Is my board dead now? / What to do ?
HISTORY Chaintech vnf3-250 - sempron 754 - 2275 - 285 X 8 memory @ 189.6 222-5, multi htt at 3x this is on an ide hd.
Ok so I reloaded on a sata .
It took a few tries to get it on but I was able to get the overclock back and get into windows for a few minutes.
AND THEN.........IT HAPPENED.........
Then lock up/ reboot fans spin / no beeps / remove usb drive / reseat video and memory, remove power - reset bios w/ cmos jumper, disconnect hd / still no response at all except all fans run and cd and floppy have power/ remove battery , replace battery / still no beeps Is there anything else to try before going to the local shop to have the board and cpu tested - at least thats free.
Assuming the processors good would it be wisest to switch to another board now and not worry about making the chaintech work -
if the sata thing is an nf3 bug and can be solved with an add in sata card - thats okay but I'm pretty pissed now and don't want to set this up with the add in card an find out there's some other problem lying in wait for me.
If I have to rma both maybe I should just switch to a 939 chip and the asrock 939dual ( which may become a rare animal if nvidia makes uli stop making the chipset on it ).

I have had two bad SATA drives; drove me nuts before I found out they were bad. Anyway to check the HDD first?
