    Default Asrock X58 extreme - not powering up

    Hello folks!

    Recently my rig with Asrock X58 Extreme stopped powering on. The first thing I suggest was the PSU or the case power switch - so I took 100% working PSU from the other PC I have ( Cooler Master Silent Pro M600), disconnected all the peripherals hardware from the Mobo ( HDD, DVDRW, VGA, removed all the RAM, disconected all the front panels, audio, USB plugs) - the only thing remain is the Mobo with the 24Pin power cable plugged + 2x4 power CPU supply plugged. Pressed the Power buton on the Mobo ( Asrock X58 Extreme has power and reset button onboard) and nothing again. The thing that i noticed is - when i unplug the power cable ( or change the power swith on the PSU from 1 to 0 ) and plug it again - the CPU fan and the PSU fan starts for about 5-6 seconds alone - without I even press anything - and after that they stops and the Mobo don't want to power at all. Removed the Mobo from the case (suggested that maybe the case short circuit something on the Mobo) - set again only the power cables needed to the Mobo - the same situation. The last thing i noticed is when the RAM is removed and speaker is connected to the Mobo - when I plug the power cable and the Mobo powers on alone for the 5-6 seconds before it dies - there are the 3 beeps for missing RAM - and just after that the Mobo dies and dont wont to power on. Tried to connect only 20 pin power cable to the Mobo + 2x4 CPU power, tried 24 pin + 4 pin CPU power, tried 20 pin + 4 pin - all the same results. Can you guys give me some advice, or you think the Mobo is dead - just like my thoughts ?
