  • Wont post to bios?

    Hello ,

    My HTPC has decide to stop working, i have stripped everything out cleared C-MOS and removed battery whilst power unplugged, its been decades since i had this kinda problem, but am i correct in thinking that the motherboard would still posted to bios if everything but the cpu and fan and memory was removed? my head is telling me the board is dead, but want to be sure i have eliminated everything that could stop it from posting before i get a replacement board, cheers

    is there a speaker connected? if so any beeps?
    I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

    Growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional

        Rip apart and rebuild.

        Swap in known working components for current ones (Ram/Psu/Gpu)

        Check existing components on another system. (Ram/Psu/Gpu)

          No beeps usually mean boards toast.

              Try starting it with the motherboard outside of the case on a table or something - make sure something hasn't moved in the case and caused it to short out.
