    Default Computer wont turn on

    hello all

    I was hoping to get some sound advice...
    for a while my system has been quite unstable restarting whenever it wished.
    and the other day it was having some issues booting past bios until it suddenly turned itself off...and since then i havent been able to turn it on.

    ive gone through the usual diagnostics...
    1. checked the psu on another machine which works fine.
    2. cheaked the power button that works fine also
    3. taken out each component one by one seeing if its anything stopping it from starting but still no luck
    4. disconnected everything except cpu and ram and tried to turn it on..no luck
    5. tried resetting the cmos no luck
    6. even went the route of taking out the bois chip and replacing it again after 30 mins. and still nothing.

    the motherboard is getting some sort of power still as the green led is lit when the psu is connected.

    the board is an asus p5w dh deluxe, could any give me anymore advice on what could be wrong or would it be safe to say the mobo is well and truly dead?

    thanks

    Since we don't know exactly your system specs and I'm doing a wide diagnose guess;
    Check the memory for mix matched or bad stick
    Excess overclocking?
    PSU is under power for your particular hardware (it's might working fine with someone else but it is not with your setup).

    Usually when it has problems to go past Bios screen or lot of problems in start, usually then the
    boot sector is breaking down. And when it brokes down or windows can't find it, happens nothing.
    You can try on your friend; adding your HDD in his system and run CHKDSK to your HDD. If there
    is problems, your problem is HDD. There is in internet some data backup softwares and you may
    rescue your needed data, but it's not 100% sure. I menaged rescue one HDD by adding it on another PC and run CHKDSK. If i remember correct, it's CHKDSK /F (fix) And the CHKDSK fixed boot sector and HDD started work again. Hope you got luck and you can save your HDD and pc too :]
