Nothing happened when installed new computer - Please help

I am installing two computers. One is almost new parts except the DVD drive. When I turned on the power supply, it was on, then off, then on. But, nothing is on the monitor. I put the new motherboard, memory, and new power supply. However, when I turned on the power supply, I only saw the light flash on the keyboard for 1 second. Nothing happened after that. Is the problem on static? I am pretty sure all the wires are connected correct. What can I do?

Re: Nothing happened when installed new computer - Please...

Since the components are new,it must be other problem...I think that the problem is at the motherboard's jumpers...the power button, the restart button have wires that connect them with the motherboard so, u must not mess up the jumpers...i suggest u should download your motherboard manual and see exactly how the new components should be installed...

Computer has power, but nothing happens

How long is a piece of string?

A list of parts is not going to indicate whether you have connected or installed it correctly. Have you put or attempted to put software on the drive? Is the HDD partitioned and formatted? No drivers installed for video or sound... unless you have an operating system installed.

Too many variables to answer this question, without details of what was done or wasn't done Hardware will operate to some degree even without op system ( monitor and satac DVD drive)

Thanks for using FIXYA

I installed everything the CPU, RAM, and everything else. Connected all switches at the right places and the BIOS is on normal operation. I turn on the computer and its a blank screen nothing shows up....

ok, looking at the specifications All I can recommend is the following. double check the Video card to make sure it is properly seated and that it does not exceed the capabilities of the motherboard. 2 Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the CPU and case wiring/power supply and turn the computer on. If the system completes the post test, you will hear at least 1 beep and should hear several for the video card not being connected, then start installing components 1 at a time till you find the one causing the problem. Start with the Video card and then the ram as these are most likely where your problem is unless you have a faulty power supply which will be the problem if you don't get a completed post with nothing else connected.

Dear Mr. Yaseen; To install windows XP SP2, you will need a disk that self installs the windows. You will be asked very few questions. Now, who said that the computer does not see your drice? In order that we can check that we will need a Rescue Floppy Disk. When you bought the computer you were given two (2) CD/DVD, one contains the OS and the other the drivers. If the drive C is corrupt beyond repair, you will need the Rescue Floppy Drive, which open the way to MSDOS, upon which Windows XP SP2 is based. Remove all CD/DVD from the computer and insert the Rescue Floppy Diskette. It should start immediately. It will ask you one question, if you want to have CD/DVD help and you say yes. The rest will happen automatically and a new drive named "A" will be established: There is no drive "B" in normal windows; drive C is usually the "windows XP SP2" drive; drive D can be the C

hi, I think you have not finish yet your OS installation, when installing OS just wait for it till you have see the start menu pop-up then there you go, you can now remove your installation CD. And express gate is a browser included in your ASUS motherboard that lets you boot up in seconds and enjoy your stuff even your OS is not fully loaded yet..

Built a new computer but it won't go throught POST

The memory is the problem then, your board does not support it. From the specs page here: Supports Dual Channel DDR2 667/533, 2 x DIMM slots, Max. capacity up to 4GB

Change the RAM and it should work.

Katstu, Are any fans, hard drive or LEDs coming on at all, even briefly? If nothing try the following: -Check each screw, card, connector and component you installed to make sure nothings being shorted out or is improperly connected. Common occurrences are screws touching capacitor or other component leads. -Check the power connectors to make sure everything is connected correctly and that all the contacts are still mounted in the plastic connector correctly. -Check the output on your power supply and verify it?s rated for your motherboard. -Check the 110/220 voltage slide switch to ensure its on 110 (US). If the power supply has a rocker on/off switch make sure its in the on (1) position. -Make sure the motherboard is correctly grounded to the chassis per your instructions. Typically the mounting screws touch a grounding plane on the motherboard and in turn ground that to the chassis. If your using plastic mounting studs that might be a problem. -Verify the computer case power switch is working correctly. -Make this as basic a machine as possible: remove and add in cards (except primary video card), remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. If you get this far your processor or motherboard may be defective, it happens on occasion. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Booting problems

As you probably have already figured out your motherboard is running into some type of error during the boot process. Try restarting the computer and pressing the del key several times after a second or two. Can you get into the BIOS now? The first thing I would do is to make this as basic a machine as possible: remove and add in cards (except primary video card), remove all USB components, reduce the size of your memory (RAM) and if you have multiple hard drives remove all except your boot drive. Unplug your computer, plug it back in and reboot, paying close attention to anything that is displayed on the monitor and noting any changes from before. If nothing changes can you tell us some more about the status of the computer or what led up to this? Did you just build it; just install a new part, power problems, anything? Let us know what you turn up and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
