I built a 2012 PC that lasted until July/2015, when there was a power shortage at my place, and my Asus X79 Deluxe had some burnt components and died. I then proceeded to buy a DX79SR, (a local tech store installed it) but when I turn it on, it shows the '00' code at the MB and the screen goes dark (does not show any 0_ in the screen, as it did in some similar cases I found here at the community). I don't hear any beeps, and even if I try to turn it on without graphic card, or without any RAM, it does not beep and it keeps showing the same 00. Tried to change RAM sticks, checked also for the basic troubleshooting process. I'm wondering if anyone has seen anything like it? Could be a hardware MB failure? Could the CPU had been damaged on the power shortage, back in July? (I've heard this is extremely rare, and also that this MB has been having some compatibility issues, so I'm ruling it out for now) .I have read a similar case, and this MB wasn't compatible with Radeon cards, in general. So I bought the EVGA GeForce Nvidia G210 card. No luck, same error code, nothing changed.
I reseted the battery with the jumper position change, and then also with the removal of the battery. I'm not used on snooping around too much on these components and I would be very happy to get some clues on what else I should try. I can't find a store nearby that has a LGA2011 MB or CPU, to test either of them.
Is there anything I can do BIOS related to try and solve this? I know very little about that or hardware in general, insights would be highly appreciated
Here's the config:
i7-3930K 3.20GHz 12MB LGA2011
Intel DX79SR LGA 2011
Corsair Cooler Hydro Series H100 CWCH100
HD Western Digital SATA 2 1TB 64MB Caviar Green
SSD Crucial 128 GB SATA 6Gb/s
RAM Corsair Vengeance Blue 4 GB DDR3 SDRAM (4x=16GB)
VGA Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 OC 1024MB (1GB) DDR5 PCI-Express 11202-05-20G (Also trying with the brand new EVGA GeForce Nvidia G210)
UPS nobreak APC BR1500G Back-UPS Pro 1500VA
XFX 650W XTR Series Full Modular PSU 80 Plus Gold P1-650B-BEFX (brand new, I also have the original PSU for this rig, a functioning Seasonic 750W Gold)
The computer has been dead for about 4 months, and I'm trying hard to find clues on this problem for the last weeks.
Thanks a lot for any help
