@Alphanumeric: Yes, but it won't fit my case, are you suggesting to check for a possible PSU issue or under-wattage?

Hi PwnFrnzy,

I doubt power is your issue. Boards don't really need much to POST. That socket A of yours has really served you well; outlasting all others of it's kind. It might be time to let it go in peace?

Its possibly a BIOS setting relating to the harddrive... Have you switched it between AHCI and compatibility modes? Any luck with either of them?

Does the MB have any leaking or bulging capacitors. If so then very good chance the MB is dead unless they are replaced.

I'm thinking it could be a failing power supply. I PC can do some really weird things when the power supply is messed up. They can fail just like anything else. It doesn't have to be mounted in the case to do a quick test. Can't hurt to rule it out and confirm it is actually the motherboard that has failed.

@xarden: I tried that the first chance I got to when it would actually go into the BIOS, still no luck.

@Glhs958: I took a long look, nothing looks to be abnormal on the board itself.

@Alphanumeric: The PSU is just as old as the computer and its original parts dating back to 2002 or 2003, I believe this may be the issue.

@Fumz: I guess you are right, the Socket A served it's time well, after forcing it to deny death multiple times I guess it's time to let it go in peace. Like my dad said, "Give it a hail-mary full of grace and strip it for parts."
I'm going to ask my dad to help me out with buying an all new computer.

This is the computer I selected, I'm giving my dad $250 and he will pay off the rest, then I have to do manual labor to pay him back.

Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AM3400-U4132 (PT.SF702.014) Desktop PC Phenom II X4 955(3.2GHz) 6GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity AMD Radeon HD 6570 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

It will last me awhile hardware-wise and will keep my happy. And it's currently on a $120 discount

I brought it back to life!
It was the cable the connects the hard drives to the motherboard! It was just that simple problem the whole time!

Well done.

It proves once again that we forget the simple things at our peril.

Pleased to hear your computer is now up and running and thanks for letting us know.
