  1. ASUS Maximus VIII GENE Motherboard, Core i5 CPU Lights up, No Power Up


    A friend of mine asked me to install Win10 on his son's computer..

    It was a new MB that he had just installed into a new gamer case...

    Motherboard won't boot up.. The board LEDs and buttons light up, but there is no power up. Fans don't come on... Nothing..

    I suspect one of two things..

    A non compatible CPU or a short when the son put a mounting stud where there was no hole in the MB...

    Pictures of the MB, the CPU and where the board may have been shorted...

    I have tried resetting the CMOS, total power shutdown (pull the CMOS Battery, etc etc..) with no luck...

    Am I looking at a toasted MB???

    Thanx for any assistance...

    :)

    The 9th gen processors that are currently available is still the P0 stepping and will eventually be replaced with the new R0 stepping processors.

    Here are the screenshots I took from Gigabyte's website

    Gigabyte redacted the new R0 processors from the list a day later.
