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.

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.
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 Eduardo
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.
