    Whatever else was wrong, when I took the motherboard out of the case and hooked it onto my test setup, no POST.

    Found a new AM3+ motherboard-Biostar TA970 on Ebay for $65. Came in yesterday. Hooked it up this morning and POST just fine.

    Guess I’ll put it back in the case and reinstall the OS later today.

    I hate having to change out my motherboard.  I put this one is about 4 years ago, and it’s holding up so far (knocking on wood).  Before that I ended up changing out the motherboard 3 times in 5 years.  :(

      That one lasted about 9 years. I figure if I can get that many more years out of the new one I won’t complain.
