    Default Asrock 870 Extreme 3 No post No codes

    Hi guys i have a strange problem,i have searched around a bit and have seen the problem but nobody has solved it.

    System Specs:
    Amd 955 x4
    Asrock 870 Extreme 3
    Kingston KHX1600C9D3K2 2x4gb (supported in memory qvl)
    64gb kingston ssd now hdd
    500gb seagate sata 3 hdd
    Ati 4890 gpu (saphire)
    Corsair hx520w psu
    Windows 7 x64 Home premium

    The problem: built the system a few days ago and was running fine for 2 days. i shut the computer down for the night and went to restart in the morning and nothing.

    When i press the power button on the case,everything gets power and spins up but the Dr. Debug led stays blank and the computer doesnt post into bios.

    I have tried resseting bios with battery and with jumpers.
    Moved the ram around with a single stick.
    Swapped graphics card (Ati 4850)
    Swapped power supply (generic 600w)
    And lastly i have rebuilt the computer twice,still with no luck.

    I have an Asus m4a78-m motherboard out of my sons computer that runs all the peripherals apart from the ddr3 ram.

    Does anybody have any ideas? Have i missed anything?
    Thanks for any help guys

    Hi guys,just an update. I had packed the motherboard up to send back to place of purchase but i had removed the battery and set the jumper to clear cmos.
    I was in the process of replacing the battery etc and thought i would give it one last shot.

    AND IT WORKED!!! (sorry for shouting im really )

    So if anybody else has this problem,my battery was removed for 2 days.
    I had tried the 30 second,30 minutes but it didnt seem to do the trick.

    They are very good capacitors if they are holding a charge for that long of a time. Good Job. The next time you may want to try unpluging the power chord and hold the front case power button in for about 30 seconds to drain them and clear memory.
