Gigabyte MB dead to AC power after the CPU fan conector got lose!!
Posted on 2011-02-22
I just added 12 GB of RAM and didn't notice that I had pulled the CPU H20 collant fan connector off the three pin plug.
The Computer powered up for about thirty seconds and then turned itself off.
I unplugged the power cord,I found the cause, (the CPU Fan cable) and reattached the fan lead.
Reconnected AC BUT THE COMPUTER is Dead. NO Power through the board (it seems). No lights, no beeps, nothing. I pulled out the CMOS battery -- nothingl
The motherboad is only six months old, but is the warranty good? Gigabyte's web site says to contact the seller (Amazon). Why?
The CPU, an Intel i 7 920, also less than six month old,was sold by Amazon?
Can I apply for a warranty on either or both? And do I go through Amazon.
I need help today, because I will have to overnight new parts -- ASAP. PLEASE HELP
