EPOX 9NPA+ Ultra - dead?

I everybody

i have a Epox 9NPA + ultra for about 6 months

everithing is working fine ,but a few days ago ,wnhen i was starting the system (POST) the power fails

then i restart the system - but nothing happend
no signal of power

I was thinking maybe the PSU is dead,so I take the board of the case and try with another PSU,but the same thing again
the board is dead- no signal of power, the leds on the board do not light up


The PSU is an LC Power 550W

there is no signs of anything burned in the PSU or the board

could this be the bios chip dead?
When the bios is dead is normal the leds on the board do not light up?

thank´s for any help

I fried a BIOS on this board and I was still getting LED codes. Replacing the BIOS chip worked in that situation, but your situation sounds different.

9NPA+ Ultra dead

Hi Xander_Hal

thanks for your anwser

well,you are right - i bought a new bios chip from Epox Europe( Netherlands)
but no luck - the board is dead completely
very strange thing!

solution: i bought a new Asus A8N5X - very cheap -75 euros- and works nice
I´m impressed with the quality and easy of use of the A8N5X - easy instalation,working with no frills!
Normally I think the cheap hardware is no good, but now I´m changing my point of view

stay cool mate

Daniel

Sorry that the EPoX m'board went bad on you, I hope the new one serves you well for as long as you need it to.

You sure there are no components (mosfets in this case) marked D408 that are burned out - perhaps right next to the memory ??
