Motherboard won't power up the supply

    I have an old PC with an ASUS P4T-E motherboard. It was retired a year or two
    ago when I built my new PC. I just got it out and tried powering it up. The LED
    on the board lights up, but pushing the on button or shorting the PWRON pins
    does nothing. I tried it with another supply - same result. It seems like
    something has died while it was stored. Can anyone offer me any suggestions as
    to what to look for?

    look at the tops of the capicitors and around the board below them for brown
    oiley substance.

    No sign of any problem there. They all look like new

    Can't hurt to try, but I don't think it's getting far enough to use the CMOS. I
    don't even get a voltage spike on my DVM on 5V or 12V.

    Awesome! It worked. I just learned something new. Many Thanks.

    Old battery was .1V.

    I love usenet.
