crazy boot problem?!?! HELP
I was going to replace a thermal paste on my new PC, which worked perfectly for last months.
i7 920 @ stock, cooled by Coolermaster V8
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2,
6GB corsair XMS3 RAM @ 1600,
nVidia GTX 275 @ stock,
PSU- corsair TX850
3 HDDs and 2 Optical drives
So I removed the mobo, then cooler, applied the new paste (MX-2). Istalled all stuff back, connected.
Turn on - NOTHING, no POST. Fans spinning (cpu too), though, and mobo has it lights on (besides blue LED under the RAM slots), but thats it. AND the case Power LED and HDD LED are both permanently on,
The video card's fan is not moving, wiredly (it usualy at max speed during the first seconds on boot), but after a minute it gets warmer.
I tried to reset the CMOS, both by jumper and removing the battery - no change
tried another video card (nvidia 6200 LE) - no change
tried to unplug everything - no change.
Also I tried to remove all (CPU too), check for scraches, or anything - all good.
Edit: one optical drive is looks "unpowered" while connected to IDE cable, if disconnected, ok.
So HELP!?, Any ideas, anyone?
