The motherboard I bought as a replacement to the old Sabertooth X58 motherboard recently bit the dust. It does not beep, post and there is no video output; clearing the cmos did not fix this, both the cpu and dram led stays lit. In order to use my system I transferred the cpu and ram to the old motherboard. Problem is this motherboard is plagued by power issues; my system will constantly shut down, there is trouble powering external usb hard drives. Sometimes power draw causes a shut down such as when I go to listen to music, watch a video or play a game stored on my computer. Sometimes the cmos settings, date and time will reset when power is disconnected even if only briefly. Most times the system will power cycle at least twice before finally posting and booting into an operating system. I would like to be able to locate and fix the problem myself as I do not have the money to replace the motherboard but I am not sure what to look for. This Sabertooth X58 does not use standard capacitors so there is no bulging capacitors. My guess is if I am lucky it may be a loose or broken solder joint. What should I be looking for; is it possible for me to fix on my own? I am not sure if Asus will honor the warranty on the other board because I accidentally scraped/scratched the back of the board trying to remove jammed motherboard standoffs. Thanks for any assistance so I can resolve this issue.
