I seem to recall that before starting that thread and repair, the board might have worked again once or twice before dying completely. But I guess ultimately you are right. By the time I was seriously working on it, the whole thing was pretty dead.

Still, I can imagine it's plausible for a failing voltage rail to cause intermittent POST issues?
