    Dead

    Hi everyone

    Checking for ideas on what has happened. It is eigther the motherboard or the power supply. Computer quit and will not start back up, nothing not even fans. The motherboard is a Asus Rampage II Extreme. There are LEDs lit up on the motherboard, TweekIt & probeIt area. I am thinking it is the power supply but want to run past the techs here before I order another power supply. The power supply is a Corsair 1050 watt.

    Thanks for any replies

    Specifically which lights ?

    What color are they ? (if any are lit, chances are that it isn't the power supply)

    Have you made any recent changes ?

    what are the rest of your specs ?

    The LEDs on the MB is for start, and tweeks. These Red LEDs stay on all the time when there is power. This is the second power supply for this computer. The last one had a rail with low voltage.

    Yes I know all about the red LEDs and what they do.

    For future referance on this type of problem to test this type of Corsair PSU.

    Unplug everything the PSU is pluged into in the computer. With a U shaped paper clip or the like, on the 24 pin ATX power lead the connect with the paper clip the Green and Black pockets and if the fan on the PSU doesn't come on the PSU is bad. Of course the 110 power cord has to be pluged into a live 110 wall socket and the switch on the PSU has to be in the ON position.
