Question about Computers & Internet
Hello and thanks in advanced for any help.
I have MSI MS-6577 motherboard (motherboard name: Gamila2-GL60) inside a HP a712n pavilion desktop.
The PC was running fine and the only thing I can remember before it went downhill was that I unplugged a SAMSUNG P2 mp3 player and pressed the power switch until the entire system powered down.
Now whenever I try to power the system on my monitor goes into sleep mode. I do not hear any BEEP codes but everything else powers on fine, fans run, cd and dvd drive power on. harddrive even whirrs, etc.
However, there is no POST I have tried to reset the BIOS, clear the CMOS, checked for surges on a non-conductive surface. and also ran the system bare ( no hard drive or cd / dvd ), and the PSU was checked on another system.
Can it be a virus? How else can isolate the problem?
Hi there. Ok, have you tried connecting it to another monitor, to see if the same thing happens? Though to be honest, I think the same thing will happen.
If the same thing does happen, try following these steps to see if you can isolate the problem:
Change the CMOS/BIOS battery, to see if the current one is faulty. If it works, then you know the original was faulty.
If it still doesn't work:
Disconnect everything, (hard drive, cd drive, floppy drive and the PSU), also disconnect the cables from the motherboard. Take out any PCI or AGP cards you may have. Now take out the RAM.
Ok, now to isolate the problem:
If you are using more than 1 stick of RAM, only put 1 stick back in. If you only have 1 stick, put it back in a different slot. Make sure that it is seated in properly, by checking that the bits of plastic on the side of the slot have snapped back into place and are straight. If they are at an angle, then it's not seated properly.
Connect the PSU to the motherboard.
Now for your VGA. If you have a VGA port on your motherboard, connect the monitor to that port.
Plug in your keyboard, then your power cable. Turn it on, and see if it starts.
If the same thing still happens, then you have a faulty/corrupt BIOS. Unfortunately, that will mean you need a new motherboard. You can test this by using another motherboard, (if you have, or can borrow), in your system with just the hardware connected that I listed above.
If you need anymore help, or need me to clarify anything, just let me know.
