  1. @greenhorn Do you have any tips for me?
  2. UPDATE Tested with the multimeter (shown in attachement). 6.4V across the 2 pins. Does this give anycleus are to why the PC won't switch on? I'm a complete beginner with these things so please let me know if I have done something incorrect, the chances are very high that this is the case. Thanks for any comments, Alex
  3. I have already taken the mobo out of the case for testing, I've attached some pics of the striped down PC. I am buying a multimeter tomorrow to see what the voltages are like. I have tested with 2 known working PSUs, so I really doubt there is a problem there. The previous mobo died because I ripped out an old gpu with the power still on (oops! lesson learnt!) As you can see the light on the mobo is on (orange to the left of the second pic), but when I put the screwdriver between the + and - of the power switch there is nothing
  4. Hi Duckster, Yes I tried the following: Ensured the power button headers were in correct order on the motherboard pins shorted the motherboard pins with a screwdriver (worked, but now doesn't) So I'm wondering if there is another method I could try before ordering a new mobo
  5. as expected, the other PSU does not change anything.. so the likely culprit is the mobo. Are there any good techniques to switch the PC on (other than shorting the pins on the mobo with a screwdriver)?
  6. Hi, ASUS PRIME B320M-K mobo i7-6700k Samsung Pro 850 M.2 drive AMD RX470 GPU Corsair 450V PSU I recently posted about a faulty mobo that I replaced as per advice on this forum and IT WORKED! However, I'm back on the forum The new motherboard worked fine for a while now, but in order to turn the PC on I had to short the power switch on the motherboard with a screwdriver. The power switch on the PC never worked. Now, even the screwdriver trick won't work, so I have a unresponsive PC. What should I do? The PC was fully operational in the mean time, now I get no power at all other than the mobo lights. Do I need to buy another mobo? Is there another power switch trick I could try? I have a spare PSU that I could try to eliminate PSU error Thanks for any advice,
  7. Great, thanks for the replies. I'll run ccleaner if I can boot (hopefully)! Unfortunately I don't have another PC with an M.2 drive spare, so if I run into problems I think I may have too lose the data.
  8. Hi, I am switching from an ASUS Z170-A board to an ASUS PRIME B250M-K after a short caused the board to stop working. What is the likelihood that I will be able to just switch over the components without having driver issues and having to reinstall W10? Are there any steps I can take to make this more likely? Bear in mind I can not boot up the current board to modify any drives. If somehow it works fine, should I back up all the data I need and reinstall W10 anyway? to avoid issues later?
