Anyone ever fry a motherboard from static? I turned off my PC this morning, because our power company notified us that the power would be off for maintenance. when the power was back on, I walked over to my PC, and when I pushed the power button, I got a static shock - and a dead PC. I pulled and tested the power supply (good), and checked the case switch with a meter (also good).
I believe there was an LED on the motherboard that was always on, but there's nothing now. So I'm assuming dead motherboard, correct? I'm going to buy a replacement on Ebay later today. Hopefully the CPU is OK, because it looks like a socket 939 X2 goes for more on Ebay than a new one.
