My motherboard is a 848A PC Chips motherboard. Have done all I could, new cpu, new videocard, powersuppy checked out fine, new hard drive,and cd/dvd reader but nothing will come up on the monitor. Monitor was checked. The power supply will run and cpu fan will run but nothing will show on monitor. I have already reset the CMOS and returned to normal mode with no results. Help.

Re: Computer powering up
It looks like your mother board is old one. If so clean it with IPA solution (Iso propyl alcohol). Replace the processor.Then try again.
You can also try changing your Video card. That can cause problems if not seated properly.
If nothing works get your motherboard serviced.

Sounds like a cpu overheat situation. Check the cpu temps in the bios and compare the temps with the maximum operating temp of your particular cpu. It might need better/or/new cpu thermal paste applied to your cpu, and also check that your cpu fan is running and locked down tight (and not loose)
if you buy a new mother board your motherboard might be needed to reformat sometimes, this is because of the drivers that are installed already in your hard disk...if you are able to login to your computer then go to control panel and remove old drivers and install new drivers... in this case you will be needed to format your hard drive...
When the PC starts up, do you get a BIOS display at all? Try fitting a graphics card into the board instead of using the built in port, if that works check the BIOS settings to see if the built in adapter has been disabled,
remove the RAM(MEMORY CHIPS) from *********** board and reinsert.if the problem is same replace the chips,get new chips.mostly cleaning the golden lines on the chip with pencil/school rubber solves the problem. No
beep is usually a power problem that can be related to the power supply,
motherboard or both. Always check your battery power before thinking there is a
bigger problem. Step3 One
beep is a normal POST. That means everything is fine. Two, Three, or Four short
beeps are normally about the memory of the machine. If there is a problem with
one of your memory chips you should get beeps of different combinations in this
area. If you get two or three short beeps, one or both of your memory chips
could be in trouble. Step4 Five
beeps point toward motherboard or CPU problems. Make sure your memory and video
card are seated properly. Try removing them and putting them back in, only if
you are comfortable with computers. Six, seven and eight beeps. Eight beeps
indicate problems with your video card. Six or Seven are CPU, or a bad chip on
the motherboard. Nine beeps mean the BIOS is bad. Replace the motherboard. Ten
beeps means the problem is in the CMOS. All chips need to be replaced. thanks.
I haven't encounter this one, but you may want to check whether your CPU extra power is plugged in. Also, seclude the problem by checking if it is the power supply or the video card that is causing the problem. Remove the videocard and use the old one and check if it passes through. How much power can your power supply give and what model is your videocard?
your going to have to reboot the computer with the reboot disk ,,
once thats done turn off computer and install the video card and then also insert the drivers disk that came with the video card this should work has for me and i have done 100s of video cards Although if you bought a good video card and still have a 400w power supply your going to run into trouble make sure you have a 500w power suplpy or better to run a good video card ,,,,,
how to fixed your motherboard no display and no beep, 1st you must clean your memory using eraser and brush for painting if not display again try to clean your video card if have a video card using again the eraser and painting brush if not display again try to pull out the bass in the cdrom and floppy disk. if not display you must replace the memory and video card., if not display try to change your motherboard. The beep put speaker in the motherboard.. gudluck guys
