If you get 'clicking and popping' when you switch the Multia on (but
bothing further happens) then yuo may want to check out the
power-cabling. I had a similar thing; wriggling the power cables
sometimes helped to get it to boot again, but in the end I had to
rewire the cables from the powersupply to the motherboard. Probable
cause was stressing the cables to much when sliding out (partially)
the motherboard with power-cables still attached. Look at the power
plugs that plug onto the motherboard; mine were slightly brown due to
overheating as the cables had thinned out...

Since replacing the power-cabling my Multia has been up for almost
three months as my home-router (running even without fans --
underclocked and in a cool place, but still...)
