After New motherboard, PC wont start up?
to cut the long story short, the motherboard and the gfx card on my dads workstation, so i get New motherboard (DFI make) new graphics card, and some new DDR2 RAM. oh and the motherboard is compatible with the CPU (i checked)
so i hook them all up once the parts arrive and it boots up fine but when it gets to windows, it simply doesnt want to boot, i got a BSOD with 0x0000007B i think it was ( cant remember) and so i look it up and its because windows cant find the table or something on the drive, whatever, we needed to reinstall windows anyway, thats not the point. The SECOND time i booted it up, it never should me the screen (i.e. the monitor was in standby, and it never turned on, giving me a POST code of C1 (on this model you can see the POST in a LED display on the motherboard itself) ive checked it works fine w/ my macbook) so i did some research and some guys on a IRC channel working for Leo Laporte (famous radio talkshow host/tech guy) told me it was faulty Motherboard ( >_< ) so i got an RMA, and the new motherboard is all shiny, what not, but now i turn it on, and nothing happens at all, no post no boot no beep.
and im not rocket psychist, but you get me, im sure if i got no post no beeb no boot its not good :/
any suggestions what it may be? ram is out of the question, i tested the old and new one.
(OS on HD is windows XP)
250 GB 7200 RPM seagate i think it is.
2.66 Ghz Pentium 4, HT (its a older cpu yet still supported)
Motherboard is a DFI LANPARTY DK X38-T2R LGA 775 Intel X38 ATX Intel
RAM is CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800
Gfx card is MSI N9600GT 512M OC GeForce 9600 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3
anybody have a clue what is going on?
