Black Screen(no boot up?)

I have installed everything correctly, i think. When i start up the computer all fans start up, and the motherboard number at the bottom right lights up with a number. But i have nothing showing up on the monitor...i have the graphics card in the forth slot down from the PCI-express expansion slot. I have a pci graphics card installed not a pci-express. If anyone can help me out i would appreciate it!!! Thank, Liljman1213

How do you fix a corrupted bios?

I don't think it's corrupt bios, maybe a virus or malware.
But if you can go to the computers maker website and download bios and install them the way they tell you to install them.

Dell xps 710 motherboard replaced with 700 motherboard but it does not boot

This could be any number of problems. First start with hardware. Is everything seated and connected correctly? Are the hard drives installed correctly. Are the power on pins on the board set correctly or pinned at all? Is the ram the correct ram?

Check the hard drives, are they functional, do they boot with other computers?

Use a volt meter and check that the power supply is producing the correct voltages on all the connectors and rails.

If that all checks out, it might be a bios error. Check your boot load order and if the motherboard is detecting the hard drives, check that the correct bios settings for OS management are in place as this is a server. Is the RAM power settings (voltage) and speed correctly selected? Will the computer boot from optical drive using a live CD? Will it boot from a USB live OS (like Ubuntu)?

Since it's not booting, you may not have compatible hardware or damaged hardware. The OS that's installed on the hard drives may not be able to load on the new (older model) motherboard due to driver incompatibility.

Foxconn 945P7AA-8KS2

Well to start, you do not give enough info ,for example what was you doing to the pc when this happened,was you installing the o/s, however try the following.
Ensure that all connections to the board are in, check ram is seated fully into its slot,check that the cpu & fan are installed correctly,infact remove everything and start again,maybe you will need to re-install your operating system, if infact you had already installed it .
good luck

Computer won't power up

the wiring isnt the problem i dont think, as the system wouldnt have started in the first place, the message would have read NTLDR not found, this means that the processor cannot find the system files to load windows and that there is either a hard drive fault or a system fault. If you can get into the bios you need to change the first boot device to cdrom and start the system up using your XP disc and do a system repair.

D915GAG problem

this cant have anything to do with only replacing a cooler, unless when fitting it you have caused some sort of stress damage to the motherboard. Check all seatings of ram, graphics card and power connections in case they have been dislodged. I assume you have tried resetting the cmos settings in case there is a corrupt bios for some reason. The only other check is to see if the cooler is starting up straight away, as the processor may be shutting down if there is no fan running, or the motherboard is reading the temperatures incorrectly and not enabling you to boot.
