Asus Degatto Woes

Degatto broke down yesterday... No power, wouldnt turn on... Hopefully its just a power problem...



Update:


no, according to the technician it wasn't the power adaptor.. So am afraid ist something internal... syet! the entire board needs replacement! i can already hear my malnourished pockets screaming in agonizing pain... ironic since i just sold my old desktop a few weeks back so am literally naked... i'll try to buy a lotto ticket today because me thinks i direly need it.... *hikbi*

It just stopped working? A power surge perhaps?

could be... but was using a surge suppresor the time it was still working and later on when it no longer works... anyway banbros said it would cost me at 15k at the minimun for a board replacement... i guess i get what i paid for... i seem to regret now not waiting/saving a bit longer for an ibm branded one with those extended 3 year warranties... *sigh*...

Thanks, but I've sold my Degatto months ago. I'm now using a Micro ATX desktop PC.

good for you...

i think even pc's nowadays need reliable surge suppresors...

Looking at buying a used Degatto for about $600.00, beginning to think, it is a bad move.

Went to Asus website to findout more, they aren't evening mentioning it , in all the searches I done. Seems like they wiped their hand clean of this type of PC.

for whats it worth, the replacement motherboard seems to be running fine for more than a year now. the degatto is still working well up to now.

Do you have any links to where i could get info on this machine.
Is it worth the buy ?

Can I still get motherboard for this PC and how much ($) ?

Thanks for you input.
