    I have the same problem. When I use a high quality Tagan 330W power supply, regardless whether i am using the on-board or the Atoi 9200 SE AGP card 8x - the screen does not come to life. When i switch to a lower power, cheap psu, it works.

    Problem being the cheap power supply is mega noisy. the Tagan is whisper quiet.

    Any thoughts?

    the onboard video has failed, go out and buy a video card, or go get a new motherboard.

Unplug the data cable of your monitor and using a tester, check if it is carrying some electric current. If the tester doesn't show any current, try touching the pins of the data cable to make sure it doesn't give a shock on touch (do this on your own risk). If it does give some shock, you need to properly earth the monitor. So, earthing the monitor MAY solve the problem.

Good luck!

Why is power up for intel DQ965CO start up unreliable?


"No bios screen" If you mean that the screen is totally dead with no response at all, but when you power-up you DO hear the normal system beep, then first check your video cable to make sure connections are tight. Take the monitor and plug it into a different computer to make sure that the monitor has failed or not. If the monitor tests good, your case cooling fans and the CPU heatsink fan do spin up, if you do not get the usual system beep when booting, then you have a low-level failure of a component. This could be caused by only one of three things: your CPU (processor) has failed, the motherboard has failed, or possibly there is a problem with the power supply. I hang out at www.suggest-a-fix.com which is a free computer help forum. Post in the Hardware section and I will be along. This forum is not set up for complicated problems that require back-and-forth, in-depth communication.

Motherboard starts but no signal in the monitor


Hello here is the cpu list:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/P4i45G/?cat=CPU

Other cpu`s than them on the list, does not fit the mainboard.
This will cause the mainboard not to boot up, when the cpu is wrong.
The (wrong) cpu will fit the socket, but it does not fit the cache size, fsb, and so on.

Look also in the manual:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/P4i45G/?cat=Manual

The problem could also be the power supply failing, try to change that.

Did it boot up before you changed the cpu ???
Any beep codes ??

Look also at this page:

Good luck

Does the power supply fan spin up? does the cpu fan spin up? do any of the lights work? does the machine make a beeping noise? Is it plugged into the mains and switched on? is the monitor plugged in and switched on?

Pc not booting


If you hear the CPU fan turn on that doesn't mean the CPU itself is working. It can be only that the motherboard is getting power. Check all your connections such as monitor and peripherals and re-connect them. If you still don't get P.O.S.T. or ANY letters or boot options on your screen then your CPU is dead. (unless your monitor is bad)
Another easy diagnostic is using your ears. For example the pitch sound of the fan in some motherboards tends to lower and then increase because it's reading of the hard drive. This means your CPU is ok but either your graphics connection is bad or your monitor is.

My Screen is blank and fan continuously runs.


your computer is not posting that is why you do not hear a beep. This can happen for 1 of 10000000 reasons but I would start with checking the RAM then all the other hardware to find a loose connection/dead hardware.

Monitor not Running(shows only orange light)


Unplug everything from the motherboard leaving only processor, fan and memory and try to boot up. It will take you to bios screen halt after looking for boot device. If it uses a video card, make sure video card is properly inserted. Then start plugging in hard drive and other devices if system comes up.
