Has my motherboard died?

Episode 1086 (24:51)

Devon from Corona, CA
Newertech Universal Drive Adapter

Devon thought his video card was failing so he removed it and now he's getting no post codes. Could the motherboard be bad? Leo says it could be a number of things, including loose cables or CPUs, memory etc. He should try reseating everything. Leo says Devon may have also lost the CMOS battery in the process, but that wouldn't fail the post.

Can he take the drive out and put it into another computer? Leo says sure. It's just a hard drive. He can put them into a USB enclosure pretty inexpensively. Or he could pick up a Universal Drive adapter. They're great for getting data off a drive without installing it.
