In cases like this the general procedure is to break the system down to only the components needed for POST. One of the things I like to also do is just remove all the RAM and see if you get the proper "no RAM" error tones. If you don't get even that much, then you either have a bad motherboard, didn't connect the PC speaker, or have a bad CPU.
If you get the proper error tone, then you add things back ONE AT A TIME, and test before adding anything else. So you might add ONE stick of RAM and see if the unit will give you the POST beeps. If it does, shut it off and add another stick of RAM, then test for POST beeps. Rinse and repeat with additional components until either the unit works or you find the point at which it's failing.
So, the psu on my old pc died and I went to build a new one.
I first used the same cpu, gpu, and hd but had to buy new ram and a new cpu cooler to fit the mobo.
Before, the computer did not give a video signal (it died after a power surge) and the cpu fan did not spin and neither did my video card fan. I suppose it could have been the motherboard.
Anyways, I purchased some new ram. It was labeled "AMD" or whatever, but I don't think that matters. It was this one:
So now, my new computer has the same problem. I put my old cpu in there with a new cooler, put in my new ram and connected the hd and video card.
My monitor decided to die the minute I ordered the new parts so I ordered a new monitor as well. I am currently using it with vga with my laptop.
My new computer has a vga and dvi built in video so I tried both connections and both dvi on my gpu as well as both built in with gpu removed and still nothing.
I ended up getting a new cpu as well and that changed nothing.
So now, I have a new cpu, new cooler, new ram, new mobo, new psu, new case. Only the same gpu and hd are being used. I believe it should boot up without both and at least show me a load up screen for BIOS.
But so far nothing and I tried 2 different dvi cables as well.
What do you guys think?
