Question about Computers & Internet
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.
