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

    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..

Motherboard replace processor cpu i have an hp pavilion a820n tower with no cpu or power supply can u tell me what kind i need?


the processor to fit the mobo is a pentium 4 socket 775. the original was a 3.2G according to the HP website.
most standard 500 watt power supplies should fit.
it does concern me why there is no processor or power supply in it though.
are you sure the mobo is ok? the only reason I would think these parts have been removed is because the mobo is dead and they've been transplanted into something else.

No power


There are quite a few possibilities here. Do you leave your computer on while you're not home? If so, it's possible the computer overheated. If that happened, most likely you processor is damaged, and will have to be replaced. There may have been a power surge, which could have damaged the power suppply or the motherboard. It does nothing when you push the button? There's also a remote chance the switch is merely broken... though I can't say I've ever actually seen that happen. If it does absolutely nothing, it's most likely the power supply, however. If the motherboard or processor were bad, it would probably beep when you tried to turn it on. Not definitely, but probably.

This machine was running a 1.2 processor which I now know is the fastest processor the mobo will support. However, and before I knew this, I placed a 1.53 processor (AX1800DMT3C) in the slot and the bios...


The original CPU was 1200 Mhz, namely 12 times the 100 Mhz "clocking" supplied by the motherboard.
The new CPU is 1.53 Mhz, namely 11.5 times a 133 Mhz clocking, if the motherboard can supply that rate of clocking.

If your motherboard can only supply 100 Mhz clocking,
then the new CPU would run at 1150 Mhz (namely its 11.5 multiplier over the 100 Mhz clocking), i.e., slower than the original CPU.

Can you try the 1.2 processor in some other motherboard?
It's possible that you "killed" it, when you removed it,
or after you removed it, by giving it a static-electricity burst.

Do you have another processor that you can try in your motherboard?

What happens if you put the 1.53 processor into the motherboard?
Does it POST (Power On Self Test) ?

No power, front panel light is always on


Try to flash the bios once if there is a problem still then try with a ordinary PSU. It will be better if you post the motherboard specs also

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.

Pc wont boot


Have you recently experienced a power surge or had an electrical (thunder) storm in your area? Potentially your motherboard and/or processor could be toast since the fan running and CD Rom drive opening will continue to function because they receive power separately from the motherboard via the power supply. If you have access to a different compatible processor, you could try to install it in the motherboard to rule out a motherboard failure, otherwise you're looking for a new motherboard.
