New Mobo & Processor but nothing happening

Hi,
I have recently renewed my Motherboard and processor as my previous one died after a power surge.
I have installed a Gigabyte s-series motherboard and dual core processor & upgraded to a new 450 watt power supply , however when I turn on the PC the cooling fans work but nothing else, not getting any bleeps, Monitor not receiving signal ( I have tried another monitor still nothing).
Any ideas on what could be wrong and how I can get it working?
Thankyou.

    Can you explain why I need a more powerful supply as I was advised by the parts supplier that 450 watts would be fine??

    Hi,

    The RAM is definitely compatible and what size PSU do you suggest?

    Can you also tell me why the 450 watt cant power up the mobo?

    I appreciate your help

    Regards

    Richard

    because i have some clients that has this motherboards at first we have the same problem as yours after we change the PSU into greater one.. the pc boots up make sure that your RAM is compatible to your motherboard check your RAM Frequency first. and one last thing i recommend u use a branded PSU like cool master or just search the net to find a branded PSU.. as you choose the Gigabyte S series your building a monster PC..

Asrock N7AD-SLI Motherboard LED


The fans and indicators working for a sec would normally mean that your power supply is Ok. This flash of current must trigger a switch in the mobo to start the boot process. This is not happening. The RAM is a principal player here if it does not connect the memory to the processor nothing will happen. Assuming the RAM is correct and has worked faultlessly before, remove and clean the teeth with an eraser. This prob can also be caused by the VGA card not connecting. Usually alarms sound if your mobo speaker is connected but that depends on each mobo. These are basic steps that usually start machines that have been inactive for a time or have recently been exposed to high humidity. There could be other faults...............

If you "popped" the power supply, I would check to see if the RAM might have taken a hit as well. Ram chips and CPU are sensitive when it comes to power surges. I would troubleshoot the system, unplug everything. you need monitor, power, cpu, and ram (1 at a time). Check to see if the system will POST. if you do get it to POST, start with 1 item at a time and see if the system will POST every time. If nothing happens, there is a chance you may have a damaged motherboard or cpu.

you must replace your motherboard! it is already dead.this are the common problem of your board (p4s800mx) they are sensitive from power surges. unlike their successor (p4s533mx). this series didn't pass power test their regulators are too weak to withstand abrupt power changes.but if you want to revive it, tou must have skills on soldering small capacitors at the back plate (solder side) of the mobo. it is across the processor PIN side at the middle. this is my email : almond_expert@yahoo.com

New Motherboard & Processor not working


Usually this symptom has to do or with memory modules with problems or the VGA adapter (integrated) could be damaged. First try to reset the BIOS of *********** taking out the battery and using the reset jumpers informed in the Mother Board manual. Then put the battery and the jumpers back to the factory default position and try again.
If this doesn't work, try to plug the power cord to another 220V as the ground could cause this type of problems.
You can also try to install another VGA adapter to check if you receive the VGA signal in your monitor.
Hope it helps...
Please tell us about your progress.
Best regards

New Mobo & Processor but no Bleeps etc


Could be the power supply is not strong enough to power the system. Replace the power supply with one that is between 350 - 450 watts. This should provide ample power to the system.
