how can I test a motherboard "outside" of the case?
Posted on 2010-09-21
I am interested in testing the following motherboard "outside" of the case: MSI KM4M Motherboard: Model MS-6734 Ver 1. If I am not mistaken, a jumper can be used to "jump start" the motherboard if it is place on an off quickly for the pair of pens corresponding to where the power connector goes. However, I am unsure on that part.
The reason I am bringing this up is because the new motherboard I recently purchased does not seem to work either despite of the replacement of the power supply. It has been suggested from a previous post to test the motherboard "outside" of the case just in case the back plate might be shortening it out.
Any shared input or suggestions will certainly be appreciated and welcomed. If more information is needed or should there be any questions regarding what I am wanting to do, please feel free to let me know. And, thanks once again for any attention given to this question.
