Like a year back , I built my desktop computer at home. My desktop configuration is:
processor: Intel Coer2Duo E6600
Mobo: Intel DG965WH
HDD: 300GB SATA
memory: PNY 5300 (512mbx2)
Optical drive: 2 x DVD writer
Floppy disk: 1
Video card: on Board
Sound card: On Board
All of sudden my computer died and it will not boot. Neither it will produce any display. I have tried various way:
Removed all memeory, and boot, to hear beep sound, but no luck
remove all H/W perpehral DVD drive, floppy, HDD, Memory, but no beeps neither BIOS booting
removed, CMOS battery and kept for 3 hours , while all peripehral disconnected, but then also no luck to hear beep or see video
Tried putting each peripehral one by one, starting with memory, then HDD then optical drives, but no luck
I contacted INTEL tech support, and they say it can be either Processor or Motherboard.
My question is how do I determine which one? I can take to compouter store but hey will charge around $70-80, and 2 days turnaround time.
Is there any way to excatly tell who is bad?
