    Default ga-p55m-ud2, is it dead?

    My computer quit running all by itself. When I press the power button, all I get is a momentary flash of the green phase 1 led, that's it. I tried a known good power supply, and the same thing happened. I tried removing and swapping around sticks of memory, the same thing. Power supply fan will not start running, nothing. Is my mobo dead, or is it my CPU?

    I called Gigabyte & followed their trouble shooting procedure (which did not involve clearing the cmos, by the way). It was still dead. As I live less than 10 minutes away from a Microcenter store, I went out and bought another one. My sanity is worth $100 and the machine was running again before bedtime.

    I did not clear the CMOS. Gigabyte tech support said remove it from the case because there might be a short, put one stick of memory in slot 1, plug in a psu just the two plugs that go in the motherbard, plug in a CPU fan and short the two red leads for power on. Nothing happened. Remember, this was not a machine that would not post. The power supply would not turn on.

    I have yet to decide if I will RMA the board to have a spare. Sometimes Mastercard is the solution.
