Hi all, good morning. I have a problem with my cpu, it's a fujitsu fmv. Before this, the cpu is running good. Then, last night i took out its ram (sdr 128mb pc 133 ecc) and put in another sdr ram to check wheather the other ram is good or not, but nothing happen (the cpu just blank meaning the ram is spoilt-right?)
So, i put in back the original ram (sdr 128mb pc 133 ecc) but still nothing happen.
I've check the ram, hard disk, ide cable, power cable, mobo, monitor, by swapping it with another cpu but still nothing happen. When i turn it on, only the windows xp logo come out then it hang and the screen just went blank BUT the monitor light keep blinking.
I really don't know why and what is happening. I just took out the ram, put in another ram-i didn't work so i put back the original ram and this is what happen. I'm confuse. Can any genius out there help me with my problem..? I really appreciate it..

Re: cpu can not boot
I don't think it is a ram issue.Try this when the computer is booting,hit the F8 key. That boots you into safe mode where only the most necessary drivers and programs load. If it loads in safe mode that is good. A little bit of daignostic work can locate the problem after that.

You should only hear 1 beep. That 1 beep is power on self test, known as P.O.S.T. That loud flat line sound (And I'm pretty sure about this), was you're CPU. Just because you ran & passed the stressed test is nothing compared to running the system under load? That's why when you put in you other memory nothing changed. If you hadn’t mentioned you clocked up the FSB I would have come to the same conclusion hearing the loud flat line statement. Can you test the CPU in another board? That is about the only way to be sure it's not the CPU. Memory does not make that kind of sound. Memory makes short & long beeps. You can try clearing the cmos/bios by going to pg. 2-18 in you're user manual. This will reset the bios back to default settings & cross you're fingers!
If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.
you need to take every ram, board and cable out of place... then clean it all perfectly... (isopropilic alcohol is the best to use in cleaning hardware) then reconnect it all and just try powering on with just motherboard, cpu and ram, NOTHING ELSE... if the system starts... you must connect all pieces, one by one, booting the system after includding each thing to isolate the problem if there is one... after all peaces are back togeter, test the system normally.
IF MOTHER does not boot only with cpu and ram... you have hardware problems either in mother, ram or cpu or power supply and you will need to replace hard... good luck
