From the top:
I find that pushing the power button has no effect, so I changed the power supply. Now i have a power supply that has an independent on/off. I turn on the new power supply, and the fan is working, also the fan on the heatsink is working. Power button still has no effect.
I tested it with PCI card removed. With another HDD. With memory reseated. With CMOS battery removed and replaced. No effect.
There is no noise other that the sound of the fan, which doesn't turn off.
There is only power to one of two CD drives.
Here is what is strange. I thought something was wrong with the power button. There are three 2pin connectors running fron the power switch to the MOBO. Two of them are for the LED's, and another is to the power switch. These two pin connectors attach to the MOBO at a location of 9 pins. So there are three pins not used. When I moved these connectors around on this 9pin socket, I was able to get the Blue LED at the powerswitch to light, (normally it would not.) but still no Boot.
Any ideas as to the problem? Is the MOBO fried?
