Question about Computer Cases
I recently purchased a new motherboard and processor because my old processor overheated. I installed CPU, memory, and video card and i get all the fans and lights on but no beep codes or POST when the system is running. There is no video, although the screen does flicker when i turn the power switch on. In short, all fans + lights on, no POST or beep codes. I RMA'd this motherboard because i thought it was the problem but am getting the same problem with the new motherboard Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz LGA 775 MSI P6N SLI Platinum LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard EVGA 256-P2-N615-TX GeForce 7600GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card 650 watt power supply
Hi, sounds like a RAM problem, if you have 2 RAM sticks, pull one out and put the second one in DIMM one, try that then try 1st one in DIMM 1, next test is to try a friends RAM. IF all fails go back to where you purchased the board and have them test it under warranty. Regards mistyman

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
