Hi gang...I hope im posting the right forum.'
Anyway, I started having trouble with my custom builtcompyesterday, it would just shut off....no warning, just completely power off.
This morning I ran CWshredder, Nod32 virus scan (both found nothing). Then I updated and ran spybot search & destroy. I walked back in after starting the prog and the comp is off again. Now it wont power up at all. Nothing.
the power & reset light come on and stay on, but no beeps, nothing on the monitor....just nothing.
any help is GREATLY appreciated.

system is:
Asus a8v-e mobo
antec truepower 2.0 ps
3-512 sticks ram
AMD athlon 64 x2 4800+ cpu
ATI Radeon X800 pro video card
2-160gb samsung HD's

Sounds like a mobo issue.

Here's an update: I've removed everything (cards plugs..all of it) from the mobo, then I removed the mobo from the case.
I then hooked up the 2 mobo plugs from the PS and started it....still nothing.....

It might be worth trying a different PSU, but really sounds like a fault on the motherboard. I'd recommend contacting Asus

Sounds like either the motherboard or CPU are faulty. Try reseating the CPU to see if this makes any difference.
