What type of PSU, How many total watts and how many amps on 12v rail and have you checked it out as being the possible culprit?
i just got a new Asus A8V motherboard, and its not booting. it turns on when i press the button, but i get no signal sent to the monitor, and i get a faint beep that sounds like it might be posting. here's what im running;
Asus A8V K8T800 PRo mobo
AMD Athalon 4000+ Clawhammer 939 pin
Chaintech GeForce 5500fx - AGP 4x/8x
CORSAIR ValueSelect 1GB (2 x 512MB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400
so, i got the board monday, i plugged everyhting in im not getting anything. any ideas on what the problem might be? i know that the ram isnt on the preffered list, but im not sure how picky this board is.
here is a little bit more info. prior to monday, i was runnign the same setup except i had a MSI k8n Neo2 Platinum mobo. for a while i was having a problem where it was locking up durring boot, or the monitor would switch off. last week i lost video. i had run some ram tests before and they both passed, so i ruled them out as the problem.
last week, i lost my video again, and it didnt come back when rebooting. i ran down to staples, thinking that my vid card may have burned out, and got another GeForce 5500. when i put the new card in, i still was getting nothing. eventualy, i put the old card back in and after i tried i a few more times, the video came back. this let me rule out the video card being bad, becasue i figgured the new one would have worked if that was the problem.
this also led me to the conclusion that the MSI mobo was bad. but now that i have the ASUS in and still am having no luck getting it working, im hoping that its not somehting like the processor.
Anyway, i know that was a bit long winded, but i wanted to get all the info in there. any one have any ideas, or have a similar experince?
