How to tell if ur motherboard is dead?
athalon xp 2000
512 mb pc 2700 generic ram
mx440 8x agp 128mb
60 gb western digital harddrive
350 watt powersupply
some generic cdrom drive
heres the deal: this is all older components of a known to work computer that has been upgraded. i decided to build a new comp out of all of this stuff. slap it all in my case and hook up everything
and i get harddrive spinning, fans spinning, led lights on my board say the system is booting, ram is good and pci slots are good. no post no beeps[not sure if my speaker is workin]. tried clearin csmos, ram in different slot, 2 agp cards both work, tried a pci card dont kno if that works, and the power supply is on the right setting, dont kno if it is good but i get all fans and ect., aslo two monitors both which work.
i have come to the dreadful conclusion that it has to be a CPU or MOBO issue if this is the sad case, how would i kno which, and for sure because im 14 with limite income so it would suck to have to buy a new cpu and mobo.
