Default Re: Computer stuck at motherboard logo screen

can you start it up with a boot cd or live cd?

Is there a key combination to see the post info instead of the splash screen. That may give some insight.

Tried different sticks of ram in different slots?

Normally I would say clear the CMOS but I see you have done that already. Take it down to the basics (mobo, RAM*1, cpu, graphics) clear the CMOS and try again.

Might be a short somewhere too. Take it out of the case and, like kmote said, down to the basics. I would even try it without the GPU just to see if you get any further.

Good idea with taking it out the case but how is he going to know if it gets any further without a GPU?

You expect crazy motherboard beeps without the gpu. This tells you it is working.

^ right. With just CPU and ram at least you'll get some beeps when it encounters no video device.

So without the video card you get stuck, but you have continuous long beeps? Try it again with the video card in.
