Thread: Computer problem--Please help!




  1. #1

    Default

    I have put together a new computer... using an Intel D850EMV2 motherboard, 512MB of compatible PC-800 RDRAM, Soundblaster Audigy sound card, p4 2.53ghz, 80GB hard drive, CD-R, DVD... Everything is assembled... I turn on the power... I get no error beeps... However, no picture shows up on my monitor! The monitor just keeps the blinking orange standby light... and never powers up when I press the computers' on switch. . .

    What could be the problem??

    Nope. . . I have two brand new video cards I tried... Ti4400, and a Ti4600... the fans come on in both of the cards... But still no picture.

    Have you tried a different monitor or yours on a different comp?

    Also it could be a jumper setting.

    Does everything spin up compared to a normal computer, or is it just all the fans / power supply and a couple lights here and there?

    It seems like everything's running just fine. . . All the fans and everything start spinning... Processor fan, case fans, etc... All the lights on the motherboard are on... The CD and DVD drive light up... and it sounds like it's running normal... But there's no picture on the monitor... I have 8 monitors laying around, I get no picture on any of them...

    Hmmm... jumper setting... I don't know what jumper setting would cause the monitor to not come on... But I haven't checked that out... I'll give it a shot...

    Any chance the mounting tray for the mobo could be misaligned with the case? That could cause the video card to pull out of the AGP slot when you secure the card with the screw.

    I've seen it happen, just the other day in fact --- Oh dopey me!

    Checked... That's not it... Video card is securely in place

    So what you're saying is that everything spins up and you get nothing? I'm guessing here, but it could be your RAM / CPU not seated properly, or possibly not even working.

    Normally, if it were the video card, and you didn't get the little POST beep code, you would still get a beep when the computer displays the POST / Memory test screen. Then you'd hear the HDD shuffling about looking for an operating system...

    The only time I've never heard a beep out of anything was when my CPU was faulty...
