Maybe dead mobo

Recommended Posts

Here's the situation.

 

Computer boots up for about 5 seconds, then turns it self off again for roughly 4 seconds, before turning on again for 5. Rinse and repeat. No post beeps at all.

 

I'm guessing that it's a mobo issue (Gigabyte P35-DS3P) and that it's finally bitten the dust, right?

 

If that's the case, what socket 775 mobo would people recommend as a replacement?

 

Running with a Q6600, GF8800GTS with 2gb RAM at present.

First thing i would reset the BIOS, failing that, I would remove all components and power up with only the CPU in, and listen for the "where's my RAM" beep. then add one component at a time untill your power on cycle shows up again.

Yay that worked. All it needed was a reset on the bios, and everything appears normal again.

 

Thanks heaps!
