566165, Blinking Power LED on Motherboard
Posted by daniell, Sun Oct-27-19 12:14 PM
Suddenly the computer died. Fans wont go on. Only the power LED on the motherboard blinks. Tested power supply with paper clip. The fan spins. Shorted out motherboard pins with screw driver. No response.
Any insight would be appreciated.

Do you know what make and model of the motherboard? Different mobos have different error codes.

This is an Asus motherboard. I built this computer about 10 years ago.I can't find the manual for it.
Thanks for your reply.

I had a power supply blow taking out my video card several years ago on my Asus Sabertooth board. It would work on a low spec video card but nothing that required any additional power. Luckily both were still in warranty, but it caused some strange symptoms. I was afraid the motherboard had failed for a little while until I started pulling components.

Since the computer is more than 10 years old, I decided to build a new one. I am deciding whether to keep the present case. It is a Lian Li aluminum case. This is the problem. The plastic clips that hold on the front panel have cracked and no longer function. For a set of 4 with shipping will cost me about $20. Also, I want to add a USB 3.0 port. Maybe I should buy a new case. I hate to throw out something that was made so well.

I have several pc. The one assigned to wife uses a Lian Li with the odd configuration. Just love it. I think yours is a keeper.

My problem is the plastic clips that hold the front bezel on the computer. Thanks for your input.

I had an inkling those might not be what you needed. Post the item number/quantity and I'll see if there's a better price somewhere.

This is what I need. Putting sentimentality aside, for $40 I can buy a brand new case at New Egg. It will include The USB 3.0 connection and free shipping.

The shipping will be a little over $5. Also, I will have to spend another $12 to add front USB 3.0 ports. With New Egg's sale, I'll get a brand new case, bigger fans and free shipping for $40.
