Windows 7: Need Diagnostic Help - Seems to be Dead

You'll need to weigh the cost for replacement and risk of reinstalling it yourself against having a shop do it, against buying a new prebuilt computer which often costs out to be less or the same.
That seems to be it, although (and I hate to sound stupid) I fail to see the word 'Violet' anywhere on the board. It does however, have rev 6.0.1 in small letters after the M2N78-LA.

Seems like an awful shame to just toss this on the scrap-heap, though.

Apparently hechoed en Mejico. I wasn't aware any mobos were being built there:

I wonder if there is a way to determine if it's the mobo or the processor as replacing the processor chip would be a lot easier.

Processor failures are so rare that it's very very unlikely it's CPU, assuming it hasn't been overclocked and abused. I'd assume motherboard if PSU has been eliminated.

I don't know of a quick way to confirm that with ordinary tools and no second system to swap the CPU into.

Once again at the risk of sounding electronically challenged, is there a way to determine what component of the motherboard has failed? And if so, is there a way of repairing that one part?

I'm sure there is----if you have the right tools and the skill and are indifferent to the cost. A skilled repair person could likely salvage a lot of motherboards. Even then, I don't know that it would be cost-effective to do so.

In reality, motherboards are rarely repaired--at least by users or ordinary repair shops. The cost of labor alone makes it prohibitive, not that it's impossible.

You could look for an obvious sign, such as bulging capacitors (those things that look like batteries). But even if identified, it wouldn't likely change your situation.

You might run this Intel tool to diagnose processor problems:

I appreciate the thought, but if you remember, the PC chassis and processor fans start, run for a few seconds and then stop. I have no video.

If you know of some way to run that tool on a PC in the condition I described, my hat's off to you. And please, let me know how.
