    Bad MB?

    I think I may have burned out my MB. When I turn it on, the CPU and cooling fan turn on, but nothing else happens. No picture, no HD activity. I do get a clicking sound on the speakers, and when I turn the monitor on it gets louder.

    I took it out of the car and hooked it up to my home PSU and HD, and the same thing, though I didnt have the sound hooked up. I take it, even with nothing but the monitor cable hooked up, It should at least be able to get to BIOS, correct? I doubt if it could be the cars PSU, since I get no error codes on the LED. The LED on the MB comes on as usual.

    The MB is a Intel D201GLY2A and the PSU is a DSATX.

    try unplugging all usb devivces, put the cmos clearing jumper to the 'reset position' and try turning on the pc. these newer intel boards will fire up and reset the cmos, then tell you to put the jumper back to 'normal' position.

    intel puts a lot of safety trips in their mainboards. if you go out of range somewhere, they like to freeze up and not restart until you compltely reset them. that, or leave it unplugged for at least overnight... that often works too.

    I tried ALL of those you mentioned and even took the battery out, still the same thing. Ah well, I wanted something faster anyway.

    Thanks.
