This problem could be caused by the processor not starting or any other hardware problem but since u said that they all work on other systems then i think its a processor or fan or even a bios broblem "but i'd rule out the bios problem because with most bios problems the monitor still starts to tell you that you have a bios problem, just to be sure u'll find a small battery plugged in a socet in your motherboard, just unplugit, clean it and return it", if the computer still doesn't restart then its most probably a processor problem.

Hi, have you checked inside your computer with the power on? The problem may be as simple as the cooling fan on your heatsink not working. also check if you have a case fan and see if that is working. If these are running, then check that ALL POWER CABLES TO THE MOTHERBOARD are plugged in tight. If all this fails you will need to test your power pack. If you have a multimeter test that the power cables to the board have power, Grey is neutral, black negative and the rest are either 5v, 6v, or 12v. If you can not do this test then swap the power pack from your other computer and see how this works, let us know if this fails Regards mistyman

Asrock P4 combo faking death

Friend, Please check to see if the red line on the cable connecting the HDD and the combo etc is towards number 1 connecting pin both on the combo and on the HDD. If not so then correct it right away as you may burn the motherboard or the combo or the HDD. It is a red line on the outside of the cable connecting the HDD or the Combo to the IDE prot on the motherboard.

you posted several problems and some are resulted in your trying to diagnose the problem. IF the monitor is black yet you can see the cpu lights meaning it is reading but does not power up all the hardware. In my years of experience in solving hundreds of computer. This is primarily cause by memory or video card. Just re-install or re-insert the memory or video card. This will likely solve the problem. IF just in case the problem still exist replace the memory (RAM) or the video card to check which of which has the defect.
In regards to your computer performing disk scan, this is part of windows utility to fix the hard drive. This is usually cause by pressing the reset button. This appears because when your computer does not power up you reset it. This is normal and nothing to worry about.

Red Light

Hi Ivematthew,
Usually, that red light is simply an indicator that the mainboard is receiving a 5volt supply from the power supply and you must NEVER install or remove any mainboard components whilst this light is on. In fact, dont touch the instde if the case or the mainboard if this light is on.
If you are getting a no signal on your monitor, try turning off at the mains and pulling the plug out, then touch the metal chassis of the case BEFORE you touch anything inside the case.
Then carefully remove your video card and re-install it into the same slot, you can even do this a couple of times. Then try booting the system up.
Also, check that both ends of the video cable are securely connected and that the cable appears undamaged.
I have to ask, Is the system booting up?
Are you getting a single beep at the start of the boot or is your system beeping more then once?
If it is beeping more then once, count the length and number of beeps and go to the ASUS website where you can use the beep code to locate the particular fault the mainboard is signalling about.
Let me know how things go and email me if you are still having issues OK?
