hi all.. my asus A7V8X-X motherboard, athlon xp 2400+ cpu, 512mb DDR pc3200 ram, maxtor 80gb hard drive, raidmax 350w power supply, mitsumi 52x cdrw, geforce4 128mb ti4200, audigy 2 was working fine until one day i went to turn it on and all the fans and drives appeared to be working normally, only there was no video signal and no power to the keyboard or mouse and no startup beep. i troubleshooted the problem and deduced that it must be the cpu so i bought a new amd athlon xp 2500+ (having already melted one 2400+ and thinking it might be a problem with the particular chip) and installed it with all the current components. of course it did nothing new.. still no beep but everything seemingly working.. so i took out each piece one by one and tried each time until there was nothing connected to the board except the cpu and fans and still it did nothing.. so i thought it must be a problem with the motherboard, so i bought a new asus A7V8X-X and installed it with nothing but the athlon xp 2500+ and again tried it.. much to my surprise..nothing happened. i have run out of ideas and almost out of money so some advice would be much appreciated

Hi,

Sounds like this one might be a real pain to find. Anyhow, since you know about troubleshooting, take this motherboard out of the case and set it on a piece of cardboard or other non-conductive surface. Then take out everything except one piece of ram, the CPU, heatsink and fan connected to the motherboard, and the on/off switch wires. See what happens. If it doesn't shut down, then start adding pieces like the video card one by one, etc. etc. If it does boot and work as you add, best start looking for some type of grounding from the motherboard to the case or the motherboard posts. That is what I would do.
