Just a quick question i have a mobo Gigabyte (GA-8IG1000MK(Rev 2.x)
) and recently a usb cable was plugged in the front ,it was for like a palm pilot hot synch or something.But immediately after that apparently the screen went black , the fans sped up and the computer shut down.Now i have not been able to get any power on the board , or boot up since . I checked my power supply and its fine but I think my mobo is deeead.Oh well , Im sick of pulling my hair out trying to figure out this problem so I thought I would ask anyone if could verify that the thing is pooched and I need to get a new one.

Thanks

You might be correct. Sometimes(in rare cases) when you plug in a USB the motherboard can go dead or a wire migh be dead causing the whole computer not to turn on because it might think this wire is very important to bootup with. You have two options:
1. Take your motherboard to Geek Squad or some other company and have them try to discover the faulty wire.
2. Buy a whole new motherboard.

Recommended:
If you are going to buy a new motherboard try to get a dual core at a low price so you won't need to buy a new one for a couple of years or until they come out with a triple core processor. Another recommended processor would be an SLI board from nVidia(my preference).

But then again, it all depends on how much you are willing to spend! :whistling:
