    Problems with an ABIT BE6-II V1.0 mobo

    I am having problems with an ABIT BE6-II V1.0 mobo.

    It was working fine for a while, but now when I try to start it up, the HD lights come on, the fans come on but the monitor doesn't turn on.

    When I remove the RAM, it doesn't beep, it does the same as above.

    I have read about the capacitors near the CPU bubbling, but don't know if I am having that problem. I also don't know if the capacitors would cause the problem that I am having.

    Any help would be appreciated!!!

    I have the following system:
    PIII-750 Slot I
    ABIT BE6-II, V1.0 mobo
    512MB PC100 SDRAM(256 MB-Corsair, 128MB-Corsair, 128MB-Generic)
    Windows 2000
    40GB Western Digital HD @ 7200 rpm
    nVidia GeForce4 440 64MBDDR

    that sounds like as if the CPU is toasted

    do you have another CPU to try?

    It would be a first for me to see a toasted Coppermine. They have thermal protection.

    I would assume motherboard.

    So do you think that the motherboard is dead? Are you familiar with the capacitor issue? Could this be causing the problem?

    A high percentage of Abit boards bite the dust due to blown capacitors. Give it a quick visual. Bulging tops, raised/tilting and a brown/black substance at the base are prime indicators. These items can be replaced. You just have to decide if its worth the hassle...

    I looked at the capacitors last night and they are bulging and there is some brownish residue next to them. I guess this board is toast. I am not comfortable with soldering on the motherboard. Thanks for your help.

    By the way, I put in my old Intel board and everything works great. The problem was definitely the leaking capacitors near the CPU on the ABIT BE6-II, V1.0 motherboard.
