- ECS K1N Extreme - failure or not?

post test. I have removed the board and everything on it except the AMD64
+4000 and the PSU connected to the main socket and the aux 12v socket.
With or without a video card/lcd or single memory strip there is no post
beep from the speaker connected to the mb spk socket and no illumination at
all on the screen..
All the PCI lights are flashing and the memory safety light is on.
Last unusual symptom was a clicking boot HDD but I do not have any drives
connected in this test.
The NFORCE4 chip is cooled with a third party large heatsink/pipe cooler
which I used to replace the very loud electric fan. I have of course
cleaned and renewed the compound on both the CPU and Nforce chip
Must I assume that the board is fried?
Re: ECS K1N Extreme - failure or not?
All caps appear fine. I have a "top hat" bios firmware resetter chip which
came with the MB but I am reluctant to use this as it then requires a web
download of the original firmware. I have cleared the bios memory but
still no sign of post activity from the speaker or screen.
