Troubleshooting My Deceased Conroe System ...
Scenario : System won't POST, no beeps, no fans, no nothing ...
Relevant Specs :
Core 2 Duo E6600
Tried so far :
1. Removed CMOS battery; then replaced CMOS battery with new one
2. Multiple good PSU's - incl. 2 Corsairs (rebadged SS's); swapped cords just for fun
3. Multiple good kits of RAM; I have several of these 2 GB kits, tried diff slot arrangements
4. Two good vid cards
5. Removed HSF (Zerotherm BT92 (?) "butterfly" + MX-2). All looked OK, even after almost 5 years. Cleaned everything and re-pasted.
I don't have a spare CPU or mobo to swap those components IN/OUT. Is there anything I missed that doesn't require these swap-outs ??? No visible damage of any kind to the mobo, physical or electrical.
