Possible Faulty Motherboard?
Brand : Gigabyte
Model : EP45 - DS3R
Power Supply : 600W
Tool used : Multi-Meter
Using the Multi-Meter I checked to make sure there was power being produced from the power supply, power switch pins on the motherboard, 10 pin power connector.
There was power going to the power switch, so I know the power supply works, but it seems that the power switch pins may not be sending a signal to the motherboard to turn on. I attempted to complete the circuit using a jumper, but the motherboard did not power on (I tried doing the same with my old computer, and it fired up right away). I also attempted to use another power supply that runs my old computer and the same issue as above.
The computer does not turn on even for a split second.
Tried powering on with all the hardware, and with none. No difference.
Is the motherboard faulty, or could it be something else?
