ASUS m2n sli deluxe mobo problem. possibly cpu
here's a little bit of background information about the machine and it's past.
i just built the machine last july. it ran perfect for about two months before it died. the computer would not turn on. i checked the power supply with a tester and it looks good. i RMA'd my mobo back to ASUS and they shipped a brand new mobo back. the new mobo failed. DOA? or maybe it's another issue?
the power LED on the mobo blinks when it should either be ON or OFF, never blinking. there are no error codes or anything for the light.
i *****ed to someone at ASUS and they're sending me another one. i read around the web and it seems like ASUS might have had a bad batch of mobos go out, specifically through newegg.
could the cpu be shot? if so, i've been using the stock heatsink, so it should be under warranty for 5 years.
hopefully someone knows what's up. i'm DYING to get this beast back up and running.
