I've currently got a problem with a computer I'm repairing.
The problem I'm having is the jpw1 (used by the p4 connector) on the motherboard. If the p4 connector is connected to the jpw1 port, the computer does not turn on. However if disconnected, the computer will turn on (i.e. cooling fans, lights, drives etc.)
It was working beforehand but after a routine shutdown of windows update, it seems it doesn't want to turn on. I've disconnected everything that's unnecessary (1 stick of RAM, CD drives etc.) but still with the same problem. I've used 2 different PSUs of the same power but still nothing. :sigh:
Is the motherboard salvageable? :4-dontkno
