    Exclamation GA-EP45-UD3P Gets NO power. Completely Dead?

    Good Day

    Background of issue:

    This morning I rebooted my computer as I do every morning just to freshen things up. When it shut down however, it did not come back on. Pushing the power button had no effect whatsoever. I checked to make sure the power cables were still firmly attached and the power strip didn't get turned off. Nothing seemed to work so I decided to open it up and check the internal connections.

    Everything seemed to be exactly as it should be but still no power.

    Steps taken:

    I tested the PSU with the standard paperclip test and it powers up without issue. I then tested it on another PC and that PC boots fine. So the PSU is not an issue.

    I put the PSU back into the non booting PC, made sure the 20+4 was connected as well as both the CPU power cables to their respective proper locations. Still nothing.

    I then pulled the entire thing apart. I have removed all components except for CPU (previously I removed, re-thermal greased, and replaced it)

    I have the motherboard set on an anti static surface with the 20+4 and the two 4 pin CPU adapters plugged in. I have tried both having the case hooked to it so i could power up via the power switch as well as removing the case switch wire and simply crossing the power switch pins to make a circuit. Still nothing at all.

    And by nothing I mean absolutely nothing, no lights, no beeps, no fan twitch. Nothing.

    At this point do I assume its just a dead MoBo and ask for RMA?

    I'm not a novice at PC builds by any means, but this issue has me pretty stumped. I know I cant expect the PC to boot without Video and Ram but I certainly should get fan movement when the power is applied.

    Any suggestions are very welcome at this point!

    I havent tried a different PSU since I tested this PSU on a different computer with succesful results, as well as I am able to power the PSU by bridging the switching circuit. To my knowlegde there is no inline fuse with this PSU

    It was the same cord. I havent tried leaving the battery out, but will give it a shot now and get back to you in 30 mins. Thanks for the input thus far.

    its strange that not even the fan or mb lights are coming on,try unplugging cpu power leads on the mb and booting see if anything happens then,if not i would say mb is faulty

    also did you makesure all your front panel power wires are firmly attached to mb?? the wires coming from pc case to the mb esp the on/off/power button wires??

    Still nothing after that. I guess at this point I just have to say that the motherboard failed. I even tried a different working CPU just for kicks and got the same result. The removed cpu booted fine in my other pc.

    I guess I have been extremely lucky thus far tho since in 15+ years of building my own computers I have never had a compnent of any type faill on me.

    I won't be buying a lotto ticket today. Thanks for your help attempts. It is appreciated!

    did you check pc case front power wires were attached securely? is the board still under warranty? ifso then its not so bad other than having to wait for an rma
