PC doens't boot up HELP!

Hi AMD athlon won't boot

My Asus motherboard will not boot. I have A AMD Athlon processor and 128MB . The problem is nothing appears on the screen when I turn it on. I have checked the graphics card and concluded that is not the problem. It has to be the moterboard or CPU. When I turn the Computer on it gives power to everything, but nothing happens.

There are a few things you can try, the trouble shooting doesnt necessarily have to follow in this order. Best thing I can suggest is try re-seating the processor, and if that is the only stick of RAM you are using see if you can find another to test with. If it still doesnt work after either of those, you might have to try a different processor. Granted, this is if you have those parts on hand. If you still are unable to even get a POST beep, then I would also try snatching the CMOS battery, unpluging it and then hitting the powerbutton reset the CMOS to default settings. If it still doesnt work after you get back then there, then I would snatch every removable piece of hardware from the board down to just the processor/heatsink/fan, memory, and PSU. If you get a POST beep after that, then try adding one piece of hardware at a time until you find the problem piece. If it still doesnt work then there is a pretty good chance that the board is dead.

    I honestly cannot say with 100% certainty without being there; however if you went through all the steps that I gave, there is a good likelihood that the board is fried. If you was not able to test with a different processor and memory there is a possibility that it could be either of those. I guess just try turning it on with nothing but the processor and fan attached and not anything else. If you still don't hear a POST beep, then take a close look at the processor. Sometimes with the AMD's when they overheat you can see some scorching on the chip itself (although I have only seen two in about eight years). If it looks clean, odds are higher that the board is fried. I have seen some fried chips over the years but there is a much greater likelihood that it is the board. As bad as it sounds all I could really suggest at this point is that if all else has failed, check newegg.com for a new board, possibably processor combo. I always hate replacing parts when I have no test parts to test with to be certian but options are narrowing as to what it can be at this point.
