After screwing up my friend's first mobo (a 1.6a) I ordered a new mobo/HDD from eBay to fix the problem. It turned out to be a 1.6b. I put the new motherboard in but it will not boot at all! the power LED doesn't come on at all! I out the old one back in and at least the LED flashed.... What could my probem be? Is the new mobo dead? Thanks.

Yes, you have to replace that transistor, it is a common problem with 1.6's.

yeah, lol, that's what I was thinking of doing. I allready pulled it off the old one, but I haven't put it on the new one yet. because I might be able to return it without the possibility of screwing up the new one even more.

Well, I said screw the eBay guy and I took the piece from my old motherboard and put it on the new one and it started up on the first try!
