I am continuing to poke at some of my salvaged hardware in an attempt to find what should be disposed of.
I have this one ASUS A7V8X-X motherboard. The light on the corner comes on when I plug in the power supply, but attempting to power it on with the button on the case does absolutely nothing. I tried disconnecting the power button switch and shorting out the pins with a paper clip instead, but still – nothing. I also tried two other different power supplies for good measure.
Is it safe to assume that this board is completely kaput? I feel like I'm forgetting something. (It wouldn't be something like RAM or the CPU, because even then at least the power supply fan would start spinning, right?)
This was the system left out in the rain, so a defect would not be at all surprising.
