When I try to power up now, the PSU turns on, the motherboards green LED comes on, the DVD drive is accessed, all fans including the GPU fan come on. The case power light comes on....but the case HD access light says lite instead of blinking like normal. The SB X-Fi card light comes on. There are no error beeps of any kind.
I tried removing all add in cards and re-installing. Tried replugging all internal connectors and wires. Tried moving memory around, and one stick. Tried to boot to post with no HD connected. Nothing changed.
This was a miniscule tip over onto a VERY padded carpet floor. I can't believe my mobo might have broken because of that. It tipped over flat on its mobo down side, so the largish Zalman fan pushed into the CPU chip. No side loads or shearing forces involved or anything. Although a few years old....the PC is almost new with no more than 50 hours on it since a fresh build. I just don't do gaming any more so it gets used breifly once a week.
Any ideas? My specs are below.
PC: AMD 64 X2 6000+, Zalman fan, Asus M2N32-SLI Delux Wireless Ed., Corsair HX620 Modular PS, Win XP SP2b, DX9.c, EvGA 275GTX Superclocked /1792mb, Creative X-fi Pro, Corsair DDR2 2048mb dual channel, WD 150 Velociraptor, Asus PG221 22"LCD.
