My PC suddenly wont boot any more - worked for about 10 minutes this morning
ASUS A8N-SLI SE Mobo
AMD Athlon 4200 CPU (Socket 939)
ASUS GE-Force 7000 GPU
2 x 1gb PC2700 ECC memory
Use XP and more recently windows 7 (Use both)
I switch on and the CPU, PSU and Case fans work
The screen light goes green as if about to display BIOS. then flashes again.
Nothing else happens, no beeps. and I have to hold the power down for 4 seconds to switch off. The fan on the SLI NVIDIA chips failed about 8 months ago (I suspect this is the cause) System running fine for about 3 years apart from this - various XP rebuilds of course!!!
What I've done so far
I have tried reseating my memory using 1 stick only in every combination then exactly the same with the 2nd stick
Removed all non essentials e.g. additional PCI's HDD's etc - same
Reseated GPU - same
Emptied the case of everything CPU, heatsink, mobo. hdd's PSU everything. cleaned the dust off and reassembled. - same
As mentioned earlier, I suspect that my SLI Chip-set is fried, but before buying a new mobo, is there anything else I could try. (Unfortunately I don't have spare GPU, PSU or memory to try!!!)
Any help would be much appreciated
