Was building my new computer, had everything working, windows installed, most things setup how I liked...
Only problem was the south bridge was running hotter than I'd like (about 80C) and the onboard sound wasn't working (Device object not present when I tried to install the drivers?)
Seemed like a complex ridiculous problem to try solving when I was reading about it, so I decided to get a sound card.
When I get back from the store with my sound card, my computer is off.
And will not turn back on.
The little green light on the mobo lights up and stays green, however, I get no spinning fans, no bios, no response whatsoever when I hit the power button, even once I disconnect all 'extra' parts.
So at this point, I'm pretty sure this means my motherboard is fried, but considering I've never encountered something like that before, I'd like to make sure that is indeed the issue before I start sending parts back.
Here's a list of my components, if it helps any...
