Blank screen after xp welcome screen no power to keyboard
I'm working on an Asrock K7vt2 mobo with an AMD Duron 1.30ghz proc 128mb (pc133) sdram winxp. AGP 4x AMI bios v.3.31a Prob started after attempting to add 128mb more ram. I was already getting 1 beep at startup. After adding the ram, I began getting 1 beep, pause and 2 short beeps. PC will boot as far as the xp welcome screen then goes black never to get to the desktop. I also lose the keyboard at this point. I reinstalled xp, no luck same symptoms. I switched out mem for 512mb ddr still no luck. I took out cmos battery for a while (over 30mins.) Got different set of beep codes, set bios to default settings, and still same symptoms.
I have also tried fixmbr with no luck.
PC will boot to safe mode with a start bar and working kybd and mouse, but desktop still blank. Can anyone help, Please?

Ok, with your current set up, what beeps are you getting? Also, while you have a blank desktop, hit CTRL+ALT+DELETE and you'll have Task Manager come up, click File and then New Task and type in "explorer" without quotes and hit enter.
That should restore your desktop. Let me know how it goes.

PC66 SDRAM PC66 SDRAM is the original module speed of SDRAM. PC66 SDRAM was the earliest version of SDRAM and therefore came in a number of smaller megabyte sizes than later versions. Most early motherboards were rated for PC66 SDRAM. The available sizes are 32MB (megabytes), 64MB and 128MB. PC100 SDRAM
PC100 SDRAM was released after PC66 SDRAM and runs at a higher speed. It has the same number of pins as the earlier memory module and is capable of utilizing the same RAM slot. The only difference when installing this SDRAM in compatible computers with older systems (PC66 slots) is that the SDRAM will run at a slower speed. PC100 RAM comes in sizes such as 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB and 512MB. PC133 SDRAM
The last generation of SDRAM is PC133. The PC133 memory provided a speed upgrade and comes in larger sizes than previous generations of SDRAM. PC133 modules are backward compatible with older SDRAM slots. The PC133 memory, however, will be forced to run at the slot's slower bus speed (PC66 or PC100). The memory comes in sizes like 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1024MB.

Hope this helps you out. Have a Happy and safe 4th of July weekend!
Unfortunatly your still running low end CPU power and low end agp graphics. Your going to pay 150-200 just for a fair PCIe/AGP HD/3D VC. If $200 doesnt hurt (and this is the lowest price best option), then might I suggest Mobo/CPU/RAM for around $200 that would do the trick and allow for future upgrades. You might also need a power supply. I just built one less than 3 weeks ago for a friend and it fairs against my own gaming comp.

Try to separate the power cord of your monitor from your system or maybe if your using UPS(uninterrupted power supply) directly plug the UPS to the wall outlet. either you can use pretty voltage regulator to the regulate the AC power. if not solve the problem try to examine the your system power supply.
