Ok so I ran into a problem where the M17x R2 will not power on. So I started small to solve the problem.
First I bought a new power adapter for it
2nd, I bought a new power bar
3rd I bought a new video card cause I was thinking maybe one of them was bad.
4th I replaced the entire motherboard
Once I put the new motherboard and have triple checked that everything is connected right and I get nothing. No signs of even wanting to boot. Is there something I could be missing here?
If the RAM was bad would it still power on? That's the only other thing I can think of. Or could the CMOS battery cause this issue as well?
There's nothing worse then replacing a motherboard and not having it work. Any help would be great before I just decide to dump the entire system.
Thanks in advance!
