did my motherboard just die?

I have an asus m2r32-mvp that's worked fine for months before I turned it off last night.

I turned it on today and nothing. The video card and heatsink fans turn on and spin at max speed (they use to slow down after the post) but now there's no beep and the monitor never reacts. I've changed the ram, processor, power supply, video card, unplugged everything not essential, took everything out of the case and reset the cmos, but nothing changes.

Is there some mystery problem I can't think of or should I relocate this motherboard to a dumpster?

    If it's only months old I would relocate it to Asus tech support. Because if you aren't even beeping then you've got about nowhere to go with that.

    Well if you did all that then it must be dead. I usually take a component out and test the pc until I find the culprit but you already did that. Anything unusual happen to it while you were using it?

    Sounds like mobo.

    My experience with tech support is something along the lines of "unplug your modem for 30 minutes then call us back so we can tell you to do it again" but maybe asus is different.

    The only thing unusual that happened was my utility company turned off the power for a few minutes during the morning and installed a new meter or something, but I don't think that's a real killer of motherboards.

    If you can't even POST or beep they will not give you that line. No matter what is wrong with your shit you should at least get that far.

    Na, I dont think that loss of power could mess up the mobo that bad. Maybe the power supply is bad. If its not the power supply then go and buy a new mobo.

    You've changed out pretty much every other component in the system. Your motherboard is dead. RMA that sucker.

    Does it have an nVidia 700 series chipset? If so, you may just need to update the bios. The exact same thing pretty much happened to me and it turned out that it was a common problem.

    Can't upgrade the BIOS if its not even getting a POST beep.

    I would think its still under warranty and they will replace it for you if you call.

    ASUS motherboards have a three year warranty, so that is probably the case.

    had the same issue with an Asus p4p800 mobo.

    Left the room and it was on, came back and it was off. no video responses. replaced everything but the mobo.

    Turned out that the mobo's AGP slot fried out. 100$ later i had a p4p800-e deluxe installed. booted up like a champ.
