So I built this for my sons a few years back now, they have since moved onto girls, darn them and so now its my at home system for doing work things and some light gaming. Parts listed
anyway it was starting to lock up to where I decided to update windows on it. the update failed, totally locked up at 75% of downloading files. I rebooted it and I have no BIOS screen at all, no mouse, no keyboard lighting up - nothing. I borrowed a POST test thing from work and hooked it up, it is totally dead with no codes and none of the indicator lights lit up. I am assuming this means that somehow I fried the mother board.
So QUESTION IS do I try to test it another way? or does the POST test really indicate it is dead? and if I do replace it should I get the same board which seems super cheap now or upgrade it with something.
sorry for long message.
thanks in advance
