New Case, No Boot.
 
Well a friend of mine just bough a new case Antech Lanboy 350, we changed all his gear into in and now it doesnt boot.

hmmm specs are:

p4s800
2.4Ghz p4
120 HD
6600gt AGP.
1gb **** ram.


The monitor turns on for about 5 seconds then it goes into standby mode.

Got any ideas?

How many times does it beep when you turn the power on?

Simon 09-15-2005 01:31 AM

well atm it doesn't post at all. we've tried just using barebones, with 1 stick of ram, 6600GT and no ide devices, and it still doesn't post. we've run out of ideas, and the local computer shop doesn't seem to be able to help over the phone.

SamLee0519 09-15-2005 01:38 AM

So it doesn't turn on at ALL?
Like.. the Power supply doesn't even turn on? Or the power supply turns on, but nothing shows up on the screen with no beeps?

That could be a RAM problem. Try to find any backup RAM, or if you dont have one, just buy one so that you can use for the future. Just buy like $20 256mb RAM and test it out.

Even with RAM it still should post? The fans on the CPU GPU and case spin.

Seen this a few times.

Unplug your PSU from your board and every things.
Press the on button a few times.
Plug your PSU back in and see what happens.

With the fact that they are making bugger all margin, a lot of them don't.

Just told him to do this over the fone, and no luck.

Yea, but we bought it from that PC shop we called.

Even if you try to start a computer with NO RAM in it, the MB will beep at you. So I dont think it could be the ram. Is the mobo hooked up to the power right? all connectors plugged in that need to be? Since its all the same hardware and you just changed cases, this is pretty weird. I really have no idea. Let us know if you figure out what it is. My only gues is something is not seated or connected properly. Make sure the graphics card is seated and has power connected if it needs it. I have a feeling its something with the GFX card.
