, and another row of 3 right nest to them. these are between cpu and back panel. is my mobo fried, and what might have caused it? i don't want to replace it and do the same thing again.
Apologies for not replying earlier.
Actually i thought that this post was already answered as it was shown as "RE:D845H doesnot start up"
Anyway, it looks like the board is dead.
Things to check are:
If everything is compatible, then try to remove the memory. See if the board issues any 3 beeps.
Put back the memory.
Switch the bios jumper to Maintenance Mode
Boot the system
Try to recovery the bios thru the Iflash Method if it boots.
Other than this, i dont see any more suggestions to tell you
All the best,
