Question about Asrock P4I45GV R5 Motherboard
When ever I turn on the cpu only the fan starts to work and nothing comes on the monitor, cannot afford a new one at this time pl help me.
Check your RAM memory. Very often bad memory will cause the video to stop working. If you have more than one stick of memory try removing one of them or all but one if you have more than two. Be sure to power off your computer first and then remove the power cord from the power supply. There is usually still some power going to the motherboard even though it has been turned off. This will protect against damaging your memory while taking it out or putting it back in. Power on your machine and see if there is any change. If not, go through the steps above again and swap the first stick of memory with one of the ones you removed earlier. If there is still not any change then at least you know that it is not the memory causing the problem. (You must have at least one stick of memory in the computer for it to boot.) The next thing you might try is to swap out your video card with one that you know is working. If that does not help I would move next to the power supply. If you have a lot of devices installed in your computer (multiple CD/DVD drives, multiple hard drives, several USB powered devices, high-end video card(s), etc) you may be reaching the limits of your power supply capacity or your power supply may be going bad. It is possible for a machine to power on but not have enough power to run all of your devices.
