Re: black screen after start up

Try this: 1- remove your graphics card 2- Remove your RAM dimms 3- remove the battery from CMOS 4- remove the power cable 5- try and power your computer so he actually runs out of electricity still in the condensers. 6- with a rubber, gently but firmly, rub the contact pins in your RAM and your Graphics Card 7- with a brush, remove any dust that there might be on the both RAM slots and Gaphics slots (AGP r PCI-EX) 8- Plug it all back in (battery, RAM and Graphics Card and power cable) 9- Boot your system normally 10- check me back just to know if it worked. my Regards -Pedro Silva

I bought a 1GB samsung PC2700 DDR memory for P4PE motherboard. After installed it, the PC could not started. Is that memroy compatible for P4PE?

This page lists the type of ram that is compatible with your system, pay close attention to the voltage.

Take the part number from the stick you're trying to install and punch it into Google to see what the exact specs are.You may find that the voltage is different...

Note: I am not affiliated with the linked vendor it's for illustrative purposes only.

Black screen and three beeps

your m/boar is now not supporting the ddr which you are putting in, so you have to replace your ddr with Kingston DDR it'll solve the problem

Asus k8v-mx will not boot up

Try removing the memory cards and leave them blank. Turn on the power. If you notice beeps, the memory cards may be at fault. If not, there is a problem with your motherboard

No dispaly

The 2 extra wires will most probably be temperature sensors.
If your using the onboard video, then make sure you have memory in the first DIMM slot (it will say DIMM1 beside it)

If that dosn't solve the problem then try these:
  • Remove the memory and reseat it. Make sure to put it back in the correct way. There is a notch towards one end that will match the notch of the memory slot. Press it in until the 2 clips lock fully, then give it a gentle wiggle side to side while pushing down still.
  • Listen to the beeps your computer makes when starting up. A single short beep is what you want to hear. If you hear. If you hear something else then post back what it does. There are long and short beeps that could be involved.
  • Disconnect all the IDE cables from the back of the drives. You can leave the power cables connected. When they go back in they also have a notch and can only go in one way.
Try those for a start and post any progress you make. Also just double check the video cable is correctly attached at both ends to the computer and to the monitor.

Hp motherboard startup problem!!

hmmm my sussgestion in yourr case is that, don't attach all things at once. do the following step bye step.

Step 1). Attach SMPS (power supply to the board), Front Panel Connectio, and an in built speaker and CPU (don't add RAM, HDD, FDD, VGA Card or any thing els)

Power on and watch/Listen carefully:

Case 1: if you can hear a long beep, then your CPU and board is OK

Case 2: No beep means CPU or board is faulty. Try to Reconnect CPU again and do step 1.

Step 2) Now power off and add RAM only.

Power on and watch/Listen carefully.

Case 1: if you can hear the ok beep it means till now your RAM is Ok
otherwise clean your RAM connection and add it again.

Further you can add your VGA, HDD CD-ROM/DVD, PCI Devices etc. and easily short-out your problem.

Only fans are starting - nothing else

Have you checked the CMOS/BIOS Battery? How about reseting the BIOS jumpers?

Test the system using Motherboard with processor and 1 RAM, just connect power and screen only, switch it on. It it fails try another memory... Whether the memory, board of processor is the problem.

Fixya me when done....

Post me back if it doesn't work...

No Video Output - New RAM - Tried Most Things

Without sounding silly. Have you tried replacing your new memory with your old memory? Just to see if your Pc boots normally. This will narrow down the root cause. This board only will only handel this type of memory.
Single channel, unbuffered, 2.5V DDR266/333/400, (2)184-pin DIMM sockets, max 2GB

No screen display at all and no short beep for post-intel D845WN board

Try the old memory back in and see if you get the bios screen showing up, if not find the clear cmos jumper either marked JBat 1, clrclk, clrcmos or similar and try again. If neither your old memory or new no longer allows the pc to boot, i would say that the motherboard has been stressed when you have fitted the memory by forcing a flexing in the board and damaging the cmos chip, only replacing the board can resolve the issue if that is the case

Logo screen, but no POST test

Try removing all unneeded hardware leaving only the core components needed to see your board post (processor, memory, motherboard and external video if your board doesn't have onboard) see if it now posts. check to make sure your hardware is installed correctly (memory is seated and processor & heatsink are firmly inplace) Is your new board bigger than the old one? does it make any contact with the case behind the board causing it to short? You could also try your processor in another board. Good Luck
