i got infected by MAZEBAT.A & .B which caused a huge damage to my PC. I did a reformat to :C partition but the infection presisted. The problem that while performing a system repair my PC switched off all of sudden. It cant get it 2 work again.

I thought my HDD was damaged and i changed it with an other one but it didnt work.

Can it be my motherboard? how do i know it doesnt work?

help plz? :cry:

viruses can't destroy hardware unless it's specifically targeted at your unique setup.. highly unlikely
.
check the capacitors on your motherboard
faulty capacitors look like: http://images.google...L...sa=N&tab=li


good ones have nice flat tops and no stuff leaking out of them.

if there are bad one's the your board is toast.

check your power button (they do break)
to check it find out what posts the button is connected to on the board by fallowing the wires and short the 2 metal posts with any small metal object like a flathead screw driver. (be sure not to touch anything but these 2 posts)

head to a local computer shop with your power supply (one with cool people) ask them to plug your power supply in and test it really quick, any place worth it's salt will have a little hand held tester(NOT JUST A STUPID LITTLE LED LIGHT), if they want to charge you for this tell them nevermind and find another place.

post here with your finds
