Default $10 For Who Solves This!!!

Ok heres the deal. I just started puttin together a sys for a friend 2nite. I got everythign in and turned it on. The monitor doesnt show up, the dvd led, hdd, power, and media card reader led all stay solid. the hard drives make a quick sound at beg of boot like it checks to see if os is on it. I am using the onboard vga right now until i get os installed. i have also tried pci card.

ok so yeah it doesnt do a **** thing. just sits there with most of the lights on. i think it has something to do with motherboard. the only way to turn off system once its on is hold down power button for a few secs. and reset button doesnt even work.

it is a 945 board with pentium d 930 proc and 512 ddr2 mem

if the reset button doesnt work then you've not connected it properly.

check all power sockets are connected to mb

Hello,

What motherboard do you have?

Do you get any beep sounds when you power on the pc?

Are you sure you're RAM is completely compatible?

Try reseating the heatsink and make sure you have thermal paste

And then make sure you have all the power connections into the motherboard.

make sure all the cords from your power supply are connected to your motherboard, i had this problem before, cause there are xtra cords your motherboard needs, my has a total of 3 connecting to the motherboard alone. if you do not do this, your computer will power up but no display.



edit : nevermind lol. never buy intel
