    Default defective mobo ?

    Ref: Asrock 970 Pro3
    I'm in trouble guys

    long story short: a sparkle has shut down the mobo abruptly . Was it static electricity, i don't know. I had my hands inside (well not really inside) trying to remove a piece of paper i was experimenting with air ducting and such..anyway.

    After searching for fried parts on the mobo, couldn't find none.
    Now, the mobo is starting but:
    - i have no video (vga, dvi, hdmi... nothing)
    - when i press F2 to enter in the bios i don't hear the bip of the mobo
    - graphic card not working on my other computer, the fan is spinning though

    Could it be that it fried my graphic card and since the 970 pro3 don't have an IGP (integrated graphic card) it refuse to really start because of the defective gc, hence the non bip ?

    Please enlighten me experts

    The video card could be fried, yes. I assume you don't get a BIOS display at all, right?

    Fried parts are not always visible, particularly from static damage.

    Given that the video card would not work in another PC, you need to test your 970 with another video card.

    nope no bios for me so far
    i have removed everything, tried with mobo+cpu + ram+ keyboard no luck
    - the fans connected to the mobo fan headers spin: good sign ?

    I guess i'll give a call to the nearest computer shop , ask for help and cross the fingers it's only the gc which fried it's a gt220 not the higher end kind..

    Unplug all the all the PSU power plugs from the board and inspect all the PSU plugs ends, and all the plugs on the board. Then pull the memory and do the same and any other hardware.

    I'm back with the same mobo (but a new one they couldn't repair it so it's a new one) and i'm in trouble i get 5 short beeps when i start
    I read on the net that these 5 short beeps mean the cpu could be damaged they also suggest it's the ram (they suggest to reset the memory ,how you do that ?) what's your input on all that thank you.
    I have doubled check the cpu was well put

    One thing though, i haven't put a graphic card yet because the previous mobo fried it
