I have an ECS K7S5A (SiS 735 chipset) which I bought in September 2001 and is failed on me the other day. I was just using the computer and it went totally blank, shut it down, waited, then it worked, gone after 5 min and never came back. I tried stripping it down to just the Video card, RAM, CPU and MB but nothing(I get power, but no beep codes, display or activity). THen just the CPU and MB, still no beeps. Changed the power supply, no effect. Changed the CPU, no effect, then tried my CPU in another system, and that worked ok, so I'm almost 100% sure it's the MB. Does it sound that way to anyone else? I just wanna be sure before I pay for shipping to repair it. Is there anyway to be sure?
Also, shipping is about $10 CDN. Does anyone know about ECS's warranty reputation? Like how long they take, if they'll actually fufill the warranty, etc. Thanks.
