be careful lockie, you hit the "post topic" button instead of "post reply". like i said try removing the motherboard and placing it (including graphics card etc and everything else attached like hdd's) on the anti-static bad and turn the power on. a common problem is that the electrical contacts on the back of a motherboard short out against the metal of the case.
