b3b349142yDoes it give you any beep codes? If not you mobo probably died :(
gizmo3399552yYou should indeed check if the motherboard even has a speaker.
Also check the power supply and if possible test it with another working power supply.
You can also try to unplug all peripherals and run it only with ram.
Als try to unplug the ram and see if it beeps then (running with no ram should cause beep codes)
Otherwise it might be a dead motherboard.
Hope it helps.
@rapidslug yup, I've tried clearing the CMOS, no luck :/
The manual suggests that I try unplugging the battery if clearing the CMOS didn't resolve the issue.. now that I haven't tried yet because the battery is located under the big ass GPU
@rapidslug it's an ASUS board which has a CLRTC jumper, moving the CLRTC jumper cap from pins 1-2 to 2-3 would supposedly clear the CMOS
So I installed an internal speaker and turned my PC on, and....
It didn't make any beep at all......
Does it mean my mobo's dead? :")
@rapidslug yup, I have.. I verified that the monitor was working fine by plugging it to my playstation. Then I tried connecting the monitor to the PC using both HDMI and VGA cables, also tried the both the ports on motherboard and on the GPU, still no luck
I think I do have to bring it to a PC repair shop for breadboarding after all..
Anyway, thank you very much for your suggestions! I learned a lot :)
