Motherboard Broken?

Arrrgggghhhhh, ever since i purchased my motherboard (Asrock Conroe 945-DVI) the picture's not worked on the motherboard, think i accidentaly caused it to happen myself, but i wasn't bothered as i was using a graphics card (Ati x550), this was working fine up until the other week, i though the graphics card had blown, so i bought a new one and this does not work, nore does the onboard vga/as rock dvi card supplied, could it be the motheboard. as when i tried plugging in a ps2 keyboard, the green lights did not come on. :( hopefully it aint, but if it is, time to upgrade some more i guess.

ooh an hour, tried it for around 30 seconds, thanks i'll give it ago.

i've also tried dissembling the whole thing and putting it back together.

I assume you have tested this on more than one monitor? Just a shot in the dark, but just in case.

Don't remove the battery, use the 'clear CMOS' jumper instead (consult the manual for where this is and how to use it...)

Have you checked the "beeps" when the PC is starting up
1 short beep Normal POST - system is ok
2 short beeps POST Error - error code shown on screen
No beep Power supply or system board problem
Continuous beep Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem
Repeating short beeps Power supply or system board problem
1 long, 1 short beep System board problem
1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA)
1 long, 3 short beeps Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA)
3 long beeps 3270 keyboard card

there seems to be no beeps, just clicks, i know for one the power supply is fine, as it is only around 6 months old, and the pc still turns on fine.

upon further inspection i have a feeling it's something to do with these bent pins & what appears to be some thermal grease stuck i spotted inside the socket, which worked fine before taking my processor out. am i right in thinking this is the problem as there is no beeps?

Don't want to ask - but I know I should - how on earth did you manage to bend the pins and get thermal grease all over the place.

I have a feeling you are looking at a new motherboard - I assume the processor is OK?

I feel for you - it looks an expensive board

it's not grease, it's a big lump of dust, which i dunno how got there. i don't have a clue how the pins bent, just took my processor out (which is fine) and there it was :( luckily it wasn't expensive, paid 20 quid from a nice chap on here, it's only micro atx (my case aint big enough for full on atx) oh well, looks like a new one for me with hd & 8gb of ram support :P

Take me through what happens, step-by-step once you turn the power on please.
What do you see/not see?

Other than than that check all seating of components and cables inside and out.
Have you gone back to the old graphics card and tried that again? Does it work still?

I don't know why you've done all that!
I thought you were simply replacing the graphics card?!
#12
Lick the pins... lol.

See if you can find a very small tool to straighten the pins (something like a eyebrow pick) although do this only when nothing else works because me thinks you'll break one off :lol:

So lick it first and see if that helps.

ha ha lick the pins, im not that stupid.

this really has got on my titts to the extreme. after replacing the motherboard, and graphics card and installing a new processor (needed some upgrades anyway), i've figured out it's only the cheapest thing i could have replaced. the power supply. which i'm not sure how it's not working, as it turns the pc and memory card reader on, just not the graphics or keyboard :@ this is a dribbletake as i'm now a chunk of money down, and on the urge for more upgrades, now my pc supports upto 8gb of ddr3 ram, although i dont have any more money to spare :(
