D:

My computer is dead.

Fans all spin up but it doesn’t beep and nothing ever appears on the screen.

It’s not the HDs, it’s not the ram, it didn’t make a difference when I changed the CPU back to the single-core and I can’t check with a different graphics card because I do not own one.

Sigh.

I guess that means I’ve gotta replace the motherboard, I want a new computer already…

  • Eeeks.. :(

    What sort of graphics cards does it take? But .. no beep sounds like it’s not even getting as far as looking for one. I presume you’ve tried powering up the mb with everything disconnected?

  • It’s a radeon 3800 series card, the motherboard is an asus something or other, didn’t try getting it up and going without the graphics card plugged in but it’s fairly new (first one, the fan fell off and I replaced it when I noticed the smell) and I can’t see any reason it would have failed, I hadn’t been getting any graphical glitches or anything and it’s never been overheated. New motherboard should be cheap enough off ebay but I might also set myself a budget and see what I can get.

  • Yeah tried that, still no beep. Motherboard’s an ASUS A8V-XE which seems to be an economical choice (at least in 2007)

    There doesn’t seem to be any on ebay but I’m sure I’ll find something.

  • Hmm.. aria have a different asus socket 939 motherboard plus processor bundle at £50:

    I can’t see the board for sale on it’s own, however.
    I don’t think I have anything compatible hanging about here, though. Will have a rummage in the morning though.
