Got a customer who sent me only the motherboard and said it will not boot, no fans. Is it possible to "Prompt to boot" this board? I have an 80W adapter and battery here, but no shell to put it in. Just need to make sure I fix the fans not kicking on apparently.
Not sure honestly. Was just sent in and customer said it would not turn on.... just died. Board looks clean, no water damage or broken off components. I get a green light when connected to the OEM AC adapter and no battery and the same solid green light when connected to a battery.
I connected the MB to the battery I had in stock from a used system and let it sit plugged in over the weekend.... came in this morning and the fans were spinning at 100%. Still have too hook up a screen and keyboard, but there is life.... Charging light stays green no matter what though. May try an SMC reset to see if it changes anything.
