It is obvious that your system is NOT booting. Recheck the wiring harness and ensure that the motherboard is wired correctly. Check for boot. Take your memory out and then reseat the modules. Check for boot. Take your CPU fan and CPU out, clean with alcohol pad and put new thermal paste. Check for boot. If none of these solutions work then I would assume that you have a bad motherboard or CPU.

    P.S.

    When you perform the procedures I suggested make sure that nothing i.e. hard drives, cdroms, etc. are connected to the motherboard.

    Also try switching out your power supply.

    A 320 watt power supply seems a little light. I would try a 400W or better.

A problem with the CPU, memory , power supply or the motherboard itself will cause this problem. Try reseating the CPU and the memory. Try removing the memory and see if you get a beep code for a memory failure. If you don.t you probably have either a bad cpu or a bad motherboard.

The system speaker is usually a set of four pins and you use the outside pair to connect the speaker. You may need to go to the Asus web site to download the manual if you don't have it. Try to reset the bios either by shorting the appropriate pins or by removing the battery for a while.

My monitor won't stay on


WOW another all in one problem. Looks like you are just about ready to be without a computer for a while. If you at least had things separate instead of being an all in one you could just plug another monitor and keep on rolling.

It sounds like either the LCD Inverter or the LCD Screen has issues.

Power indicater light is orange instead of green and computer screen is black


This usually indicates no signal from the video card. If this happens at boot and no POST screen display is seen, try checking the connections between the monitor and the video card, there may be a loose cable. Inspect the ends of the cable for bent or damaged pins. Or try swapping the connection cable.

If this is happening after the post screen, then you have a video driver problem, which can be resolved by booting into safe mode, uninstalling your video card drivers and restarting into normal mode.

Hope this helps,
Gill

Green light flashing, but monitor won't come on


Sounds like signal issue, some older monitor lights do not turn orange when no signal is present from the computer. They simply blink instead of staying solid.

- I would test to see if monitor works on another computer with a known working monitor. If the monitor works then you know you have a video output issue.

If the monitor does not, you have a dead monitor.

Your monitor is going into power saving mode. When it receives no video signal from the computer, it will stay powered for a few seconds before giving up and presuming the PC is off hence why it stays green for a while, then goes orange.

The problem is with your PC not the monitor(s)

GA-7VRX Motherboard won't boot


Hi sebaswis, am I correct that this Gigabyte GA-7VRX is a replacement MB? (I read your other posted questions). http://www.fixya.com/support/t1399506-computer_boot_when_power You mentioned you put your old system back together & it worked fine. If mother board is shorted to the system case you will see the CPU fan spin for a second. Most motherboards use a green led which represents there is stand-by power running to the board.(This is normal). I am unsure why your led is orange. (Its not mentioned in your manual & manual does not show the led?s location). Was the other GA-7VRX MB led always orange or was it also green? Suggest you disassemble the heat-sink from the CPU. You mentioned you installed a new XP 2500+ CPU. If a pin on the CPU was bent during installation of CPU into the socket or if no thermal grease was applied or too little to the top of CPU, either would give you: CPU fan spins for a second & nothing else seems to run. Look over the link provided below. It is a guide to how to install a motherboard. (You may not need this but Its worth going over all the steps). http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/145 As far as the power supply. If the MB's are the same (GA-7VRX) & the old system ran with 220W, the newer one should also function. Clarify these questions for me sebaswis. Mike

Pc won't boot up


If the Monitor Lights change from GREEN to YELLOW then it cannot detect a signal from the Video Card. If you have a different monitor, hook it up and see if it makes a difference.
If it does get another monitor...
If it does not make a difference. Open the computer and see if the monitor cable plugs into the Motherboard directly or into a video card.
Which ever way it is try adding another video card.

You need to check what kind of video card you need, AGP, EPCI, etc...

If it has a video card in one of the slots, remove it, try another one in the same slot.
If it plugs directly into the Motherboard add a video card to the slot nearest the power supply.

*NOTE: any video card you try to install will work with your monitor without drivers,
If you install the card and turn it on you will see stuff on the screen without installing drivers.
When you install an operating system, ie: Windows, Linux, Unix, etc., then you will need
to Install drivers.

Pc wont read monitor


If you look at the monitor there will be an led light on the front that is always orange or yellow when the computer is off but still connected to the monitor. This led will turn green when the computer boots up, sometimes even showing a "no signal" display before boot. If you see the 'command line'  text during the boot process (video info, BIOS version, POST text, etc) then the monitor is being recognized by the computer. If that text goes away and the led goes back to orange then it is a driver or operating system problem. Pressing whatever key is prompted at the lower left of the display, if you have a display, like F1, F2, F10, Delete or whatever will get you to the setup program and all is good with the display/computer connection and a green light will stay on. If you never get that green led light then either the video card is bad or not seated properly

My pc is going insane and so am I!


You need to go back into your manual and take a good look at the pin configuration connected from the Mb to your case. ASUS has a great site to help installing a new board. Check this out: http://support.asus.com/troubleshooting/troubleshooting.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
