I'm looking to replace an Asus p5kpl mobo www.asus.com/Motherboards/P5KP…
which has seemingly died or thereabouts. It's weird actually, because I don't get any beep code. (Yes I have a buzzer on the board and if I e.g. remove the graphics cards power supply, then it does give me the appropriate beep code). My mouse and keyboard seem to register, fans spin up normally - the green mobo led comes on indicating it's getting power - but no video output or disk access.
I've already tried 2 other known-to-be-working graphic cards, changing the monitor, resetting the cmos, changing the battery, as well as the PSU, but no dice, it just won't display anything on-screen, no post, nothing. This is actually the second mobo of this type that went bad on me in the last couple of years, the first was the mini-atx version which I replaced (very successfully) with a gigabyte ga-g41m-combo.
The processor is an (ageing, but still serviceable) Core duo - not sure of all the details though since the board won't effectively start.
I see that that particular gigabyte series is probably not available any more and core duo support in general, so thought I'd post here and get some feedback from you guys as to a good choice here - I'd prefer to be able to use that generation of graphic cards, but wouldn't mind going for some ddr3 memory. Kind of lost on this one. Thanks in advance for any ideas
