    Hello,

    I have a Gigabyte GA-8vm533 motherboard here that after having powersupply
    problems, began having problems with posting after I replaced the power
    supply. The system powers on and instantly goes to the memory count/test
    part of the POSTing and hangs each time. I've replaced memory sticks, tried
    different memory slots, same thing happens each time regardless. I even
    press DEL really fast trying to get into the BIOS, however it still hangs.
    Does this mean the motherboard has suffered damage from the previous failing
    power supply??

    I even tried resetting the CMOS settings but that did no good.

    Help!

    Brad
