I would have re-capped it from the start, if the board was important to me. I have an Asus P4 board in the basement with capacitors that may as well be olives, but even if I resurrected it with hours of soldering, I would have no purpose for a 2.3GHz 32 bit system.

How does replacing caps, even all the caps, on a motherboard take hours?

Lack of decent equipment multiplies the time it takes to perform any task. Lack of gainful employment exponentially extends the amount of time it takes to acquire such, while simultaneously erasing the motivation to do so.

Hi,

Help,I recently buy a Asus P5A-B and it doesn't work
When I push the power button ON, the fan of the cpu turn ON but I have nothing on screen, no beep on startup and no POST. The screen is blank.
I have try with different RAM, PSU and CPU (AMD and Intel), I have the same result.
The CPU seems to be work, because it is hot.

Do you think that the MB need to be recap ?

Thanks

Have you done a thorough visual inspection of the board before committing it to a build?

Could you upload some clear pics of the board? Specifically of anything that might look as if damaged.

Since you bought the board, it may have damaged traces or the pins of the chipset may be damaged or bent.

This would be my best guess, seeing as other troubleshooting has proven unsuccessful.

Yes, the board seems to be in perfect state.
I upload pics tonight
