Question about ASUS P4S533 Motherboard
Ok, I have this computer that when turns on.....everything powers on but the video. There are also no posts sounds. I've already done all the basic stuff......HOWEVER, the hard drive said invalid system disk or something when I tried to boot it in another computer. BUT, I can access the hard drive as a slave. Anyway....I tried a windows xp cd....but got the blue screen trying to do a clean format....but that probably has something to do with the manufacturer....so I would have to totally format that as a slave I guess.
Furthermore, on the other problem.....I'm sure it's probably the motherboard...but is there a sure fire way of telling if it's the MB or CPU? I took the fan and heatsink of the CPU and powered on briefly (couple of seconds).... the processor got really hot....so that makes me think that it's the motherboard...or bios. Any comments? Thanks,
