Hamas' Electronic Bull**** Failure of the Week

Might as well make this a running series.

Previous installments are found here:

Now, my HTPC mobo has shot craps.

Couldn't get a signal to my TV yesterday. Reseated the video card, unplugged the HDMI card, turned everything off and back on.

Nothing.

Tried the on-board video.

Nothing.

Worried/figured it might be the HDMI board on my receiver, but possibly just the cable. Bought a cable tonight for seven bucks. Used a different HDMI port as a workaround the receiver if it was the problem.

Nothing.

Hooked new cable up to the laptop's HDMI output: works perfectly.

At this point I start getting uber ****ing pissed. I put in another PCI-e video card that I know works.

Nothing.

Try the onboard video w/ DVI, HDMI, and VGA, and I get jackshit.

Perhaps it's something with one of the peripherals. I unhook every HDD and optical drive.

Nope.

I move the CMOS jumpers. Take out the battery, disconnect the PSU, and nothing.

Processor and HDDs spin up upon start.

Fortunately, the RMA of a failed MoBo from two weeks ago is coming in this weekend, so perhaps I'll have a working HTPC in a few days.

Oh, and my 360 laser shot craps again today too. Cleaned the lens, put lithium grease on the rails, worm motor, even adjusted the potentiometer.

Replacement motherboard is also DOA. I tried a second power supply, video card, memory, everything.

Won't output video.

Tested the suspected shot video card as well. Works perfectly in another build.

Three failed Biostar boards in two weeks. Has to be some kind of ****ing record.

I'd nuke it from orbit and start over dude. Seriously. I have a remarkably low tolerance for this type of bs.

Throwing shit against the wall, as I'm sure you checked beforehand, but is there an extra standoff in your case that's shorting out your mobo when you install it?

I always default to PSU in a situation like that. A bad PSU can definitely fire up the computer and spin the fans but not POST.

Try a known good PSU before you get too angry.

If not that, then try known good ram, then next is CPU/MOBO

edit: I see you tried PSU. But your saying mobo is DOA now?

Have you tried a known working processor? Whats the socket? I might have something that will fit it just to test.

AM3+ mobo.

I have another AM3+ processor in our desktop. I can pull it to check.

I'd suspect something else in the setup. Power supply, RAM, CPU, wiring, case.. You're defying odds with that many DOAs. Or else you have magnet hands...

You might try and take everything out and test in another case, another PS, etc. Sometimes just taking it out and putting it back in magically resolves things....

I tried the CPU in my desktop. Worked fine.
I tried the RAM in my desktop. Worked fine.
I connected the PSU to an old working build. Fired up.
I took the motherboard completely out of the case to test them, to remove the possibility of a wiring short. Wouldn't post.
I used the power switch wiring from another case.
The mobo from the HTPC has a momentary switch on the board. I plugged it directly into a known working PSU. It still wouldn't post.
I tried the video card in another build. Worked fine. I tried a known, working video card in the mobos in question and they wouldn't output a video signal.
I tried my television. I tried a monitor. I tried a VGA cable, a DVI cable, and multiple HDMI cables on multiple inputs. None of them worked with the mobos in question.

There is literally no other permutation of possibilities I can think of .
