PSU or Mainboard failure

Hi all,

My system went down last night, while my daughter was on messenger upstairs, ( both systems networked with cat cable).

It will not reboot, and all I am getting is a quick flash of light on the power led, on front of the case. There is no turning of fans, or any sign of anything powering up.

My problem is that I don't have another 24 pin power supply to try with my own system, nor a socket 939 mobo either.

My system specs are Amd64 3200, 550Watt Aerocool PSU, 2Gb geil ram, Nvidia 6600Gt video, Epox 9NPA Ultra Mobo, 2x Maxtor 160Gb Sata h/d's.

Anyone knoe what else I could try.? Any aid would be most welcome.

Don't take the old one out. just change the leads with the PSU in bottom of case to test

woodchip,

Just tested my own PSU in the kid's system, and it's working fine, and my own will still not boot, with a different PSU.
So I guess a new mobo will have to be ordered.

Thanks for the postings.

I assume you have checked the cable from the power switch to the motherboard has not come adrift and if it hasn't, check there is a circuit through the switch.
